This article will be extremely useful for those who are considering the renovation of their private property. Purposes of housing renovation might be numerous: some homeowners think that their property is getting older and some elements inside (like plumbing or electricity) need to be replaced; others are worried about what their neighbors think about them and seek the most fashionable housing solutions. Some people simply lack free space in their houses — this article is for these Davis guys.

If you have never heard about ADU, it is time for you to learn about this phenomenon. An accessory dwelling unit (ADU) is an additional “building” on your property, usually equipped with everything one might need for a comfortable life. These accessory dwelling units serve different purposes, but they are united with one thing: they provide homeowners with additional space.

Davis Accessory Dwelling Unit Builders For Hire

If you are planning housing renovations or something more “large-scale” like building the ADU on your property, you need professional help. Our company is here to take all corresponding responsibilities to simplify the “apartment enlargement”.

We save your money

No, this is not a paradox; this is logic. If you are not an expert in the field, the chances are that your first couple of building trials will fail. This means you will lose money on materials since every new attempt requires new resources. This is not the case when you work with an experienced contractor like us. The cost of the housing services is more than affordable.

We save your time

Developing an ADU project on your own takes time, especially if you are planning to do it for the first time. You will have to consider all the peculiarities of building a bedroom, a bathroom, a toilet, and a cooking place. The space has to be organized in a comfortable and convenient way. Without much experience, it will take years of your life to “expand the land” properly. However, working with A+ Construction & Remodeling guarantees the opposite — we will build your ADU in Davis from start to end in less than a year.

We save your nerves

Nobody from the East to West Sacramento likes doing something that does not come out well. Little experience in creating an accessory dwelling unit (ADU) usually means that you will have to worry about everything in order not to damage your property. Contact our office, and you will not have to think about your apartment 24/7 — we will do the job for you.

ADU Contractor in Davis

Working in the housing area gave us enough experience to do the job properly. We have a team of professionals, each of whom passed the selection to become a part of the crew. That is why if you are planning to expand your property with the ADU, we strongly recommend you trusting us with your future project.

ADU Unit Construction In Davis

There are very different kinds of ADUs allowed in Davis. Let us consider several of them.

Attached ADU

A so-called “attached ADU” is an additional building on the property that, however, shares one or more walls with the primary dwelling. Usually, you can access the “paraphernalia” of the attached ADU without leaving the single-family home first. This is probably one of the most popular kinds of ADU in Davis.

Detached ADU

A detached ADU is another popular accessory dwelling unit option in Davis. People all over the United States, from San Francisco to Winnipeg, from West Sacramento to Edmonton, choose detached accessory dwelling units because they serve as completely separate pieces of property. In other words, a detached ADU represents a new construction that does not share common walls with the primary dwelling.

ADU above the garage

Another great option if you are thinking of the ADU on your property is to create it above the garage. This ADU occupies the same lot like the garage does but makes its roof bring you benefits. This is exactly what people call smart resource management!

Garage conversion

Continuing with the topic of garages, such an ADU in Davis can be created via the transformation of your garage. So, if you have one on the property and you do not use it for your car, think of reconstructing it into an accessory dwelling unit. The state law does not prohibit doing this — then why would you not change to a “granny flat”?

The lower level ADU

If your primary dwelling allows, you can create an ADU even under your property! This is the question of the peculiarities of the primary home and your housing preferences.

As you see, there are a number of ADUs allowed in Davis, which means that you will definitely find the perfect option for you and your family members.

However, if you want the work to be done perfectly and quickly, you should consider addressing it to a professional. One of the leading experts in the field is A+ Construction & Remodeling.

Davis ADU Construction Company

If you address our company, we will develop an individual program for you. In general, the plan of the program  is the following:

  • Design

At first, we will listen to you carefully and try to develop an idea of what you want to get in the end. Now, when you know that if a single-family residence exists on the property, you can build any kind of an ADU, you can give free rein to your fantasy. Our designers will come up with several options, and after your approval, you will get a visualization of the future ADU. Customers especially value an opportunity to explore the model before the building process begins — this is something you will lack if you decide to develop the project on your own.

  • Planning

Planning works stand for creating real plans. Our best engineers will work on this step of the program so that there are no troubles in real-life works in the future.

  • Choosing the materials

When you come to our office, we help you choose the most fitting materials. The real value of this step cannot be overestimated — only high-quality materials will serve you for the long years.

  • Getting building permit

To create an ADU, you will have to get a building permit: the truth is that there are some rules to be obeyed. These requirements cover the maximum size of the ADU, the minimum lot size, and many other issues. They all are available on the net — just check up your browser — however, there are some peculiarities with the law, that is why we recommend addressing A+ Construction & Remodeling professionals.

