New Avenue recently finished a class San Francisco project – one of an estimated 30,000 additions or remodels in the city that are ready for an in-law apartment or accessory dwelling. An estimated 30,000 projects like this have an unpermitted kitchen making them illegal in-laws. This is a fully permitted project designed by one of our licensed architects and a local general contractor who’s business is a father/son/daughter team. They have been working in the neighborhood for over 50 years.
The floor plans, budget, a chart showing the payment schedule are all following. You can click and download the actual budget. This is a new home for the child of the owners in the most expensive city in the country (supposedly) for just over $200,000 – over 80% less expensive than almost any other new home in the city of San Francisco.
Yes – projects in San Francisco take 2.5 years to design and permit! San Francisco is BRUTAL! There was a hornet’s nest or angry neighbors who challenged this project repeatedly and caused several 6+ month delays during design and permitting. Ironically, if you don’t touch the envelope, then projects in cities like San Francisco have been our fastest projects ever and they can break ground in just a few weeks – not a few years – and they can be done in under four months.
