Thankfully, the world of construction options needs to be made better and always evolves. The recent trend in this sphere is the construction of prefab ADUs. The prefab accessory dwelling units, which are sometimes called granny flats, backyard cottages, or custom houses, represent a small building with all the necessary amenities that are situated on your lot next to the main house.
Normally, any owner is expected to be knowledgeable in the matters connected with home repairs and small renovations. However, ADU projects are more complex than they seem because the whole process includes a variety of different tasks which are hard to do on your own. For sure, you can start the ADU construction, but no matter how hard-working you are, we estimate that you will spend twice or thrice as much time as a hired team of home builders would have spent.
All in all, it is relatively easy to find a professional team of home builders who will do the construction as well as take care of legal issues like building codes in a census-designated place like Penryn. Take into consideration the points below.
The quality of the new construction almost entirely depends on the choice of the company that will provide you with services. However, when it comes to choosing a business that will take care of your project, there are all sorts of intricacies to take into consideration.
A+ Remodeling & Construction, whose professional team with years of experience and numerous finished projects of high quality, is the best pick for this task, and here is why:
The quality job should speak for itself; hence, on our site, you can find the projects completed by us. Based on our previous works, you can decide for yourself whether our designs match your vision of the future ADU or not.
When homeowners hire contractors, they have already decided to spend a certain sum. Before making a choice, we advise you to call the managers or look through the site and check the cost of completed ADUs. Remember that building a granny flat is not cheap, so the price must be respective, which is clearly seen from the projects done by our crew.
Honest builders have nothing to hide. Hence, they normally provide customers with all the documents that are necessary to build accessory dwelling units. On our site, you can find information on the matter in a special section.
Read this article further to find out more about ADUs. However, if you are already interested in constructing one on your property, contact the general contractor A+ Remodeling & Construction. They can do an excellent job at quality levels never to have been seen in any part of Placer County.
The preferences of clients concerning the ADU building project are always different. Hence, contractors have come up with certain variations of ADUs that are different in price, proximity to the main house, time spent to complete the project, and so on.
On your lot, we can create the following ADUs:
Even though this is a totally new construction that will be built on your property, one wall will still be connected to your main building. Because of it, the cost of such construction is lower than that of detached ADUs while saving all the benefits.
Detached ADUs are great for people with a big budget and much space on the lot. Our home builders will create a new independent structure on your lot with its own entrance and the necessary amenities. This new home will not be connected to your main house in any way, so it fits well to generate rental income.
In case you choose the conversion, we will not have to construct anything new on your lot, but instead, we will do a renovation of the already existing space. For example, in our portfolio, you can find cases when we succeeded in transforming the existing garage into a modern ADU with all the utilities.
The main distinctive feature of JADUs is their size. The completed project has to be smaller than 500 square feet. This type has looser rules for building codes which lets home builders be more creative in the process.
The construction of an accessory dwelling unit requires following the laws and regulations imposed by the government and the state of California. First, on your lot, there has to be the main house. The future ADU will be smaller than it. What is more, it has to be built by the owner of the main property.
Second, there are regulations that impose the dimensions cap. 500 square feet is the maximum for a JADU, while 1000 square feet cannot be exceeded by a regular ADU. Moreover, the attached ADU, no matter the number of floors, cannot be higher than 30 feet. As for detached ADUs, the number is twice as small, 16 feet only.
ADUs can be easily named an indispensable part of any modern house in California, and here is why:
There are numerous ways one can influence ADU construction:
As we have discussed earlier, there are many ways one can use an ADU. However, there is also a grand variety of options for how it can be transformed.
If you need more space for your hobby, for example, photography, and want to avoid finding an office, use your ADU. Install the necessary lighting, buy cameras, and start your hobby. What is more, you can increase the attraction of possible tenants through the distinctive features of your ADU. Hardly can one resist renting a place with two bathrooms or a spa.
Add these features to the design of your ADU, and we will do our best to bring them to life. Building accessory dwelling units has always been challenging with A+, one of the best general contractors in California!
Even though we have discussed ADU variations earlier, there is one option we should have mentioned. Prefab ADUs stand apart from other types while having distinctive features, too, the most important one being their prefabricated nature. Yes, we will not create the design from scratch specifically for you but rather offer you to build one from our portfolio. Your ADU will not be original, but, for sure, our services will cost you much less. Moreover, the time spent to build one decreases dramatically too.
So, opt for a prefab ADU if you are looking for a fast and rather inexpensive option. Contact A+, and we will find the best prefab ADUs just for you.
In the modern world, with ever-increasing housing prices, ADUs are a great investment for your family. It can be used as a starting point for the renting business, for a hobby, or even a new job, and because of its versatility, such constructions should be on the lot of every homeowner in California.
Overall, the final answer depends on the ADU, its difficulty, and unpredictable intricacies. However, contractors and home builders will tell you that, on average, we estimate that it takes from 7 to 12 months to construct a single ADU.
Based on our portfolio, we are one of the most experienced home builders in California. We have provided services in every part of this state, starting from places like Fair Oaks and ending with cities like Sacramento.
Yes, you can! After having completed the construction, the unit is entirely yours, and you can do anything with it you want, including the changes of siding or roofing. It is entirely your business, and we cannot be involved in it.
