Accessory dwelling units (ADUs) have reshaped the housing market in recent years. More and more homeowners want to have one on their lot because of their various advantages in comparison to building a new house. However, if you still don’t know what an accessory dwelling unit is but want to find out more, this article is for you.

ADUs, which you may also encounter under the names like granny flats, backyard cottages, or bonus homes, represent a construction built on the same lot as the main house but a bit smaller. Having all the amenities and a separate entrance, this building can be used in many various ways. Continue reading this article to find out more about ADU types, the cost, as well as possible rental income and tips for finding the right contractor.

A+ Construction & Remodeling is a reliable company with years of experience in the sphere. Our professional team can help you build an ADU on your property and, at the same time, avoid any headaches.

Possible Types of ADUs Next to Your Primary House

To promote their service, general contractors involved in building accessory dwelling units have developed a large variety of ADU types that can be built on the lot. Let’s take a closer look at the distinctive features of this type of property.

Detached ADU

When you think about constructing an ADU, you probably imagine this very ADU type. This new construction will stand on your property separately, which allows it to provide the best privacy. Having the highest cost among other variants, it has all the needed utilities, a separate entrance, and a design matching your main house.

Attached ADU

The main distinctive feature of this unit is one of its walls, which is shared with the main building. This makes access to the unit much easier. Hence it will fit a family who wants to enlarge their living space in Sutter County.


In this case, we will not have to build new construction on your property but will do the remodeling of one of your existing rooms. As we will basically do slight renovations, our home builders will work less on the project, and it will take less time to finish it, creating the best price on the list among other projects.

Junior ADU

The main feature of this ADU is its size. Junior ADUs have to be less than 500 square feet. Concerning everything else, it will be just a regular ADU with amenities and a separate entrance. Definitely, it is not one of the multifamily properties, but it can fit a single person or a married couple.

Sutter Accessory Dwelling Unit Builders for Hire

You may think that building an ADU is a simple process, but the reality is often disappointing, and for non-professionals, it may take years and cost a fortune to build one. Hence, it’s better to work with a general contractor, a professional team that has completed various projects all over California.

A+ Construction & Remodeling fits perfectly for this role. We can help you get the required building permit, our architects will prepare a perfect design for you, and our builders will construct an ADU in a way that no checking will ever find a flaw.

ADU Contractor in Sutter

Right now on the market, there are various businesses offering their services to homeowners in Sutter, California. But how to choose the right one with this abundance of ADU builders?

We have prepared the following list of tips on how to choose the right general contractor:

  • Normally, the contractors collect a portfolio of their previously completed projects. You can find it on their site or ask for it in their office. Take a look at this portfolio to find out whether they are experienced in the field or not. Notice the work of the architect, as it can help you understand whether their design fits you.
  • When it comes to ADUs, the pricing is highly important too. Accessory dwelling units are not cheap, so if you see that the prices in the portfolio are several times lower than the average price, dump this business and find someone else.
  • According to state law, to have an opportunity to install ADUs, one has to possess certain certifications. We would become extremely suspicious of the business that can’t provide you with proof that they can work in your area. After all, it is the contractors whose job is to check whether an ADU complies with the California building code.

ADU Unit Construction in Sutter

The modern USA is not a Wild West. Hence we cannot build anything we want on your property. Concerning ADUs, there are certain requirements. The reliable general contractor has to take care of them, but it will not be unnecessary for you to know too.

According to the legislation, the minimum lot size where you will place an ADU should be no less than 7000 square feet. As for the ADUs themselves, their size cannot exceed 500 square feet if we talk about Junior ADUs, or 1000 square feet (for regular ADUs). Before the construction process, together with the lawyers, we will check whether your location fits the requirements or not.


Benefits of ADU Building

If you are unsure about building an ADU, the following benefits may help you make the final decision:

  1. Your guests, even the unexpected ones, can come at any time, and you will be prepared. If you are having difficulties with accommodating friends and relatives coming from Elk Grove, Fair Oaks, Rio Linda, and Rancho Cordova, who are eager to stay overnight, an ADU will be a perfect solution.
  2. It is a typical situation when your parents become too old to live alone, and you have to take care of their health. Accessory dwelling units are the means of solving this problem. Build it and let your parents live nearby with all amenities, including a bathroom, kitchen area, and bedroom.
  3. In life, there is no extra money, so you can also use an ADU to get extra income for the family budget. We are sure that tenants will be happy to live in an ADU built by us. Hopefully, it will be a great start for your small family business.

Sutter ADU Construction Company

In comparison to other companies operating in California, A+ has a set of advantages.

We believe that the best customer is the one who participates in the construction, as it is their future property. While working on the project, you can offer our builders or managers some changes in the ADU. If we find these changes efficient and it will not hurt the final cost of the project, we can apply these changes to your ADU.

Before we start building, you have a fantastic opportunity to discuss all minute moments with our architects. Simply because your money will be paid, you have to pick the materials, be it wood or concrete, decorations, or furniture.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions — FAQ

How fast do you build an ADU?

The amount of time that we will have to spend on an ADU depends on many factors. In the construction process, we will have to work out the design, get proper permits, order quality materials, and many others. However, it will not take many years, so you can estimate that the ADU will be completed in 10 months.

Do we have to call you in case anything breaks?

Not at all! If you have a problem with the leaking roof, want to repair an appliance, or do any other small jobs around the unit, there are many other businesses providing such services to homeowners. Just a couple of phone calls, not necessarily to us, will allow you to fix things in the unit and do the proper maintenance further.

Do you operate only in our city, Dixon?

Actually, our company builds ADU all over California, from cities like Sacramento and San Francisco to North Highlands and Citrus Heights. You can ask around the city about us, and there is a high chance that you will find someone who has already worked with us on residential housing and can share their experience.

    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.

    They did an amazing job on our bathroom! Workers were friendly, clean and on time. They always kept in touch with us regarding anything that came up and even gave us updates on the work. Very responsive to my texts/calls if I had any questions. Will definitely use them again for any of our other remodel projects.

    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.
