It’s incredible to think how a simple plan can snowball into a much larger project that better fits your needs. Their ADU clocks in at 575 sq ft (735 sq ft if you include the loft space.)
As of right now, the couple is using their new ADU as added living space to their existing home. This is definitely a more cost-effective option than uprooting the whole family to move into a larger home. Plus, they have a home ready for an elderly parent or visiting family when the time comes.
Let’s break down the costs:
- Cost breakdown
- $17k Design
- $8k Permitting
- $250k Construction
- $25k Landscape, paving, and upgrades to main house
- Total cost of the whole project
The homeowners started working with their architect in August of 2020 and received their permits in March of 2021. Construction began in April 2021 and finally concluded in October of 2021. That’s just over a year for the whole project. Not bad considering the magnitude of this project!
