Just recently, the Los Angeles Mayor, in conjunction with the Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety, announced what they call the ADU Standard Plan Program. With this new program, the Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety has pre-approved over 24 ADU plans for homeowners and their Los Angeles ADU contractors to choose from.
The main point to offering these pre-approved ADU design plans is to help Los Angeles ADU contractors, homeowners, and ADU builders to secure a permit faster and cheaper than before. By selecting one of the designs offered in the ADU Standard Plan Program, permits can be secured in just a day rather than the 4 to 6 weeks it took before. Perhaps the best part is all of these pre-approved plans are designed in a way that will work for most residential properties. Whether you are looking for a two-story design or a studio, the pre-approved plans cover them all.
Another benefit to the ADU Standard Plan Program is how it helps with the housing crisis Los Angeles is currently facing because it allows for more affordable housing options. By using pre-approved design plans, homeowners and Los Angeles ADU contractors have an easier time designing and building ADUs on existing properties, which aids in creating more living space. ADUs are not just for renting, though; they can also be used to enhance a homeowner’s lifestyle by creating a backyard oasis or a home office.
Current Los Angeles ADU Approved Standard Plans
Los Angeles ADU contractors and homeowners currently have the ability to choose from 28 pre-approved ADU design plans. All 28 of these plans offer different styles, sizes, and functionality. Sizes for these detached ADU plans range from 200 to 1,200 square feet.
