Palo Alto was a city that was originally on the fence when it came to ADUs. Their old legislation was difficult to work around and small changes like moving the unit closer to the property line were met with swift rejection. However, Greg, founder of Goldbar Builders, knew that things were soon going to be a lot easier. When 2020 swung around with all new state regulations, he resubmitted plans on Jan 2nd and his plans were approved without a sweat. Just goes to show how important having a knowledgeable team is to build the ADU of your dreams.
The final cost of this project was about $340,000. Keep in mind, this ADU is in the Bay Area where construction and labor costs are going to be higher than in other regions.
