Construction hit a few snags due to the pandemic, but their handpicked general contractor, Kamal Hyder of SFBay ADU, kept the project cruising along while also keeping the project on budget. After an exciting two years, the ADU was finished, including the gorgeous landscaping for the outdoor area done by Kamal and his team. Hurray! Let’s do a quick cost breakdown:
- $15,385 Design
- $1,594 Prep Work
- $4,393 Permit Fees
- $191,469 Construction
- $23,110 Landscaping
Grand Total: Approx. $236,000
For a Bay Area project with high-end finishes, not bad!
They were originally going to use the project as a rental for passive income, but the ADU couldn’t have been completed at a better time. Their daughter has recently decided to return home and the ADU is all hers to enjoy.
A new home isn’t the only great outcome of this whole journey. Cecilia was so impressed with how easy Maxable made the whole process that she decided to join our team as a Maxable consultant! Who better to help other homeowners wanting to embark on an ADU endeavor than someone who has done it themselves? Cecilia has already helped dozens of homeowners kickstart their projects (and some are just months away from completion too) and she can help you too.
