ADU Options Personalized to Suit Your Goals

Sit down with our design team to explore ADU options that reflect your lifestyle and enhance the usability of your residential property.

We’ll work diligently alongside you to design a one-of-a-kind space that’s finished to your liking and is built to withstand the test of time.

Some of our most popular accessory-dwelling designs include the following:

Garage ADU

Is an over-the-garage ADU something you’re considering? This type of ADU, often called a garage apartment or carriage house, is a fantastic way to add value to your property and create additional living space.

It’s essential to consider your existing garage’s structural integrity and foundation strength. It needs to support the additional weight of a living space above it. You’ll also need to think about access to this space—typically, an external staircase is required.

Utilities are another critical consideration. You’ll need to plan for electrical, plumbing, and heating systems that are independent of or integrated adequately with those of your main house. Let our builders guide the way in creating a feasible dwelling over your garage.

Junior Accessory Dwelling Unit (JADU)

Our expertise in Fresno’s specific zoning requirements and ADU regulations allows us to design and build JADUs that meet legal standards and fulfill your unique housing requirements. We take pride in our commitment to quality craftsmanship and attention to detail, ensuring your JADU is built to be functional and aesthetically pleasing.

Our team is skilled in maximizing the utility of compact spaces, creating comfortable and efficient 500-square-foot living areas that enhance property value. We understand the importance of integrating your JADU with your existing property, ensuring seamless design continuity.

Detached ADU

Building a detached ADU offers numerous benefits, including added privacy, the potential for rental income, and a boost in your property’s overall value. As a detached structure, it provides a separate living space from your primary residence, ideal for guests, tenants, or family members who want their own space. It’s also a versatile solution to accommodate a home office, studio, or retreat.

Choosing us as your builders for this project means entrusting your ADU to a team with a track record of excellence. We specialize in creating custom ADUs that are functional, stylish, and tailored to your choices.

Attached ADU

Constructing an attached accessory dwelling unit is a great way to increase your living space while maintaining the overall design of your property. Integrating your ADU with your primary residence means easier access and shared utilities, which can simplify construction and daily living. This unique blend of functionality and convenience offers the best of both worlds.

Why not partner with a team that excels at integrating new structures with existing architecture?

We’re Well-Versed in ADU Construction Requirements

Start your ADU construction on the right foot by collaborating with a small home builder who creates significant property value improvements. We have what it takes to help you navigate zoning requirements, secure building permits, and meet foundation and electrical requirements.

ADU Zoning

ADU zoning laws determine where an accessory dwelling can be built, its size, and how it can be used. Zoning regulations also cover how many ADUs can be constructed on a single property and their placement relative to your primary residence. Having a good handle on these laws is essential to ensure your new building fits into the city’s broader urban plan, and you’re not in danger of being penalized or prohibited from moving forward with your project.

We’re here to help ensure zoning isn’t a problem. Call us today to learn more about our experienced builders and what we do to make planning your build as hassle-free as possible.

ADU Permits

Applying for ADU permits is a critical step that serves multiple important purposes. Obtaining a permit ensures your ADU project complies with local building codes and zoning regulations, which are in place to guarantee safety, structural integrity, and community standards.

These codes cover a range of considerations, including:

  • Fire safety
  • Electrical
  • Plumbing systems
  • Structural design
  • …and more!

By securing the necessary permits, you demonstrate adherence to these standards and protect future inhabitants of the ADU. Let us take care of the permitting process on your behalf to take all the stress out of submitting the correct forms to the proper authorities.
