Planning and Design

  • Determine the purpose, size, and layout of the ADU. Consider factors such as local zoning regulations, building codes, and the needs of potential occupants.

Check Local Regulations

  • Research local zoning laws and regulations related to ADUs. Determine if permits are required and what specific requirements must be met for construction.

  • Obtain Permits: If permits are required, submit the necessary applications to the local building department. This may include zoning permits, construction permits, and possibly environmental permits specific to ADUs.

Site Preparation

Foundation Construction

Wall and Roof Construction

  • Install the walls and roof of the ADU, including framing, sheathing, and roofing materials such as shingles or metal panels.

Door and Window Installation

  •  Install doors, windows, and any other openings in the ADU. Ensure proper sealing and insulation to maintain energy efficiency and comfort.

Interior Finishing

  • Finish the interior of the ADU according to its intended use. This may include insulation, drywall, flooring, and interior fixtures such as plumbing and electrical components.

Exterior Finishing

  • Finish the exterior of the ADU with siding, paint, or other cladding materials to protect against the elements and enhance aesthetics.

Utilities Installation
