Adding value, space to your home through ADUs

By Hawaii Renovation Posted in: BackyardExterior

As Island families grow older, so do the homes that they live in. The kupuna face the critical questions of having to accommodate growing families, the possibility of moving loved ones into care homes, and passing personal property down to the next generation. Is it time to renovate or is it time to tear down and build a new home? Since the home is the centerpiece and one of the largest investments in a family’s life, homeowners must ask these questions as time continues.

Home additions or alterations are a great way to provide the extra space for other family members, or an aging loved one needing a place to stay. They still provide personal space for them to live and to continue to thrive on their own. The City has recently passed legislation to allow Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) of 800 square feet or less on an existing residential property. These ADUs are a great way to add value to an existing property by providing much desired affordable housing. Did you know that more than 55 percent of homes in the Honolulu area were built before the year 1980? Many of these older homes were built using single-wall construction, and today are in dire need of repair and a little TLC. Perhaps, if feasible for island families, the better decision is to rebuild a new, custom-designed home.
