Even though many people falsely think that constructing an ADU is a no-brainer, in reality, this process includes various skills and lots of knowledge.

We have amassed lots of experience throughout the years of work in this field and want to share with you how to find the right home builders for your project:

So, you’ve decided to build an ADU – but which one? Do you know that in recent years contractors have come up with a variety of ADU types, and each one has its distinctive features? Before commencing new construction, you have to decide on what backyard cottage you would like to see on your lot.
Our company offers to build the following ADU types:
Looking at the finished projects, it is easy to notice the distinctive feature of it – a shared wall. Yes, this unit will be placed on your ground next to the main house, which it will have a common wall with. This decreases the time for the installation and lowers the budget requirements. Even though it is placed right next to the house, it will have a separate entrance.
This type definitely comes to your mind when you only think about these home additions. It represents a new construction built on your lot that stands at a distance from the main house. While being the most expensive option on the list, it provides owners with much more privacy than other variants, as none will disturb the tenants there because of the personal entrance. What is more, you can choose the design according to your preferences, and it does not necessarily have to match the main building. You can change any materials for it, for example, siding, and add any custom detail you desire.
If you have any unused rooms in your house, this option is for you. Consider ordering the conversion to turn your old and weary room into a fine living space that will attract tenants. As we will not have to build any new constructions, the cost of the project will not be huge. On request, our crew can replace the windows there or repair furniture. For your safety, access to the room will be closed for the time of remodeling.
From the name, one can guess that this accessory dwelling unit will be smaller in size than other types, and they will be correct. The main requirement to build this ADU is the size, as it cannot exceed 500 square feet. Despite the size, we assure you that our crew can make you impressed by the quality of work they can do in these restrictions.
In the previous paragraph, we mentioned the regulations for the ADU building in Walnut Grove. Well, these restrictions work in any part of California, so it’s advisable that you know them.
Your general contractor should follow these regulations:
Every owner has to have some courage to begin the construction of an accessory dwelling unit. Probably, the list below can help you make the right decision. Believe us, your family will not be disappointed with your decision to have an accessory dwelling unit on your land.
The benefits of building an ADU on your lot are:
Working with a general contractor for the first time may be rather scary. You don’t confide the process of the construction of a house to other people every day. However, we may assure you that the years of tireless work on ADU projects have helped us realize more and more fascinating projects that we are proud of.
However, our company has a grand variety of other advantages, such as:
Before signing a contract for ADU construction, you will get a free estimate from our employees. There you will see the approximate cost, time until the completed project, and other details.
We have completed numerous projects in different cities of California, from Walnut Creek to Sacramento, so in our portfolio, you can find a project for your taste and budget, including remodeling options as well as the construction of totally new units.
We believe that the best owner is the one who is truly interested in their property and wants to have the best of the best. Hence, if you see that something goes wrong during the construction or want to add certain custom details, address any builder you see on the site, and they will pass your thoughts to the employees, and we will think about what we can do together.
Home builders at A+ will be happy to provide you with an ADU construction. Having worked everywhere, from Walnut Creek to Sacramento, our services always satisfy the pickiest customers.
We have already discussed the ADU types and their advantages, but you are still insecure about whether you want one? Overall, it will not be superfluous, but if you want some certainty, here are the ways one can use an ADU.
Every professional will tell you that housing prices always rise, sometimes faster and sometimes slower, but they never stop. Hence, having a custom home on the lot will allow you to find tenants who will pay you. It will help you pay it off and find money to repair your main house. Moreover, if you decide to sell your property, an ADU will help you ask for a better price.
In the completed ADU, you will be able to do whatever you want, for example, start a new hobby. A custom home can be transformed into your personal studio where you can start shooting your video blog and show the subscribers how to do bathroom or kitchen remodel. With a custom home, your possibilities are unlimited!
An ADU can become a great place for meditation in the summer after all the stress throughout the year. Close all the windows to abstain from the outside world, stay in the bathroom as much as possible, create business plans, or focus on improving your competencies connected with the job. An accessory dwelling unit can help you do it with ease.
If you don’t feel like ordering an accessory dwelling unit right now, consider installing a Prefab ADU. As you can tell from the name, this unit will not be as custom as the regular one, so you won’t have designers involved in this project, and it will be impossible to change anything about it, for example, add siding or an extra bathroom.
Instead, we will provide you with an ADU design from our catalog. Our job will not require creating a new custom ADU design and working out special certifications. Consequently, the cost of the service will be much lower, and it will take home builders less time to complete the project. Time from breaking ground to delivering the finished accessory dwelling unit can decrease up to two times.
We believe that at this moment, there shouldn’t be any doubts about the necessity of an ADU on the lot in Walnut Grove. Any professional general contractor will tell you that an accessory dwelling unit is a great investment in your future, a much better one than a kitchen remodel or windows change. A unit will pay off with time, and eventually, you will get your money back. Stop buying products on sale and start increasing your family budget with an A+!
Overall, the amount of time required for professional home builders to complete the project depends on a variety of factors, including the location, building materials, foundation type, and many more. Surely, it will not take more than a year, as it did a couple years ago, but we estimate an ADU to be completed in a bit more than half a year.
After the job is done, our home builders will leave your new property in Walnut Grove, and you will be able to do with it anything you want, from custom siding to full kitchen remodel. We, as a general contractor, cannot interfere with any changes you find necessary in the finished project.
Our crew of home builders has to work on the project from the start till the moment when it’s finished. We don’t reach out to any subcontractors and do all the work on our own. Our home builders have years of experience in building custom homes, so you can be sure that your ADU will be built according to modern standards and on time.
