A Step-by-Step Guide to Building Your ADU ProjectBook a free consultation
At ADU.Works, we provide a simple and straightforward process to help you build your dream ADU.
During the Discovery Call, we will get to know you and your ADU needs. Our ADU Specialist will provide you with an overview of our models and processes and schedule a showroom visit to discuss the next steps.
Our team will conduct a site assessment to determine the feasibility and placement options for your ADU, including evaluating site-specific costs. We will also research your property's jurisdiction and permit requirements and include this information in the feasibility report. This report will also provide an estimate of the total cost of the ADU on your property.
After the site assessment, we'll create a feasibility report to guide the following of the build process. The report will provide an estimated additional cost based on our base cost of the unit and include a layout of the proposed ADU, along with an estimate of any site-specific work needed to complete the project. Additionally, the report will be used to prepare the engineering of your ADU.
Once you've decided to move forward, we will provide you with a Build Agreement that outlines the entire process from pre-development and engineering to the delivery of your ADU. This will include specific site-specific costs, the estimated timeline to complete the project, fee schedules, permit requirements, and the estimated cost of your ADU.
Let’s have a chat and know how we could assist you in building your ADU.
SIPs are made up of insulating foam cores sandwiched tightly between two structural facings that are designed and precisely manufactured off-site. Once these are completed, it only takes 30-60 days of onsite work and one contractor to complete your ADU.
A helical pile is a steel shaft with helices that is screwed into the ground to help anchor the ADU to the soil. This process requires only small machinery and a team of 2-3 people to complete in about 3 days.
Pre-engineered plan sets are ready-to-build diagrams which allows for quick, reliable & simple construction process – streamlining the need for inventorying materials or planning.
