On September 27, 2016, Governor Brown signed two accessory dwelling unit (ADU) bills into State law, Assembly Bill 2299 and Senate Bill 1069, amending the State’s existing second unit law (Government Code Section 65852.2). Effective January 1, 2017, the new State standards stipulate that local ordinances that do not align with State law will be “null and void,” unless a local agency adopts an ordinance in accordance with the specified State provisions in Section 65852.2.

If you’re looking for a way to enlarge your home without shelling out for a full-scale addition, converting your garage into living space typically adds about 400 square feet (assuming it’s a two-car garage). The good news is that you’ll spend less than if you build an addition.
Converting a garage correctly will add square footage to your home, on an average, one square foot for the average house in Los Angeles worth $250-$350 making 400 SF of garage conversion worth $120,000 while the cost of converting a garage will probably be 70%-80% less!
