Planning Your Home Addition 

The first step when building a home addition is to plan it out. This involves taking measurements of the current structure as well as considering any potential design elements you would like incorporated into the new addition. Additionally, you will want to keep in mind any local building codes and regulations that may need adhered too when constructing your addition. Working with a professional builder such as 360Builders can help ensure that all steps are taken care of during the planning process. 

Choosing Materials for Your Home Addition 

Once the plans for your home addition have been made, choosing materials is the next step. Depending on where you live in Los Angeles County, there may be certain requirements for materials that must be used when constructing an ADU (Accessory Dwelling Unit). Some of these materials can include:  

  • Roofing material 
  • Insulation 
  • Windows and doors 
  • Flooring

Additionally, other materials such as paint colors or countertop finishes should also be taken into consideration when making decisions about what materials will be used in your home addition project. Working with a professional builder like 360Builders can help ensure that all details are covered and your project is constructed according to code and regulation requirements.   

Costs Involved with Building Home Additions in Los Angeles 

 The cost of building an ADU in Los Angeles can vary significantly depending on several factors including size, location, materials used and permits required. In some cases there may be additional fees such as impact fees or connection fees associated with connecting utilities or services such as water or electricity which should also be taken into account when calculating costs associated with building a new home addition.  

Time Frame for Building a Home Addition 

 The time frame for completing an ADU project in Los Angeles typically depends on several factors such as weather conditions or delays due to inspections by local authorities or utility companies which can add additional time onto projects if not accounted for properly during the initial planning phase. Additionally, if there are any issues encountered during construction that require further work or attention this too could potentially add additional time onto your overall timeline for completing the project. It’s important to factor all these variables into account when determining how long it will take from start to finish for completing your new ADU structure so that you have realistic expectations regarding timeline constraints for ending up with a completed unit ready for occupancy.
