Upland ADU Provides a First Home for Newlyweds

Upland, CA
1 bedroom
1 bath
550 sq. ft.

With the high cost of housing squeezing millennials’ budgets, a growing number of California couples are finding their first homes through ADUs. One just-married couple in Upland recently moved into a brand-new Spanish-style ADU, attached to the home of the groom’s father.

Saying I Do to the ADU

When Jovani and Eirene got engaged, Jovani’s dad offered to convert the master bedroom wing of his house into a 1-bedroom ADU for the couple to live in  — a wedding present for them. A Revival Homes partner contractor worked with the couple to design a neat, clean interior with plenty of natural light. The exterior fit seamlessly into the home’s existing Spanish style, with a new separate entrance and attractive landscaping.

Jovani and Eirene were happy to have the opportunity to live so close to Jovani’s dad. Nearly 20% of Americans live in multigenerational households, and ADUs make it easier for more young couples to live close to Mom and Dad, without being too close. And as couples start having children, having Mom and Dad nearby makes it easier to rely on them for help with childcare.

The Finished Product

The 550-square foot home has a spacious kitchen with modern appliances. The bedroom is large enough to double as a home office and music room — Jovani is a guitar player, while Eirene is a pianist. The bathroom is simple but neat, with clever use of shower tiles to create a small accent wall. The ADU has been a perfect first home for the happy couple.
