If you are seriously thinking of remodeling your house, consider this article to be a sign to start! Each homeowner in every city of the United States has ever had plans for renovations. However, only a few homeowners usually decide to act. Hiring an ADU builder or contractor can help turn your renovation plans into a reality.

Fair Oaks ADU Builders

If now you have a feeling that you do not use all of your property efficiently, this text will be especially useful for you. Because even if you think that all of your lands are used, the chances are that it is actually not.

Have you ever heard about such a thing as ADU? ADU stands for the accessory dwelling unit: in simple words, it is an additional dwelling unit, a place where one can live separately from the primary house. Usually, this building is equipped with everything a person might need to live a comfortable life, including plumbing and electricity.

Building accessory dwelling units is not a simple task; in other words, a person with little experience can hardly develop an ADU project today. Or, even if the project is developed, a few beginners can build a proper building without the help of contractors and proper inspections.

That is why if you want to end up with a sturdy accessory dwelling unit (ADU), we strongly recommend you address professionals — for a slightly higher cost, and you will receive a 100% satisfactory result. One of the companies that you can contact in every city in Sacramento county is A+ Construction & Remodeling.

Our company has been creating additional dwelling units for years now. Only for the past three years have we developed numerous projects of detached and attached ADUs in conformity with the state law.

ADU Contractor Fair Oaks

Addressing A+ Construction & Remodeling primarily means the highest quality of the job done. Our workers have developed multiple plans of ADU versions; that is why we can surely call them masters of their craft. Now, if you are wondering what exactly these plans include, let us briefly introduce the process to you.

  • ADU design

Creating the ADU design is the first and one of the most important steps in this housing issue. Each contractor will tell you that a proper design and visualization are almost half of the work when building an ADU.

Our designers listen to the desires of the homeowners in Sacramento carefully and then, based on these stories, provide a number of possible solutions. We understand that in the neighborhood, each resident wants to stick to the individual style; that is why our service aims at an individual approach.

A visualization of the housing unit will allow residents to understand the locations of such places as bedrooms or cooking spaces. Also, this step of the plan will help customers realize the approximate valuation of the future ADU.

  • Creating plans

Plans are drawings by engineers that have to be done before the building process begins. Our team of professionals prepares the plans on their own, and then, when users provide their permits, the building itself starts — this allows avoiding potential trouble when works have already started.

  • Choosing materials

The choice of materials is also significant because it defines the costs and timing of the works. If you want your property to serve you long, you should not skimp on the materials. High-quality ones usually guarantee long service.

We always help users choose those materials that fit their future accessory dwelling units best. As responsible contractors, we explain the importance of the material for the ADU. Cheaper options might be rather disappointing, but you do not always have to spend thousands of dollars — some reliable manufacturers provide secure materials that do not cost too much.

  • Getting building permits

One more responsibility of our company is to take care of the building permits for city residents. We have been practicing this procedure for years, and we know for sure what kind of housing permissions you need depending on the ADU.

You probably know that there are specific regulations, a state law that covers building issues. When it comes to accessory dwelling units, they are not an exception.

For example, according to state law, an accessory dwelling unit should have a maximum lot size of 800 sq. ft. in every city of California. As for the minimum lot size — the residential property will not be subject to any minimum size for the accessory dwelling unit (ADU) by ordinance.

The state law also restricts the height of the additional dwelling units: 16 feet max. Higher options are prohibited.

There are some other regulations concerning such a unit, and we are ready to help residents of Sacramento to deal with them.

ADU Unit Construction Fair Oaks

In Sacramento, you can meet quite different types of ADU. Each owner chooses the unit that one can afford and the unit that will satisfy the owner’s needs. Let us consider the main types of ADU.

  • Attached ADU

The attached unit is the one that shares a common wall with the primary residence. Usually, you can reach the ADU without going outside the main house.

  • Detached ADU

A detached unit, on the contrary, is one that does not share common walls with the primary residence. This is a separate building, and it still has the main issues for a comfortable life, including plumbing and electricity.

