        As a resident of Citrus Heights (CA) and a property owner, you might be thinking about some home renovations. House renovation is becoming a more and more popular practice among property owners because a renovated house serves some specific purposes and satisfies the family members’ needs better than the one they originally obtained.

        Citrus Heights residents are facing a housing crisis now. In other words, it becomes harder to get additional living space for the children who grow up and get older, for example. That is why people came up with the idea of transformation of the existing space in a way so that there were additional living opportunities. One of the solutions for this problem is building an accessory dwelling unit (ADU).

        Now, if you are seriously considering getting an ADU in Citrus Heights (CA), we recommend you get acquainted with the services that our ADU builder, A+ Construction & Remodeling, provides.

        When you decide on what kind of accessory dwelling unit (ADU) you are interested in, attached or detached ADU versions (we will consider the types of ADU in the following sections), you us, and we develop an individual ADU project for you. This project development, in a sense, is a program with several steps.

        Let us demonstrate what kind of steps this program implies and what we, as your future contractor in Citrus Heights, will do.

        Citrus Heights ADU Builders

        The first step of our program is listening to your desires and trying to bring your ideas to life by suggesting different design options. When you are acquainted with the list of ADUs allowed here, in Citrus Heights, together with our designer, we will create a model of your future accessory dwelling unit (ADU) that you will have to confirm. Once the visualization is pre-approved, we can continue developing the ADU project.

        Pre-approved ADU plans

        The planning division papers pre-approved ADU plans (that later will become officially approved) that will serve as a navigation tool for both our team and Citrus Heights homeowners. This step of the program is important because only after you sign the plan, the actual works can begin.


        The choice of materials is probably one of the most important choices connected with creating an ADU. Feel free to choose those materials that seem to be more attractive to you and more appropriate for your exact building.

        ADU Contractor Citrus Heights

        Both us and Citrus Heights, property owners, are interested in what we call “in-law units” — those ADU options that correspond with the local laws. That is why homeowners, when creating their ADU, have to obey certain rules — the building has to comply with the ordinance. This is a specifically significant step of the entire program.

        For example, there is a specific ordinance that concerns the detached ADUs: such a unit cannot exceed 1200 square feet — it is its maximum size. As for the maximum size of the attached ADUs — they should not exceed 850 square feet or half of the primary home (whichever is greater).

        There are some requirements for the maximum height as well. In general, maximum height requirements depend on the ADU you have — either you have a detached or an attached version. To get more information, you can either search for the corresponding documents about Citrus Heights legislation on the Internet or address A+ Construction & Remodeling company for advice.

        Usually, there are parking requirements as well. For instance, there has to be an additional parking space for an additional bedroom on the territory of your property in Citrus Heights.

        But, if you choose our company, you will not have to worry about legislation — we are a responsible contractor, and we always support our customer community of Citrus Heights in this area.

        ADU Unit Construction Citrus Heights

        There are different types of ADUs in Citrus Heights, and you can choose the one that will correspond with the building permit in your individual case. Let us briefly describe the main types of ADUs.

        1. Attached ADUs

        Under the attached ADU, people usually understand those accessory dwelling units which represent some sort of a “physical enlargement” of the primary home. The primary home thus refers to the original residential properties, the general initial building where the family lives. Another logical feature of the attached accessory dwelling units is that they share one or more walls with the single-family home — sometimes, you can reach an ADU via the door without leaving the single-family home.

        1. Detached ADUs

        A detached ADU is an accessory dwelling unit that is located within the territory of the residential properties. However, it does not share common walls with the primary home. Usually, this is a new construction that is contained as a separate building.

        1. Garage conversions

        Garage conversions usually refer to those accessory dwelling units that used to be ordinary garages but then were transformed into a living space. A general rule for each garage conversion ADU is that it has to provide at least 500 square feet as the minimum lot size of traditional living space (or more).

        1. Lower level ADU

        This type of ADU means that this accessory dwelling unit is located under the ground. This is a slightly less popular option among the ADUs allowed, but it is still a solution if you need additional dwelling units.

        1. ADU above the garage

        One more option to consider is building accessory dwelling units above the garage. If you are living in your own house, the chances are that you have a garage. Think about what you have on top of it: do you use the available space smartly? You can transform the roof of your garage in Citrus Heights into a fully-equipped ADU as a complement to your primary home. Look for more information concerning the local state law or simply contact us — A+ Construction & Remodeling — we have been building accessory dwelling units in Citrus Heights for a long time, so we know how to create an “in-law unit” for sure.

