What is the expected timeframe for completing the construction of an ADU?
Usually, the comprehensive stages of custom ADU creation—ranging from design and permitting to actual construction—take around 4-6 months for preparation and 6-9 months for completion. It's noteworthy that certain counties have streamlined the process by offering pre-approved standard ADU plans (PRADU). With these pre-approved plans in place, the permitting duration can be shortened to as little as 2 months. Rest assured, the process is optimized to ensure efficiency and timely completion.
What is the price of constructing an ADU?
The total cost is influenced by numerous factors, including the specific conditions of your home/site, the type, style, and size of the addition, as well as your choice of finishing materials, among other considerations. Our primary objective extends beyond delivering an exceptional building product; it's about ensuring complete transparency and understanding throughout the entire process, right from the outset to its culmination. Following our initial discussion, we will present you with a preliminary estimate and collaborate closely to align it with your budgetary parameters. As a design-build firm, we oversee every aspect of the process - from the initial design and blueprints to the construction phase, inspections, and every detail in between. Rest assured, a dedicated project manager will stand by your side throughout the project, providing guidance and promptly addressing any inquiries you might have! Your confidence in our expertise is our utmost priority.
What is the maximum size allowed for an ADU?
The permissible size of an ADU varies depending on the county regulations, ranging from 800 square feet to 1200 square feet of habitable space. Additional areas like garages or sunrooms can be included within these square footages based on local guidelines.
What is a pre-approved ADU?
"A pre-approved ADU is a category of Detached ADU that has undergone thorough review and approval by the local jurisdiction's building or planning department. This implies that the design and specifications of the ADU have already been verified to comply with local building and zoning codes. This streamlined approval process significantly reduces potential delays, making it easier to obtain necessary permits. Opting for a pre-approved ADU can expedite the initiation of your project, ensuring a more efficient and hassle-free construction experience.
