Broadway and Hollywood stars. Published authors. Inventors. Philharmonic orchestra conductors. Silicon Valley entrepreneurs. Subject matter experts quoted in The New York Times or The Washington Post. You can be sure some of them were renters when they were in college or just starting out in their careers. Their proud former landlords own the bragging rights to say, “I knew them when.”
YOU could be the landlord to a future world mover and shaker by leasing an accessory dwelling unit (ADU) to an upscale renter.
Think about it: You have a large enough property to accommodate the right living + studio/office/study space for someone looking for – and who can afford – more than just any old rental.
People who go on to inspire others need their own inspiration, and a quiet, upscale ADU whose look and landscaping say “Muse,” would make for the ideal living space for such a renter: an interesting person who could enrich your life with more than just the additional source of income their rent would provide.
Let experienced, skilled contractor Randal G. Winter Construction, Inc. (RGWinter.com) help you expand your property, and your world, by building a rental ADU for you.
What is an ADU?
An ADU is basically an additional living quarter, a secondary house or apartment that is located on the same lot as a larger, primary single-family home. It is an independent living space that has its own entrance, living area, bathroom, and kitchen. It can be attached to or detached from the primary residence, and differing examples include a guest house or a garage with an apartment above, or the conversion of a garage into self-contained living quarters.
Homeowners build ADUs to earn extra income through rent, to accommodate elderly parents, a caregiver, a child returning home from college after graduation, or other relatives or family friends.
Why is now the right time to build an ADU?
According to a recent (2/25/22) Los Angeles Times article titled “So you want to build an ADU in California? Here’s what you need to know,” by L.A. Times Utility Journalism Team Senior Editor Jon Healey, changes in California state law since 2017, in part to help deal with our state’s housing shortage, have made it easier and less costly to obtain permits to build an ADU—and actually up to two ADUs on a property in some cases! In fact, a local builder quoted in the story says that “the easiest building project to get approved these days is an ADU.”
Once approved, the entire project, from sampling the soil, to breaking ground, to preparing the foundation, to building the structure and making it ready for your dream tenant to move in, could take as little as three months to half a year.
Our customized construction plan for you
While construction is happening, a dedicated project manager will be assigned to you as your go-to person during the entire job, answering questions by phone, e-mail, text, or in person, as needed, thus saving you precious time, and providing peace of mind.
Randal G. Winter knows that a lot of what goes into a building happens behind the scenes: in the laying of the foundation, the putting in of electrical wiring, plumbing, drywall, etc. There are no “jack of all trades, master of none” among our staff: For each job, we assign a team of professionals who are each experts in their trade, thus ensuring the best job quality and client satisfaction possible. In this case, the satisfied client(s) would be you AND, eventually, your discerning renter.
