You must have heard the saying, ‘East or west, home is best.’ But what if your living space in beautiful El Dorado County became too confining for an extended family, or too cramped for all the friends you’ve recently made and want to temporarily house? Of course, if your budget and credit history allows it, you can sell your house and buy a new, bigger one.
However, not every property owner in Auburn Lake Trails can afford it right away. Moreover, building such large and comprehensive new structures as houses is not only costly but time-consuming. Do you need extra space right now and can’t spend several months (or even years) on new construction because you need to live somewhere all this time? Then stay with us!
If this situation sounds familiar, you might get interested in ADUs. ADUs can be located on the same piece of land as the main house, for instance, in your backyard. Learn about types of ADUs, their advantages, and their peculiarities, and then, when you’re ready, contact a professional ADU builder – A+ Construction & Remodeling!
When building a house, special knowledge is simply necessary. If, with a cursory glance at things, it seems that it is enough to watch a few tutorial videos on YouTube, with further use of the house, it often becomes clear that things, unfortunately, went south.
Is it possible to start building a house in December, or is it better to wait until summer? Is an ADU even permitted in that particular state or city? How far should it be located from the highway? And what materials should I use so that everything doesn’t fall apart after six months? All these questions and many more you can ask A+ specialists with many years of experience under their belt.
Their scope of work stretches for miles from east to west and from north to south in California. A+ Construction & Remodeling is an ADU building company with a long history of helping homeowners bring their unique projects into existence.
A+ Construction & Remodeling is ready to offer you a team of experts to create a solid, neat, and presentable ADU you will be proud of! Working with A+ can bring the following advantages to your property:
All in all, A+ Construction & Remodeling offers ADU construction at all stages, starting with the initial consultation, calculating the budget, and ending with permit acquisition.
So, what is an ADU? In contrast to the owner-occupied house, an ADU is a resident’s new construction on the same plot as the main house. In other words, it is a small house with a miniature bedroom (one or more bedrooms, depending on the ADU size), bathroom, kitchen, and living room zones.
There are ADUs that are built from scratch and converted ADUs. The second type includes garage and basement conversions. The pros are that you can utilize the unused garage or basement space. No longer have a car to park? Then convert your garage into a living space with all the necessary amenities without incurring too many extension costs, as the carcass is already here. All you need to do is change the gate to a wall, install windows and doors, and carry out work on the electrical wiring and plumbing.
Yet, a more popular ADU classification is based on the way an ADU is constructed. All ADUs are divided into:
This option is convenient for those residents who don’t mind having a shared wall with their additional dwelling unit. An attached ADU is great for easy access if your family has been replenished with a new member, your adult child has married, or you need to move a relative closer to yourself.
A notable feature of this ADU type is that it’s a stand-alone house with no adjacent wall to the primary house. A tiny house for a downsized life that is just a few seconds’ walk from the main house can serve as a guest house, retreat house, workshop, or private shelter to hide from overly curious relatives.
Unlike the other two types, a junior ADU is distinguished by its size rather than its configuration or access to the primary building. Moreover, they must be converted rather than built. An ADU has such a name because it has very small dimensions – less than 500 sq. ft. Since when building an ADU, you pay mainly for square footage, this option may be a lifesaver for those who are in desperate need of extra space but don’t have much in their savings account.
Have ADU projects already outlined themselves in your mind? If your answer is ‘yes,’ please consult the employees from A+ Construction & Remodeling office! We will pick an architect, a designer, and a team of professional builders to make your plans come true.
Summarizing all of the above, it can be argued that ADU buildings can serve several main purposes:
ADUs are perfect for hospitable Auburn Lake Trails residents who like to invite their buddies from other cities and states for a few days. Don’t want to crowd into one house? An ADU has all the amenities for a comfortable guest’s life: a bedroom, a bathroom, a kitchen, and, typically, a living room!
Not all people who apply for the services of building an ADU know that sometimes these small houses are called ‘granny flats.’ It gets difficult to pay a visit to elderly relatives if you live too far from each other. Not that the opportunity to build an additional house was some kind of new milestone in the development of construction, because people in earlier centuries thought of it too. It is easy to honor your dear ones with a joint walk in the park if what separates you is just a few steps.
While a young family is saving up for their own house, they still need personal space. Additionally, if you care to create a small house for temporary purposes, this investment will not be wasted! Since the young finally leave the nest, you will be able to find for your ADU one of the following uses.
Planning your finances is an unavoidable part of modern life. But where should you start your search for a source of passive income? Building an ADU on your property can also help you with this task! The rent amount varies depending on the city, the availability of colleges and other popular institutions, and the ADU’s size. But in general, a stable rent from one or more tenants will help not only to recoup your expenses for an ADU construction but also to bring additional earnings to your piggy bank.
Consult with a realtor if you need it, but any ADU significantly increases the cost of your property. If the profitable sale of houses is what you do, or if you just want to gain as much from your property as possible, you may be interested in building an Auburn Lake Trails ADU first.
As ADUs are so versatile, you have an opportunity to make your space work your way. Thus, one can build an ADU for personal use, for the family’s convenience, or as a business investment. Despite an ADU being a full-fledged living space with all the amenities, which means it is suitable to live in, you can utilize the new square footage to make a home office, a hobby house, a workshop, a gym, etc. Anyways, ASUs are way cheaper than building a new house or buying an apartment, which makes them a great means of affordable housing.
If you’re looking for a professional ADU building company, the first thing you should pay attention to is their experience in the field. Qualifications proven by licenses, certificates, and also samples of the job done – A+ Construction & Remodeling has it all!
To start your project with A+ Construction & Remodeling, you can:
When building an ADU, it’s necessary to follow the norms of local construction. Thus, in Auburn Lake Trails, detached, attached, and junior ADUs are permitted, the first too – either built or converted, the last one – converted only. A family may have one ADU if the lot is not owner-occupied. And two, if it is. The ADU size cannot exceed 850 sq. ft. for a one-bed ADU and 1000 sq. ft. for a two-bed ADU.
Is your budget strongly restricted? It’s still not a problem. By picking a prefabricated unit, you avoid involving architects, designers, and engineers, which reduces the final sum. Prefab ADUs are almost the same ADUs but ready, typified, and standardized. Their advantage is a significantly reduced price (up to three times less) and accelerated construction time. Since almost everything is ready, all it takes is to assemble.
ADUs are a comfortable way to downsize. ADUs are versatile and can be tailored to any need. And finally, ADUs are cheap and affordable. Once you have all the information at your disposal, it remains only to make a decision!
Become an ADU owner with the assistance of qualified professionals from A+ and make a profitable contribution to your future!
A single-family lot may have up to one detached and one junior ADU if the single-family home is already built on this piece of land. If it’s not owner-occupied, then only one ADU is allowed.
According to Auburn Lake Trails law, you can build an ordinary ADU that does not exceed 1000 sq. ft and a junior ADU that does not exceed 500 sq. ft. However, it also can’t be less than 150 sq. ft.
The cost of the ADU is calculated based on the square footage, the quality of materials, and human labor. For instance, a JADU will be cheaper than an ordinary ADU. But, generally, the price falls in a range between $80,000 and $300,000.
