There are many cases in our lives when the amount of existing space that we have in our house simply becomes not enough! If you reached that point, an ADU house might be the option for you!

Accessory Dwelling Unit or ADU (also called granny flats) is an expansion of your own primary dwelling that can be placed on the Property of your land. ADU can be in the form of an attached piece of Property to your main dwelling or a separate accessory structure situated on your land.

As the price of buying an additional piece of land or a whole new single-family residence/property is increasing every day, ADUs are now very popular in the states. This is due to the reason that the urbanization and population growth processes never stop, which means that many offers are made for one piece of Property, and the owners feel confident in raising up the cost.

Because of that, we would say that Accessory Dwelling Units are the perfect choice for those that do not want to spend a ridiculously big amount of money on the new Property but still need to expand their living area somehow.

We do not want to say that Accessory Dwelling Unit is flawless; no, it still has its own disadvantages, such as state law regulations that can differ in various states, about which anyone who would want to make a granny flat needs to be careful. But in general, ADU is more profitable than other possible options of expanding the Property.

In this article, we will try to cover all of the needed information regarding making Accessory Dwelling Units, law regulations included.

Placerville Accessory Dwelling Unit Builders for Hire

You may decide to have a baby, a few of them, or move your elderly parents with you so that you can look after them. No matter the reason, building an ADU is an excellent and wise choice for anyone.

We understand that a simple need to build an Additional Dwelling Unit is not enough to make your dreams come true; a contractor and a design are also needed.

With that in mind, we believe that by choosing A+ Remodeling and Construction company, you will be completely satisfied with the result that you will receive for your Property.

Aside from Accessory Dwelling Units building, here is a list of other services that we are providing, to name a few:

  • Home improvement plans and designs
  • Full home remodeling
  • Partial remodelings, such as of your kitchen or bathroom
  • Room additions, and many more

A+ is the kind of company that does more than a simple building process: by choosing us, you will also receive a consultation where all of your needs will be asked about, a whole package of building materials, a plan and design for your project (floor plan included), all the building permits, and an array of other services, the need for which may come up during the construction.

ADU Contractor in Placerville

We know how frustrating the building process can be if you do not have the right team for your project: the materials might not come to the right time, or not all development standards were fulfilled on the Property.

To ease your mind about us and what you will receive within the A+ ADU construction project, we provide you with a comprehensive list of all of the steps that will take place during our cooperations:

  • First, or ADU contractor team will talk with you about your needs and requirements for creating an Accessory Dwelling Unit for you so that they could make a general plan of your construction not only with regard to ADU Placerville Ca laws but also with your wishes for the ADU design. In general, we recommend all of our clients design their additional housing with regard to the surrounding neighborhood and its appearance.
  • Second, together with you, our A+ team will make a flexible schedule so that you would feel comfortable with the timing chosen by us for the building process.
  • Within a third step, our professionals will get a building permit for your project from the Development Services Department (together with the application and submittal requirements that are required), find all the needed materials and color board of your preference, and start the building process.
  • Fourth, our A+ ADU team will try its best to avoid any unnecessary delays so that the project would be done within the time range previously agreed upon by both sides.
  • Fifth, the warranty that fits the type of your Accessory Dwelling Unit and the amount of work done by our workers will be provided for you, so that no fears about something being broken down a few days after the end of the construction would be present.

ADU Unit Construction in Placerville

In this section, we would like to discuss some peculiarities of Accessory Dwelling Units’ construction, such as the types of ADUs and their advantages. This way, we believe that you would be able to make a final decision on whether or not you need to make an ADU.

Types of ADUs

There are four general types of Accessory Dwelling Units that you can make, such as:

  • Attached ADU, logically enough, gets connected to your main single-family house.
  • Detached ADUs that are in reverse with the previous type stand separately from your main house.
  • Conversion ADUs are the type that allows you to change an already existing space of your home to a decent living area. An example of such an existing accessory building that can be converted is a garage or studio.
  • Junior Accessory Dwelling Units mean almost the same as the conversion accessory building does, with some small remarks: the existing area that is to be converted should be no more than 500 square feet and have easy access to the main home’s utilities.

Note that for the two last types, you would want the color board to be harmonious with the already existing residence’ one. In addition, they do not require a separate utility connection, as the first ones that do.

Possible Perks of Creating an ADU

There is quite a number of advantages that an ADU, be it a detached ADU or any other type, has, and after reading this part, you will understand why we and our clients are so satisfied with ADUs.

  • An ADU can be used not only for your own needs but also for the benefit of other people, to some extent: you can rent your ADU and get an extra income. Of course, it will vary depending on the type and size of your ADU, but nevertheless, some extra money will come to you.
  • Building Accessory Dwelling Units will be useful for you not only in the present times but also in the future: in case you decide to sell your single-family house, an ADU will add some amount of money to the price of your home.
  • As we already mentioned before, building an ADU is an excellent and the cheapest way to deal with the new living situation: when your parents will move in, it is highly probable that your primary residence will become overcrowded, which will only bring a certain level of discomfort to each member of your family. An ADU can help you to solve this problem.
  • Moreover, if you are the host of some family or friends’ gatherings most of the time or want to become one, you might enjoy having an ADU for your guests to stay in.

