What is the reason people are looking for ADU floor plans 1200sf? Why people build 1200 sf ADUs? What is magical about this number?

1200 sf is the biggest square footage for an ADU in California. That is, unless you have a huge barn in the backyard, then you can convert the barn into an ADU even if it is 3000sf.

No barn? 1200sf it is. To make the investment work in this high price construction market, you need to maximize the size to minimize the cost per square foot. The smaller the ADU, the bigger the price per square foot. You are spreading fixed costs like utility connections, meter upgrades, solar panels on a smaller square footage. This is why we advice to maximize the size to whatever will make sense on the property and whatever you can afford. You only build an ADU once.

The price tag for a new accessory dwelling unit often seems high – additional burden on bigger ADUs: they  are subject to impact fees. Remember to compare it to buying a new condo.

Extra bonus: you can dedicate some space for a home office

If you are working mostly from home you need additional space for work. The extra room helps you separate your work and family lives.

The ADU floor plans 1200sf have  enough space to  accommodate most demanding aging in place features for your aging parents or in-laws

The pandemic has brought in a sense of insecurity in the minds of all. This is more so in the minds of the people close to retirement age. You may have to accommodate your aged parents or in-laws who want to have you near them. If you have space in the backyard, this is a great investment into your real estate and into your family’s piece of mind.
