How ADUs enhance homeowners’ properties

By Hawaii Renovation Posted in: InteriorKitchen

HR-111515-HK-CONSTRUCTION-2HK Construction is readily available as a design-build company to take a customer’s concept and turn that idea into an enjoyable living space crafted to last for generations to come.

For more than 40 years, HK Construction has kept local families in mind as the fourth-generation family business incorporates quality products and the talents of experienced designers and builders throughout each project.

Recently, the City and County of Honolulu passed a law that allows Oahu homeowners to build an accessory dwelling unit (ADU) on their property if they meet certain criteria. An ADU is a simple concept allowing for a second small dwelling to be built on the same property (attached or unattached) to a single-family home.

Here in Hawaii, homeowners who choose to add on to their property can do so via the new law. ADUs provide homeowners with opportunities to gain income and create additional property value while also helping to quell the demand for housing and rental units in Hawaii.

HK Construction provides everything a homeowner needs, from concept to completion, and as your partner, the firm will provide the design and functionality that best suits one’s lifestyle and property needs. Though many people buy houses and live in them for decades, their actual needs change over time. Often, adult children return home or aging parents come to live with family. However, the way homes are currently built does not reflect those changing needs.

The benefi ts gained by homeowners after adding an ADU range from generating supplemental income to providing extra space for family to live in and adding value to the overall property. ADUs also provide an alternative means of expanding the range of dwellings available in a tight housing market.

A positive first step in learning about the home building process and determining what can be done to enhance one’s existing home is to attend one of HK Construction’s home building seminars. Questions will be answered at that time and interested parties also may set up a free on-site assessment.

HK Construction is holding three seminars this week: Thursday, Nov. 19 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Pearl Countr Club; Friday, Nov. 20 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Blaisdell Center; and Saturday, Nov. 21 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the American Financial Services Center in Kahala. Call 841-1800 or 220-4714 for reservations or to get more information on upcoming seminars.