  • Garage conversion

This is the least expensive unit that is definitely worth financing. It is created from the garage — an old garage must be transformed into a convenient place of living. Despite the fact that these accessory dwelling units require fewer costs, they still need plans to be brought to life.

  • Above garage ADU

Continuing with the line of garages, you can use your garage roof effectively and create an ADU here. Such a “granny flat” is worth financing for a simple reason — it does not require additional square meters on your initial property. You create a project on the roof of the garage — in a sense, apply usable free space — and get additional living spaces.

  • Lower level ADU

One more ADU option is specific: you can create additional living space under the ground. You should keep in mind that your housing opportunities have to comply with the requirements of this kind of project. Proper safety has to be insured — building such an ADU is a rather complicated process, so you should definitely address professionals.

Fair Oaks ADU Construction Company

Speaking of the professionals, our A+ Construction & Remodeling company is here to help. We will comply with your needs and develop a “suite” that will suit you perfectly. There are some key reasons why financing our services is the smart decision:

  • Saving time

Since you will not have to spend time preparing a plan or creating the ADU from scratch, you will receive additional free time while the work is in progress.

  • Saving nerves

The entire responsibility for the work lies on our shoulders — you do not have to worry about anything at all. We allow you to be free from concerns while the work is being done on the street.

  • Saving money

The work will be done by professionals who know exactly how much time and materials you need for a perfect result. We do not make mistakes; that is why the costs of the units will be fewer than if they were done by beginners in the field.

  • Expertise

As professionals who had a chance to work in different cities and different communities, we gained enough experience to share it with you and create a perfect ADU. We adopted numerous technologies of performance, that is why your work will be done in the shortest time and in the best way possible.

General Information

Fair Oaks is a CDP in Sacramento. The total population is 31K. Residents who are lucky to live in that area are more into a conservative lifestyle. Especially, there are many young professionals and retirees who want to live without hustle and bustle of modern cities.

Major Events in the History

The history of this CDP dates back to 1844 when it was known as a citrus-growing land. Starting from 1902, Fair Oaks Fruit Company has been established there and promoted the exportation of citruses, almonds, and olives. The agricultural diversity attracted many investors who also started developing other community services including hotels, grocery stores, banking facilities, and dining places among others.

Later on, by 1910 Fair Oaks has already had two churches, Library Association, and in 1919, Civic Club for leisure.

Unfortunately, in 1932 Fair Oaks lost many citrus fields because of the big freeze and was no longer considered as the major producer of citruses in California.


It is located between Sacramento and Folsom in California, bounded by the American River as well as Rancho Cordova. It is surrounded by Citrus Heights, Carmichael, Orangevale, and Folsom. In general, Fair Oaks is a mixture of suburban and rural areas. The total area of this CDP is around 29 km2.


Hot-summer Mediterranean climate is about Fair Oaks. It can boast simultaneously mild winters and very wet and hot summers. The average mean temperature is 16.1 °C.

Snow is quite rare in this area. Only sometimes, during the cold winter, there are intensive showers which may lead to hail, however, it greatly spoils the driving conditions. Any snow that is likely to fall in Fair Oaks has a nature to melt instantly upon the contact with the ground.

The precipitation level is 470mm annually and may occur only in 60 days per year.


Fair Oaks has moderate diversity and consists of 26% of White, 2.4% of African Americans, less than 1% of Native Americans. Among other racial groups, there are Asians, Pacific Islanders as well as Hispanic and Latino people.

Education System

Fair Oaks has elementary, middle, and high schools which are both public and private ones. Also, one may find Christian School and Catholic one to pursue education with simultaneous knowledge of the religious impact on society.

The most popular educational establishments are RIO Americano High School and Bella Vista High School.

As per reviews, the schools do not give much promise in the proficiency of certain subjects. It is generally described as above-average education. However, parents are most likely to send their children to additional programs or classes that allow them to pursue an education in top-rated universities.

Notable People
  • Matt Barnes — professional American basketball player.
  • Joe Carnahan — a director of “Smokin’ Aces”.