        Citrus Heights ADU Construction Company

        If, at this point, you are still doubting about creating an ADU on your property in Citrus Heights, let us make things clear. There are several key reasons why you do need an ADU, and here they are:

        “Granny flat” for other relatives

        If your family is expanding, and you feel like you lack free space in your primary residence, creating an ADU will be a smart solution. Or, for instance, if you want your older relatives to live closer to you, but not in a complete 24/7 contact. These “granny flats”, referring to ADUs, will keep your relatives close enough, but not too close. This is a great option for those who especially appreciate private space.

        An ADU is usually completely equipped for a normal life — if you build it with a contractor, the service usually includes plumbing and electricity issues. It has enough free space for one or two people (depending on the size, of course) and is a great alternative to the “room upstairs” in the house.

        Extra income

        This is an obvious advantage of having an ADU — you can invite other people to live there and get money from the rent. If you live in a city with a great number of universities, this is an especially smart idea. Students usually look for such “granny flat” options to live next to the place where they study, and they are ready to live there “not for free”.

        Or, you use an ADU for the short-term rentals: invite guests to stay in the ADU for a day or a week. This strategy will work well for those who live in the so-called tourist towns, or simply in the place where people will find to take a look at, like Citrus Heights.

        That is why this is a resourceful way of using your property — to provide a “renting service” and earn money!

        Increase the price of the property in the future

        This is a long-term strategy that will work if you think of selling your property in the future. According to the research, property units with an ADU are sold at a price 30% higher than the initial price of the house. Of course, building the ADU will demand resources as well, but if you are planning to use it, it will pay off when the time of selling the property in Citrus Heights comes.

        Personal needs

        We all are alive human beings, and sometimes we need some free space to get some rest and restore our nerves. In this situation, having an ADU might be salvation. When you feel that you do not want to contact anybody, that you want to spend a couple of hours in a quiet place, you can do it in the ADU. In a sense, you can use your private property to provide yourself with a relaxation service!


        In the modern world, getting remote work is becoming a more and more frequent case. This means that you need some private space to contact your colleagues via calls and go about your duties without getting disturbed. Use your property smartly — build the ADU and use it as an office. Since the majority of ADU options are equipped with plumbing and electricity for the entire day, you might not even need to leave this place.

        General Information

        History. During the mid-16th to mid-19th centuries its territory was limited to a narrow coastal strip. With the Gold rush of 1849 the Californian population sharply increased and the territory saw a steady development ever since. From 1950 to the end of the millennium present-day Citrus Heights remained a part of Sacramento County`s Central Township in the state of California. In 1997 the city was finally incorporated after a decades-long struggle with the County Board of Supervisors.

        Climate. Citrus Height enjoys dry and hot summers with average temperature of 76° Fahrenheit and almost no rains during the three months of June, July and August.

      • Frequently Asked Questions

        Is there a minimum size for an ADU in California?

        Private properties in every city of CA are regulated by special legislation. In other words, local residents cannot simply expand their housing abilities by building whatever they want. These laws also cover the sizes of the ADU. There is a general rule that a simple accessory dwelling unit cannot be less than 150 square feet. Besides, there are rules about ADU concerning its maximum size, fire safety, and many other issues.

        Can I build an ADU on my property in California?

        All people of CA in each city who have private immovable property can improve their housing conditions by expanding these pieces of property — in other words, by creating an accessory dwelling unit (ADU). To do this, we recommend you collect information about your primary home (to track the restrictions of the future ADU) and contact the local contractor. The firm will develop a program and will provide you with more information about the peculiarities of ADU building.

        Do you need a permit for Adu in California?

        If you are planning to build an ADU on your property, you will need a permit to do it in every city of CA. If you are new in housing affairs, contact a professional, a contractor that will provide you with all necessary information on the topic. The majority of the companies help their customers get all required permits when they want to “expand” their property via ADU. For example, this service is provided by A+ Construction & Remodeling.

        How much value does an Adu add in California?

        The phenomenon of ADU is not a new one, so people have had the time to study it. The research demonstrates an overall increase in price for the property with an ADU of approximately 30% of the initial price. Of course, the statistics might slightly vary depending on the city, but developing an ADU project on your private property will increase its price when selling for sure.
