Wanting a place that would provide extra income and could one day become a residence for her mother and/or herself, Patricia contacted New Avenue about adding a one-bedroom accessory dwelling to her property in Berkeley.
There were a few things that were very important to Patricia. She wanted to preserve the trees on the property. She also wanted to make sure the accessory dwelling unit would be accessible for her 85-year-old mother. A bathtub was a must-have.
A New Avenue partner architect created a design that would fulfill Patricia’s wants and needs.
The versatility of this design will serve its owners well for generations. The accessory dwelling will make a great home for a renter, and it’ll be a comfortable, accessible place for seniors like Patricia’s mother to live independently near loved ones.
The design and permitting costs came to $29,577.48. You can see the full design budget below.