Benefits of ADU Building

Benefits of ADU Building

  • Additional Income: having an ADU on your property that you can rent out for additional income is a project that will pay for itself. Some homeowners are adding an ADU to alleviate their mortgage payment in the long run.
  • Guest House: an ADU will give you an option to host guests without disturbing your lifestyle. Having guests stay on the property but not necessarily in your home, makes it easier for the homeowner.
  • Living Quarters for Parents: if you have aging parents that you want to take care of in the comfort of your own space, having an ADU will make it possible for them to live close to you and yet let you have your own home for comfort.

Building ADU In Davis

Although the idea of having a “granny flat” seems attractive for the entire property owners community of Davis, they still seek concrete advantages of building one ADU. And indeed, financing this investment is a cost-effective and efficient option.

  • Granny flats for family members

If you have relatives who come to you several times a year, you can use your ADU facilities as guest houses if you feel like you do not want them to live in your primary home. Or, for instance, if you have younger relatives who want to try “adult life”, an ADU will be a great opportunity for them to try it since renting a separate house might cost too much. Or, if, on the contrary, you want your older relatives to live closer to you, but not too close, building an ADU and expanding the space will work. “Family issues” is one of the most popular reasons for families to obtain an ADU.

  • Extra income

We believe that nobody will give up on extra income. In this case, under the extra income, we mean money you can receive if you decide to rent ADU on your property out. Students might become your frequent renters if you have universities in the “closest neighborhoods”. Every year dozens of students who do not want to live in the dormitory come to study, and all of them are interested in having their personal space that shares the location of their university.

Also, these units might bring you benefits when renting them for the guests of the city. For instance, if you live in the “travel destination city” and meet a lot of tourists there, you can use your property to rent it out for them for short-term periods. Actually, every town has something to show; that is why even in Davis, you will find renters ready to pay the local community members for the” bedroom service”.

  • Quiet personal space

After a long day, many of us are interested in spending free time in silence. People who have stressful work especially value this opportunity. Financing an ADU, in this case, will also mean financing your mental health. Maintaining nerves in healthy conditions is essential in the modern world; that is why such a unit will serve as a safe, quiet place in the loud city.

  • Increase property value

If you are planning to sell your single-family home in the future, getting an ADU is also advisable. It is a well-known fact that building an ADU in Davis increases the initial property value of the families’ residences. The research of the housing market demonstrates that in CA, the property value goes up by 25-35% — depending on the neighborhood and county. Of course, this is not a short-term investment — you will not get money as quickly as if you decided to rent it out, but it is still a meaningful reason for the families to become interested in an ADU.

  • Workplace

In the hard times of the Coronavirus, getting remote work is a question of safety, not only comfort. That is why more and more people in Davis decide not to leave their single-family homes and stay within their property during a working day. Getting an ADU allows you to have a personal office and not to move around the city at all. Thus, if you are already working from home or just planning to, you will especially value this opportunity.

These office units, besides the location, are convenient inside. You can develop some sort of a bathroom and a kitchen in your ADU office — then you will not have to leave the office at all — you can maintain your activities during the day inside your property.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does an ADU cost in California?

In CA, the price of one ADU might vary depending on different factors: the type of the ADU (attached/ detached/ garage conversion), its size, the choice of materials, and some other issues. According to recent housing research, getting an ADU on your land in CA will cost you less than 400 thousand dollars, whereas the minimum spending is approximately 350 thousand dollars.

What are the requirements for an ADU in California?

In CA, just like in any other state of the USA, the government prepares a state law that covers the requirements towards accessory dwelling units. Davis City Council adopted Ordinance 2602, which amended the Davis Municipal Code pertaining to Accessory Dwelling Units. In general, the maximum size of the unit is 800 square feet, and the maximum height is 16 feet. According to the law, minimum setbacks are expected to be the same as the primary home. Fire safety should be ensured if the primary single-family home requires it. Residential parcels will not be subject to any minimum lot size for ADUs by ordinance or of the underlying zoning district.

Does an ADU increase value?

Accessory dwelling units do increase the property value. On the housing market, if families have an ADU, their property can be sold more expensive. That is why building an ADU might bring you money not only if you rent it out but also if you decide to change your place of living. According to housing research, if you have such a unit, the initial property value in CA increases by approximately 30% — depending on the city, the number might vary.

    Before moving to our new home in California, we decided to give the kitchen a more personalized feel. We contacted A+ Construction and Redemoling as a recommendation from a friend. Their designers took us through a number of designs. Today, all friends admire our kitchen. They truly didn't disappoint.

    We hired A+ Construction & Remodeling to convert our garage to an ADU. Both our project manager and the construction team were pleasant to work with. They were always on time and managed to finish the project even before the deadline they set for it. We are extremely pleased with the outcome. We would recommend A+ to anyone considering a home remodel or new construction.
