The abbreviation ADU stands for an accessory dwelling unit. This means a living space separated from the main house, where at least one more person can eat, sleep, wash, and do what an average dwelling presumes. A distinctive feature is that the ADU is either converted from an existing structure or is a new construction built from scratch, all on the same property plot as the main house.

The incentives behind building an accessory dwelling unit might be different. It could function as a granny flat, allowing you to care for an elderly person without having to travel far. Or, aside from granny flats, people in a small, single-family home may just get tired of the limited space they are forced to jostle in.

A+ Construction & Remodeling offers solutions for expansion and making effective use of your space. Our specialists are well aware of the accessory dwelling unit rules and regulations. We will not only bring your ADU project to life but also select quality materials and obtain all necessary permits.

ADU Truckee, CA: Accessory Dwelling Units

The benefits potentially derived from accessory dwelling units are not restricted solely to the expansion of your living space maximum size or storage space. A dwelling unit attached to the main house may bring forth several other virtues for the owner:

  • Rental income

Permitting someone to live on your property for payment can turn into a stable source of extra income, supplementing your salary. An additional $1,000-1,500 per month will pleasantly sag your pocket. Rent costs harshly depend on the location of the land piece. Moreover, to make people interested, the owners may want to make sure that the ADU has all the amenities.

  • Property value

If your plans include selling your house and moving to another city, then an ADU can contribute to multiple increases in its value. This investment pays off 100%. Therefore, it may be worth a little delay so that later you can reap the benefits of a successful investment for a long time.

  • Accommodation for relatives and friends

Accessory dwelling units are a great help for owners of single-family homes who need extra space from time to time. ADU may become a temporary refuge for a newlywed family that has not yet acquired a separate house. They can accommodate relatives in need of care or, vice versa, caretakers. Also, ADUs allow you to house out-of-state guests for a few days, avoiding the need to queue for the master bathroom.

  • Closer to the roots

An ADU can be a temporary solution if you don't want to leave your town community but can't afford a whole house in that area.

How ADU Builder Truckee, California, can help you?

When thinking of an ADU, your first concern is the law restrictions. Specialists from A+ know the ins and outs of the whole process; they differ on what is permitted and what requires extra approval from the local authorities.

Here are the types of ADUs allowed without extra compliance:

  • Detached ADU

This is a dwelling unit that is not connected by a wall and does not come into contact with the main building. To create such an extension, the desired design can be achieved by remodeling an existing ADU, converting another freestanding structure into an ADU, adding a floor or extra space, or building a new structure in the open space for the purposes of the ADU.

  • Junior ADU (junior accessory dwelling unit)

A junior accessory dwelling unit is a compact ADU with square footage that doesn't exceed 500 s.f. According to the accessory dwelling unit rules, it must be converted from the existing space only. Unpermitted units are subject to punishment.

  • Attached ADU

This type of accessory dwelling unit is connected by at least one wall to the existing primary space. Such an extension is formed by adding extra acreage to a residential building or to a garage directly adjacent to the house. It is possible to convert both existing residential areas and non-residential areas into ADUs.

  • Conversions

Accessory dwelling units of this type are a variation of existing units' transformation. You can transfer your garage or its non-usable part to a residential, livable space with minimal conveniences. Or use this space as a workshop for your hobbies, a storage space, a mini gym, etc.

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.

ADU Building Service Provider in Truckee

Why would you need a team of experienced professionals to build an ADU in your city? There are several answers to this question:

  1. A+ specialists know the laws and regulations 

Of course, if it's your parcel with a title, you can convert your garages or terrace as you wish. But are you sure that this area belongs to the area with residential purposes? Our professionals have been working in this area for a long time, so they have gained experience both in the building's implementation and in its support. They are aware of how to act in compliance with established rules, when additional approval from the authorities is needed, and which works are generally permitted and which are prohibited.

Fire safety, plumbing, and electricity installation – all these are areas where you need to be careful not to break the rules.

  1. Help to bring the completion date closer

If you have a full-time job, doing repairs yourself is time-consuming and expensive. If you are not a professional and do not know what materials are better and, where to purchase them at reasonable prices or what tools to use, where to get them, you can not only get stuck in repair work indefinitely but also lose money. First of all, because of the need to redo low-quality work.

  1. Free cost estimate in your town

If you are interested in ADU but not sure about costs, this offer from A+ Construction and Remodeling is right for you. Working on Truckee street, experts can come to your house at any convenient time to assess the upcoming work and inform you about the cost of materials, fees, and more.

    What is the average cost of a Truckee ADU?

    The price can range from $270,000 to about $400,000, depending on the area of work on the property site, the quality of materials, and the level of equipment of the ADU. It may also depend on the type of ADU (detached, attached, etc.). However, remember that the expenses will soon be offset by the rental costs.

    How many ADUs can I build on my piece of property in California?

    The rules and restrictions bound the number of possible ADUs on one plot. For a single-family house, it is one or two. For a shared house, it depends on the number of ADUs and the property already existing.

    What are the permitting rules for a Truckee ADU in California?

    The minimum lot size is not restricted for one-family houses as well as for houses shared by several families (duplexes, condos, etc.).

    The site where you plan to install the ADU must be designated for residential use. In addition, one house should already be present on the territory of your property or not be present but be in plans for subsequent construction.

    We recently completed a renovation of our Bathroom Vanities and Master Bath Shower and Floor. The result was a beautiful transformation and we are immensely pleased with the job that A+ Construction & Remodeling did, from start to finish. The crew and staff are real professionals and true craftsmen. I would not hesitate to call upon them in the future for any work that I may need done, and would certainly recommend them to others. A Job Well Done!

    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.

    A+ Construction and Remodeling guys are the best! They helped us make many home repairs to prepare for listing our old home and are helping us right now with the set up in new house. The production team was fast and professional, and I love my new remodeled kitchen. Wouldn't hire anyone else!
    Robert Ackerman
    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.
