The Benefits of Adding an ADU or Granny Flat to Your Property

ADUs are often called granny flats, in-law units, backyard cottages, second dwellings, or guest houses because they are frequently used to create a dedicated living space for family members; however, they can also be used to create additional rental income. ADUs can range in size from a 500 square foot studio up to a 1,200 square foot 3-bedroom, 2-bath house. They can be attached to or detached from a primary residence, or built by converting a garage.

The primary requirement for a unit to qualify as an ADU is that it provides complete, standalone living space for one or more persons. This means that an ADU needs to have its own entrance, kitchen, bathroom, and living area. If you want to make sure that your new construction project meets local ADU guidelines, give us a call. As your ADU contractor, Velarde Builders can completely manage your project, including architectural design, planning, site preparation, and complete construction, build from plans that you provide, or handle specific portions of the build, such as the foundation and frame.

Featured Review

Though we may not know much about construction, we know what it feels like to be in good hands with a company that has your best interest and satisfaction in mind. This was quite an experience from day 1, one that I will never forget due to the gratitude I feel towards Ramon Velarde and the great crew for their expertise, kindness, and above all exemplary professionalism.

Roslyn Z., San Diego, CA Via Yelp

We used Velarde Builders to expand our backyard patio concrete deck by 500 sf. Due to this being a "smaller" job, we got very few answers to requests for bids and when we did, it was a very unprofessional bid. However, Ramon Velarde provided a professional bid with drawings/pictures and full scope of work with a progress payment schedule. Their workmanship was excellent and their workers were courteous. They cleaned up after each day and were prompt. I highly recommend Velarde Builders.
