It is becoming increasingly popular to convert barns and storage above garages into Additional Dwelling Units. Utilizing this space for passive income is one of the least expensive ADU paths as there is often no structural or foundation work required. Shown below is the conversion of the attic space above a garage in a classic Dunn Barn. In this case we decided to use dormers to create 8′ ceiling heights in the bedrooms and bathroom.
Additional Dwelling Units are easier than ever to build in San Luis Obispo County under the new 2020 Building Code Cycle. Many previous obstructions, both physically and financially, have been removed or reduced. Now is the time for ADU’s.
