Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU)

(ADU) Granny Flats in Los Angeles

Snow Construction is your premier source for Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU) or "Granny Flats" in Los Angeles. We are a versatile construction company that helps our clients obtain their dream homes at an affordable price.

In January of 2017, a new California state law took effect that encourages homeowners to build "Granny Flats" or ADU's. These housing units can also go by several different names: backyard homes, garage apartments, or their formal name, Accessory Dwelling Units.

Thinking about expanding space in your home for an elderly relative, extra income or a grown child who moved back home? Then an ADU is your answer!

Planning, design and lay-out

We will start with planning, design and layout so you as the homeowner can decide if it is possible to build an ADU on your property. This will help provide preliminary answers to key questions and show you the steps the City will require, and what the design and what construction of an ADU will entail.


How much space will I need for parking?

Many lots already accommodate two parking spaces in a garage or carport. When you add an ADU, you may need to fit one extra parking space on your lot. If an additional space is required, the space may be covered or uncovered.

You may not need additional parking if:

  1. The ADU is located within one-half mile of public transit.
  2. ADU is located within an architecturally and historically significant district.
  3. The ADU is part of the existing primary residence or an existing accessory structure.
  4. On-street parking permits are required, but not offered to occupant of the ADU.
  5. There is a car-share vehicle located within one block of the ADU.

These are the five current parking exemptions as of July 2017, but parking requirements may change. We can help check with the Dept. of City Planning for current requirements upon starting your ADU Project!

The quality of the work is impeccable, all of his team is also amazing and personable. They did a really great job and I will definitely be contacting Billy when we need some more work done. I literally cannot stress how much of a diamond in the rough / needle in a haystack this guy is! Great Job Billy!

We hired Billy after meeting with 4 contractors because he was prompt, professional, efficient and had a great attitude and fairly priced.  I thought it was all too good to be true, but after completing the work exactly on time and perfectly done,  I realize that he is truly the best in the industry.  We have now recommended him and his guys to many friends and hope to use him again when we need more work done.  He was a complete pleasure to work with and changed my perception that all general contractors were difficult to work with.  Highly recommend him!

I'm always very skeptical about construction people and realtors in general. It's the car salesman personality that gets me. You feel like you need a shower after having a meeting with them. I'm really happy I met Billy. He was referred to me by a friend of mine. He is so down to earth and easy to talk too. I'm Australian, I don't like any shady behavior, Billy was upfront about what we needed to do, gave us ideas, quotes on different ways we could get the job done. We are on a budget so we chose the least expensive option for our Bathroom in our town home. Maybe next time we'll go all out on the higher end tile, but for now we love it and I wouldn't change a thing. I am so happy with the results! I will be using Billy for any upcoming needs, we are planning to buy a home next year and he will be the first person I call.
