Long Beach’s Guest House ADU by FTR Renovation
Long Beach, CA | November 10, 2022
We converted an existing garage to one bedroom ADU separate unit. The permit processes took 6 month to RTI , construction 5 month for CofO, and the cost of construction $154k. This Long Beach ADU stands as a testament to FTR Renovation’s adaptability, attention to detail, and commitment to client satisfaction. We successfully turned a small plot into a cozy, functional living space, all while meeting regulatory demands.
