As property values continue to rise and living spaces become smaller, homeowners are seeking ways to maximize their property’s potential. Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) have become a popular solution in recent years, providing additional living space for family members and guests and creating extra income through rental activities. However, designing and building an ADU can be a complex and challenging process. That’s where Virtual Reality (VR) comes in.

VR also enables homeowners to identify any design issues or challenges that may arise during construction, such as inadequate lighting, limited storage, or awkward layouts, before they become costly and time-consuming problems. By using VR technology, homeowners can streamline the ADU design process and create a more efficient and effective construction plan.

Virtual Reality and Accessory Dwelling Units

What is Virtual Reality?

Virtual Reality (VR) is a technology tool that creates an immersive experience for the user in a digital environment through the use of a specialized headset.

The VR captures the users’ movements through sensors, allowing them to interact with the virtual space.

What are Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs)?

ADUs, also known as granny flats, guest houses, or backyard cottages, are self-contained living units that can be attached or detached from the main house. The best part is that their flexibility allows homeowners to tailor their ADU to their needs and budget.

Here are some of their benefits:

  • Additional living space: ADUs are a great way to add extra living space to a property without moving or adding onto the main house. They can be customized to fit the specific needs of homeowners and provide privacy and independence for both the main house and the ADU occupants.

  • Increased property value: Adding an ADU can increase the square footage of livable space, increasing the property’s overall value. This is especially true in areas where the cost of living space is high and there is a high demand for housing.
  • Rental income: Probably the most popular reason homeowners choose to construct ADUs. By adding a granny flat, property owners get to generate a second source of income by renting out the space. This has been proven to be such a great way to have that extra cash that people even construct a second Accessory Dwelling Unit after realizing how promising these units are.

How Virtual Reality (VR) Can Help You Design Your ADU

VR technology has revolutionized the way we design and build homes. This innovative technology allows us to create 3D models of homes and buildings that can be viewed digitally. By applying this technology, it’s easier to design and build ADUs.

VR can help you design your ADU by providing a realistic visual representation of the unit’s appearance before it is built. This technology makes it easier for homeowners to develop the project by choosing suitable materials, colors, layouts, etc. It can also help identify potential design flaws before they become a problem, saving time and money in the long run.

In addition to visualizing your ADU design, VR technology can help you customize your space to fit your needs! For example, if you plan to rent out your ADU, VR can help you design a space attractive to potential renters; or if you plan to use your unit as a home office, VR can help you create a functional space caters to your needs.

At Multitaskr, we take full advantage of this tool, and our clients love how they walk through their projects without waiting for them to come to reality.
