Convenience & Money Savings

As rents and housing prices skyrocket across the country, casitas have become a popular solution for families to give elderly parents and adult children a place to call their own. Retirees, artists, and entrepreneurs have found other creative ways to make use of these spaces.

So Much More Than A Guests House

When people hear the term “guest house,” they might get the impression that if they aren’t frequent entertainers or don’t often have overnight guests, there’s no reason for them to build a guest house. Families may also wonder if the casita will be left empty when their adult child or elderly parent no longer needs it.

The internet has plenty of information on renting out your casita for additional income. Putting a guest house up for rent can act as a great introduction to being a landlord. The real beauty of custom casitas is that they can be tailored to fit your lifestyle and how you want to use the building.

Here are five more reasons to consider adding a guest house:

  • Use it as an office or studio when guests aren’t staying there.
  • Kids can have their own play space away from the adults.
  • Adults can have a peaceful space for relaxation or meditation.
  • Move into the casita as your retirement home while other family members live in the primary house.
  • Increase the value of your property.

We Make Building A Casita Easier

The first thing you should do before building a casita is to familiarize yourself with California ADU (Accessory Dwelling Unit) laws and local building codes to make sure what you’re building is legal.

Hiring a casita builder, like Cypress Design & Build, can simplify this part of the process. We already know what to include, what to avoid, and what permits are required.