Reviews on Living in Fair Oaks

Residents describe Fair Oaks as a place where balance is met everywhere. You may find inner peace in parks and simultaneously enjoy art, music and city life. It is not a luxury spot to live in, as the majority of residents are of the middle class, however, they made it a benefit. It is a family-oriented area where children may find many sportive classes or art-making programs. Still, those who seek nightlife activities, Fair Oaks is limited in their variety, so it is better to go to nearby cities which are pretty near if going by car.

Fair Oaks Rankings: 80 out of 816 as the Best for Retiring in California, 154 out of 525 as the Best for Living in California as well as 164 out of 525 as the Best for Raising a Family in California — as per Niche.

ADU Building Fair Oaks

MIn many communities all over the country, you can meet different versions of ADUs. And all of them are created for different reasons. If you are now still doubting about getting your own ADU, we are here to demonstrate the key reasons why people choose to build these units on their lands.

  • Extra money

This is an obvious point: you get benefits by renting the ADU out to other people. This point works specifically well if you live either in a “university town” or in a “travel destination”.

In the first case, if your city has a lot of universities, it means that every year students all over the country (or all over the world) might come. If they do not want to live in the dormitories, they start looking for a place to rent. Your ADU thus might bring you money every month of every year!

In the second case, if your town is usually full of tourists, this means they look for daily renting opportunities. If you can provide them with them — they will choose your ADU and bring you additional money.

  • Place for relatives

If you have children who want to try a separate life but cannot afford to rent their own house, this might become a solution.

Or, if you want your old parents to stay closer to you, but not that close, you can provide them with a living space in the ADU.

  • Workspace

In the current circumstances, remote work is becoming a more and more popular choice. But, if your house is already full of people (relatives, children), you definitely need an “office”. An ADU will give you a chance to work in a calm and quiet environment, and you will not even have to leave it for the entire working day.

  • Personal needs

Sometimes we just need free space to get some rest. If you have a lot of children, this is exactly the case. Private time becomes more valuable — it is a “rare gift”. In this situation, an ADU might become a real salvation for you — a quiet place without people is a perfect solution for relaxation.

Prefab ADU Construction

If at this point you already want to get your personal ADU, consider the following issues:

  • What do you want?

Try to get an image of your future unit in your head.

  • What can you afford?

Thinking about financial resources is always a good idea.

  • When do you want to start?

If your answer is “now”, then we are waiting for your call to A+ Construction & Remodeling as soon as possible!

ADU Housing

In the past three years, the popularity of “granny flats” increased because they represent a smart solution for efficient land use. People have their own reason to get an ADU for themselves or their family members. Anyway, this is a wise investment.

Besides, according to the research, an ADU increases the initial property price by 30%. Thus, when you are selling your residence, creating a unit will pay off.

  • Frequently Asked Questions

    How much does it cost to build an ADU in California?

    The cost of an ADU, regardless of the city, depends on the materials and the price of the services of building companies you ask for help. In general, you can get an ADU and spend from 100000$ to 350000$ on it. But, you can always stick to a cheaper option of the ADU: garage conversions, for instance. This project in Sacramento, for example, costs approximately 50000$.

    Can I build an ADU on my property in California?

    Yes, if you are aware of the state law regulations, you can get an ADU on your property. Ask your construction company to get you acquainted with the ordinance concerning the ADU size and make sure you get the required permit.

    Do you need a permit for Adu in California?

    In each city of CA, you have to have a permit for accessory dwelling units. It concerns both ADUs and JADUs (junior ADU) (junior ADU size should not exceed 500 sq. ft). As a property owner, you are interested in developing a proper project that will consider all housing peculiarities, including ADU size, lot coverage, safety issues, and some others.

    What are the requirements for an ADU in California?

    In CA, if you are thinking of the unit, you should also keep in mind housing requirements concerning the accessory dwelling units. At the beginning of 2020, the councils adopted a number of new rules in Sacramento that have to be followed. A unit has to be located at a certain distance from the primary house (10 feet) and a property line (5 feet); it should have a certain size (no more than 800 sq.ft.), certain height (16 feet).
