Got a question? We've got an answer for that.

We understand you may have questions about LIM Living, our mission, and our products. Here are some of the most commonly asked questions we receive, along with our answers. If you don't see an answer to your question, please don't hesitate to reach out to us!

Do I need a permit to put a LIM Living ADU in my backyard?

In most cases, a building permit is required for installing our Quartz ADU. To get the precise details for your specific installation, we recommend reaching out to your city or county's building department. They can provide you with all the information you need regarding whether a permit is necessary for your project.

Our team is here to support you throughout the process, so feel free to contact us if you have any questions or need assistance.

Can I build this myself?

Absolutely! We've specifically designed and engineered our units to be user-friendly, allowing even the handy DIYer with basic construction knowledge to assemble them. It's like a real-life Lego home project that you can undertake with the help of a couple of friends.

To make the process even smoother, we provide a detailed and easy-to-follow step-by-step instruction manual. For any more complex parts of the installation, we offer video links to guide you through the process—think of it as an improved version of an Ikea project, complete with clear instructions and helpful videos. Learn more about the assembly process here.

We understand that you might have questions or need additional support during the DIY process, and we're here to assist you. You can contact us directly by emailing:

Is there a warranty?

Absolutely! We stand behind the quality and craftsmanship of our accessory units, and to ensure your peace of mind, we offer a comprehensive warranty for all of our ADUs.

With every purchase, you'll receive a 5-year warranty that covers materials, workmanship, and structural aspects of the units. Your satisfaction and confidence in our products are of utmost importance to us, and our warranty reflects our commitment to delivering a reliable and durable solution for your backyard needs.

For more detailed information about the warranty coverage, visit our Warranty page for all the details. Rest assured, with our warranty in place, you can enjoy your LIM Living ADU knowing that we have you fully covered.

How fast can the Quartz be assembled?

Our Quartz ADU can be assembled in a remarkably short time frame! When managed by a skilled 3-person team, you can expect the Studio to be fully assembled in about 14 days or even less. It's impressive how efficiently our units come together, allowing you to enjoy your new space in no time.

Whether you're planning to do the assembly yourself or working with a team of contractors, our Quartz ADU is designed for a smooth and swift installation process. If you have any questions or need support during the assembly, feel free to contact us directly by emailing:

What types of foundations are the most suitable for the Quartz studio unit?

For our units, a pier foundation in the form of precast concrete footings is the most ideal choice. It allows you to place the unit on top of leveled soil or gravel while ensuring the proper clearance underneath. With precast concrete footings, there's no need to deal with the hassle of mixing and pouring concrete, making the installation process faster and more straightforward.

While our models can also be installed on a concrete slab, it would require several modifications to accommodate the anchoring of the foundation beams, provide an 18" crawl space beneath the foundations, and allow space for water pipes, sewage pipes, and electrical hookups.

Can the Quartz be increased in size?

At the moment, the Quartz ADU cannot be increased in size. However, we offer the 528 sqft Argon unit which can be configured for ADA accessibility.

In the meantime, if you have any specific requirements or ideas in mind, we'd love to hear from you. Your feedback is invaluable to us as we continue to innovate and provide the best possible solutions for our customers. Contact us here.

Can my ADU be moved from one location to another?

While it is possible to deconstruct and move any LIM Living ADU, it's important to note that our units are designed to be fixed to a permanent foundation for added stability and resilience against environmental factors like earthquakes and strong winds.

If you choose to relocate the unit from its original location, we must inform you that doing so may void the warranty. The reason is that we cannot guarantee the unit has been properly disassembled, packaged, and transported without any potential damage.

Maintaining the unit in its original location ensures its long-term structural integrity and stability. Moving it to a new location may pose unforeseen challenges and could compromise its stability, leading to potential issues in the future.

Our priority is to ensure your satisfaction and the unit's performance, so we recommend keeping it in its original position to preserve its warranty and reliability. If you have any further questions or concerns about relocation or warranty coverage, please feel free to contact us. We're here to assist you in making the best decisions for your unit's longevity and performance.

Are there any additional costs to putting a LIM Living Quartz ADU in my backyard?

Yes, there are additional costs outside of the purchase price of the Quartz. Our upfront pricing does not include any site work (such as utility connections, trenching, demolition, ground leveling, and foundation prep) and the cost of sales tax and permit fees.

Are there any upgrades available?

Not at this time. Rest assured, your Quartz ADU comes with everything needed to live in your unit.

Do you offer financing?

While we don't provide direct financing for our ADUs, there are plenty of financial institutions that offer "home improvement" loans or "personal" loans with competitive interest rates, making it easier for you to finance your ADU project.

One such option you can explore is LightStream, where you can learn more about their home improvement loans designed to help you finance any home improvement project at a low rate.

We understand that financing can be an essential aspect of your ADU journey, and we want to make sure you have access to a range of options that suit your financial needs. Feel free to explore the various financing choices available, and if you have any questions or need assistance, don't hesitate to contact us.

Building with integrity.

At LIM Living, we want you to have confidence in your investment. That's why we're proud to hold the certifications that guarantee our ADUs are built to code and meet California's rigorous standards for structure, energy efficiency, and sustainability. When you choose LIM Living, you can trust in our commitment to quality and compliance.
