Pfeifer Residence in Oceanside, CA   

Peifer | Garage Conversion Oceanside, CA

The Peifers were very proud of their daughter when she graduated from college. They encouraged her to live at home while she worked her first job so she could get on her feet financially. The entire family realized that everyone would be happier with a little privacy. So they contracted Ritz ADU Design Build for their garage remodel. They wanted to construct a small detached unit so their Grad could live at home, but not in the home.

This type of garage conversion is often called a granny flat, ADU, in-law-suite, studios or guest quarters. These garage conversions are typically located on top of a garage, as an extension in the back yard, or as a connector between a home and detached garage, or stand alone separate unit. This type of Garage Remodel will maximize a family’s living space. Young adults appreciate them as an opportunity to save some money - plus, their parents' property value increases and the unit can become a rental when their Grad moves on.

Couple and Architect

San Diego County does not allow Homeowners to build every type of ADU in every neighborhood in San Diego. Many of our clients have come to us after they learned that their plans could not be built. Ritz ADU Design Build will fully research the permitting rules in your neighborhood before we even begin the design phase. Ritz ADU Design Build has extensive experience in walking our designs through the approval process.

REpurpose Your Garage

Garage Conversions serve many functions. We have designed ADU Floor Plans for many San Diego Homeowners. We build ADUs that are used as backyard rentals, granny flats, and backyard offices. Plus, we are also considered one of the best Garage Builders in San Diego. We build garage conversions that serve as over the garage apartments and we can even convert your garage to a room or a gym. We build to suit your needs. It's fun to explore the possibilities with our team - call us today!




We provide these pre-approved floorplans as a baseline, or spring board for conversation - just a starting point. While floorplans certainly help you to identify your most basic needs, they are frequently modified due to access to utilities, the actual space available to build on, views, and privacy issues. We encourage you to contact our team to set up a time to explore your needs. We will design the right ADU floorplan for YOUR property and YOUR needs.
