Andy and Jen were connected by their consultant to Ruland Design Group. Ruland Design Group is a women-led firm that has been designing stunning structures all over San Diego for over 20 years. Their vast portfolio includes multi-use structures, restaurants in historical buildings, and most importantly, ADUs.
After listening to the couple’s vision for their new backyard home, they proposed a spacious 500 sq ft one bedroom unit with a walk-in closet and a stackable washer and dryer. Given their experience working in the city, Ruland was quick to get permits approved and ready for building.
Finally, they were matched with ADU Builder Pros and began construction in early 2021.
Let’s break down the costs:
- Cost breakdown
- $23k Design and permitting
- $156k Construction
- $20k Landscaping and fencing
- $10k Appliances and furnishing
- Total cost of the whole project
Andy and Jen wrapped their project in October of 2021 and are planning on renting it to traveling nurses for mid-term leases (typically 3-9 months). Jen let her eye for interior design take the lead in putting together a gorgeous fully-furnished rental space that any person could feel at home in. They expect to rent it out for anywhere between $2,000 – $2,500.
