A family in Livermore approached New Avenue with the goal of adding an accessory dwelling unit (ADU) to their existing property. They wanted a one-room, one-bath living space for the owner’s parents.
With an eye toward efficiency, they opted for an open studio that could do double duty as a living area and sleeping quarters.
The family also paid careful attention to style, selecting exterior materials that would meet the city’s requirements and blend in well with the neighborhood.
Noting that the home’s residents are aging, the family asked for easy-to-use storage and space for daily activities such as playing the piano.
The total cost for this project was $143,071.91. You can see the full budget below.