We believe that choosing A+ Construction and Remodeling team for your ADU project would be a decision you will not regret: with our services and 20 years of experience, we definitely know a thing or two about construction and the ways to approach it and work with clients.

  • A great team that knows enough to be able to make an excellent job and prevent any unnecessary problems that may occur during the construction process
  • An approach that ensures the professionalism of our workers, as well as their care for your needs
  • A project that would be done within the time range and in a high-quality manner
  • A great number of positive reviews from our clients
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 Placerville

Now let us take a look at some basic information about the law regulations present in Placerville that can influence your ADU plan and project. Please read them carefully so that no future misunderstanding and whole reconstruction of your ADU would appear, as many factors can play a role in that.

Places and Sizes

Generally speaking, you can place an ADU if residential uses are allowed for your Property. In addition, a single-family house or a multi-family building should be placed on the Property for you to have a right to make an ADU there.

No minimum lot size amount is not present in the laws for any zoning district, so here you have nothing to worry about. However, note that the maximum square footage of your new ADU will vary in accordance with the type of ADU. Logically enough, detached ADUs will have a bigger maximum size allowed in comparison with an attached ADU.

As for the height of your future extension, one-story is the general one that you reach as a minimum requirement. Maximum height is not found in the laws.

The Amount of Permitted ADUs per one Property

Talking about the common types of properties that are used for making an ADU – single-family homes – the maximum number of ADUs you can have would be one per one parcel, but again, it also depends on the size of your territory and the types of ADUs you would want to create.

As for the multi-family houses, this number would depend on the type of ADU that is wanted and on the number of dwelling units that are already filled. In the case of multi-family buildings, it might be harder to get a permit, but not impossible.

Setbacks and Parking Requirements

Let us start first with the setback requirements and zoning designation: the minimum setbacks for the detached and attached ADUs would be four square feet from the side and rear property line. A zoning designation, such as the rear yard setback, is not required for a one-story ADU, but it should be at least 60 feet away from the front property line.

When making other types, such as conversion and junior ones, these restrictions are not demanded, but please, do not forget about fire safety.

Talking about parking: the only types of ADU that may need to provide parking are detached and attached ones, and the needed amount is one per each. For others, there is no law for additional parking required.

Prefab ADU Construction

Another important thing about making an ADU that you should know is called prefabricated construction, which basically means that a certain constructor will bring to you all of the needed materials and make in advance parts of the future house. After that, the A+ team will simply connect the pieces together.

Prefab construction is quite a popular method these days, as it has a great number of advantages both for our team and for you, as our client:

  • A lot of time gets saved with this method, as the team would not have to spend time on putting together all of the details and remaking them if the supplier has sent you the wrong pieces.
  • The quality of the details usually would be better, as already made pieces come to you.
  • You, as the client, would get a newly built house very quickly.
  • The pricing is not as high as you would think: again, it all depends on the type and the size of ADU, but in general, we would say that the price would start from 300 dollars.

ADU Housing

In the states, ADU housing is quite a widespread method of expanding your already existing living area without going through the burden of buying very expensive second houses.

Summing all other previous stuff up, we would say that ADU housing is a relatively cheap and fast way of getting an additional rental income, an additional space for your relatives to live, or a guest house in case some friends would stay over.

Building an ADU and getting a permit is not as hard as you might think, and we would totally recommend you this option if you decide to expand your primary residence.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are JADUs?

Junior Accessory Dwelling Units are the type of ADUs that are made in an already existing space of your houses, such as the garage or a studio. The only difference from the conversion types of ADUs is that they have some restrictions: the size should be no bigger than 500 square feet, and easy access to the utilities of the primary dwelling should be present.

Also, some cities and states allow you not to pay for the utility or related connection fee/capacity charge for such extensions, but you should check your regulations and development standards to be sure. In addition, the property owner is obliged to live on the Property where JADU is built, and JADUs need the permit as much as the other types.

What are the benefits of ADUs?

Here is a list of some advantages that you may gain by creating an ADU:

  • A cheaper and quicker way of expanding the living area of your Property
  • A guest house for your friends and family members that may want to stay over
  • A place for your elderly parents to move into when they can no longer take care of themselves
  • An additional income if you decide to rent an ADU
  • An increase of the price for your house, in case you would sell it in the future
  • No zoning district regulations are present

What can I use my Accessory Dwelling Unit for?

There are plenty of functions that your ADU can carry out. For example, it can be a guest house, a rental house, a place for your elderly parents to live, or simple storage for some unnecessary things (if you have a lot of them).

You can make whatever you want out of your ADU, even a recording studio or a personal space for your kids to be in. However, an Accessory Dwelling Unit Permit application is also required here.

    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.
