About Cupertino

A prefab accessory dwelling unit (ADU) is a separate structure from your house or multi-family building that has space for at least one person to live or work and includes a kitchen and bathroom. Other names for ADUs include granny flats, guest houses, or tiny homes. Abodu offers a diverse range of customizable finishes and floor plans to suit any design aesthetic of your Beverly Hills property.

Whether you want to boost your income with a rental, comfortably host family during the holidays, or build a creative studio, an ADU provides additional living space to your primary residence. Abodu has prefab ADU options for any property configuration without the drawn-out hassle of new construction.

What are the benefits of having an ADU?

Adding an ADU or junior ADU to your property has many different benefits. You’ll have a greater capacity for hosting friends and family without putting stress on your current bathrooms or guest rooms. You can earn passive income and contribute to the current effort across California to increase affordable housing. In fact, adding more affordable housing is such a priority for California that they’ve reduced friction in building and permitting ADUs.

If you’re a working creative who is part of the star-studded list of Beverly Hills residents, an ADU can serve as a fresh new art studio or co-working space. There’s also the opportunity to host elderly family members who may not be comfortable living alone, but don’t want to live in a long-term care facility. A prefab ADU gives older individuals the independent lifestyle they want with the comfort and safety of knowing support is just across the yard.

Finally, a prefab ADU is a simple way to increase your real estate value—up to 30% depending on your current home’s square feet and the square footage of the intended ADU—making this a cost-effective investment that pays for itself over time.

Building Permits

How do I get an ADU permit in Beverly Hills?

If you’re interested in building an ADU on your Beverly Hills property, contact the Beverly Hills City Council for more information. You should consider hiring a full-service ADU home-building company that can handle the permitting and construction process for you.

Many ADUs are energy-efficient and environmentally friendly, so they shouldn’t significantly raise your utilities bill.

FAQs: Prefab ADUs in Beverly Hills

The short answer is yes, you can build an on-site ADU in Beverly Hills with the correct permits. The minimum requirement is that an existing single-family home or multi-unit dwelling, such as a duplex, triple, or condo building, must be on the lot.

All ADUs must be at least 150 square feet and detached ADUs may not exceed 1,000 square feet, depending on the lot size. All ADUs and junior ADUs may not exceed 16 feet in maximum height. They must be at least 4 feet back from the side and rear lot lines, but this requirement may change depending on whether you are north or south of Santa Monica Boulevard. This is because Los Angeles surrounds Beverly Hills and has different city building requirements.

Note that rules, regulations, and zoning for ADUs may differ from junior ADUs, and there are separate processes for building an ADU with a single-family versus a multi-unit dwelling. For example, an ADU built on a property with a single-family home requires that the owner lives there in some capacity. In contrast, this requirement does not apply to junior ADUs.

You can apply with the City of Beverly Hills and the State of California. A professional ADU building company can help with the permitting process if you are unsure.

Construction timelines will vary and are dependent on the size and complexity of the ADU. Prefab ADUs come ready-made with various options for customization and will be ready on a considerably shorter timeline than new construction units.
