Good news! California law now permits the conversion of garages into habitable living space. With the need for affordable and safe housing on the rise, lawmakers viewed garage conversion as a viable solution. While this can be a bonus for property owners and tenants alike, it is essential that the space be habitable and safe. The space may be classified as a part of the existing dwelling, or with separate entry and utilities, it may be an accessory dwelling. Either way, proper permits are required, and even though state law allows such conversions, local building codes must be met as well. In general, the space must have adequate ventilation, windows, heating, and electricity. It must be free from pests and mold. There are other safety considerations as well, such as no gas heater in the sleeping space and no garage opening to the sleeping space.
No matter what you want to do with your garage space, Gozen construction can ensure that you start off right, with the right permits and finish with a space that your family or your tenant will be happy to call “home!”
Need more space? Perhaps your family is growing, or maybe you just want more room for entertaining or working from home. An addition to your existing Glendale home can be the perfect solution. With prices in Southern California on the rise, this is often more feasible than a new home, and it can definitely increase the value of your home.
If you have sufficient land, then additions may take the form of one or more rooms, adjoining your home’s current footprint. Or, you can do as many Southern California homeowners have done and add a story on top of your existing home.
Either way, an addition must meet housing code regulations and must not jeopardize the structural integrity of your house. At Gozen Construction we rely on our architectural and engineering experience to get the job safely and within your budget.

- Non-ductile retrofitting refers to older, brittle concrete buildings that need to be reinforced.
