FAQ Block

Timeline and Process

An Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) is a secondary housing unit on a single-family residential lot. It can be attached or detached from the main residence and includes amenities such as a kitchen, bathroom, and sleeping area.

ADUs provide additional living space for family members, potential rental income, increased property value, and the opportunity to accommodate guests or caregivers.

ADUs can be detached (a separate structure), attached (an addition to the main house), or converted from existing spaces like garages, basements, or attics.

Yes, ADUs can serve as home offices, studios, guest houses, or recreational spaces, depending on your needs and local zoning regulations.

Timeline and Process

Yes, building an ADU requires obtaining the necessary permits from your local building authority. The process includes submitting detailed plans and ensuring compliance with zoning regulations and building codes.

Zoning regulations vary by location but typically include requirements related to lot size, setbacks, height restrictions, parking, and occupancy limits. We can help you navigate these regulations.

Yes, ADUs must meet local building codes, which include standards for safety, habitability, and energy efficiency. We ensure that all our ADU projects comply with these codes.

Yes, size restrictions vary by location but typically range from 400 to 1,200 square feet. Local zoning laws will dictate the maximum allowable size for an ADU on your property.

Timeline and Process

The cost of building an ADU varies depending on the size, design, materials, and site conditions. On average, costs can range from $100,000 to $300,000 or more.

Yes, financing options are available, including home equity loans, construction loans, and refinancing. We can recommend lenders who specialize in ADU financing.

Timeline and Process

The timeline for building an ADU can vary, but it typically takes about 6-12 months from initial planning to final construction, depending on the complexity of the project and permitting process.

Contact us to schedule a consultation. We’ll discuss your goals, evaluate your property, and guide you through the design, permitting, and construction process.

Timeline and Process

Yes, ADUs can be customized to fit your specific needs and preferences. We offer a range of design options and can work with you to create a functional and aesthetically pleasing space.

Prefab ADUs are typically quicker to construct and may be more cost-effective. Custom-built ADUs offer more design flexibility and can be tailored to fit unique site conditions and personal preferences.

Timeline and Process

In many areas, ADUs can be rented out for additional income. However, there may be local regulations regarding rental duration and occupancy. It’s important to check with your local authorities.

Timeline and Process

ADUs require connections to utilities such as water, sewer, electricity, and gas. Depending on the design and location, these utilities may be shared with the main house or have separate connections.

Like any home, an ADU requires regular maintenance such as cleaning, inspecting systems (plumbing, electrical, HVAC), and addressing any wear and tear. We provide maintenance guidelines upon project completion.

Timeline and Process

Site preparation includes assessing the property, preparing the foundation, and ensuring proper drainage and utility connections. We manage all aspects of site preparation to ensure a smooth construction process.

We adhere to strict quality control measures, including using high-quality materials, employing experienced tradespeople, and conducting regular inspections throughout the construction process.

Timeline and Process

Consider factors such as your budget, the intended use of the ADU, zoning regulations, impact on property value, and potential rental income. We can help you evaluate these considerations to make informed decisions.
