Thinking of adding an Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) to your Woodland Hills, CA, property? You're not alone. 

ADUs, also known as granny flats, mother-in-law suites or backyard homes, are a popular and versatile option for homeowners looking to maximize their space. Whether you dream of generating rental income, creating a home for aging parents or having a dedicated workspace, an ADU can be a valuable investment.

But it has to be done right.

This guide will equip you with the knowledge you need to navigate the process of building a Woodland Hills ADU. We'll cover key considerations like permits, explore the financial benefits of ADUs and highlight why Southland Remodeling is the perfect partner for your ADU design-build project.

ADUs in Woodland Hills: Here's What You Need to Know

  1. Understanding Woodland Hills ADU Regulations and Permits

The good news is that Woodland Hills follows California's streamlined ADU regulations. This means the permitting process is generally faster and more affordable than traditional home additions. However, there are still essential steps to follow:

  • Zone Verification: Confirm your property allows ADU construction by contacting the City of Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety.

  • Preliminary Plans: Develop basic ADU plans outlining size, location and utilities.

  • Formal Application: Submit a completed application package with detailed plans and fees to the Department of Building and Safety.

This may all sound overwhelming, but we at South Land Remodeling are here to help with each of these items - taking it off your plate. We can guide you through each of these steps, including crafting your architectural plans, and ensure your ADU project adheres to all Woodland Hills and California ADU regulations.

2. The Benefits of Building an ADU in Woodland Hills

There are numerous advantages to adding an ADU to your Woodland Hills property:

  • Increased Property Value: ADUs are an excellent investment and can significantly boost your home's resale value, as they add valuable square feet to the home.

  • Earn Rental Income: Generate a steady stream of income by renting out your ADU as a short-term rental, studio apartment or guest house.

  • Multigenerational Living: Create a comfortable living space for aging parents, adult children or extended family.

  • Home Office or Studio: Utilize the ADU for a dedicated workspace, art studio, gym, pool house, kids play space and more.
