It’s an exciting time for home additions and accessory dwellings. Home ownership is changing, and we’re thrilled to be a part of it.
Here, New Avenue designer Jeff shares what he’s been working on. From an ADU with a loft to a house lift and addition, there’s a lot to be excited about here.
An ADU with a loft makes the most of backyard space (with room for outdoor fun!)
A Berkeley house lift adds 970 square feet: space for a new master suite and accessory dwelling.
The owners of this Berkeley home wanted to keep their house, but they needed more room. The solution? Lift the house and build out the space beneath it.
Here’s the floorplan for the lower floor. It’s a 410-square-foot addition to the main home and a 560-square-foot ADU that can be rented out or used as a separate living space for family.
The ADU has a full kitchen with dining area, a living room, a bedroom, and a full bathroom, along with ample closet space. The addition includes a master suite, utility closet, and family room with a staircase leading up to the rest of the home.
This lift plus addition is an excellent solution for someone who wants to double the livable space in their home. It gives the family more space in the main home and adds an accessory dwelling.
This studio ADU in Berkeley provides versatile space inside and an absolutely gorgeous exterior.
This design shows just how much you can do in a few hundred square feet. The floorplan below shows a main room with kitchen, room for dining, and a Murphy bed. It’s the perfect place for a single adult or couple of any age, and it makes a delightful guest house.
This ADU in Sonoma has a modern design and makes creative use of a rectangular shape.
This ADU has a main living area, plenty of room for storage, and a bathroom with a double vanity. It combines simple lines with clever angles to make an interesting layout. The artistic, modern exterior is a real eye-catcher.
There’s a lot you can do to get more from your home. An addition or an ADU will add usable space to your property, giving you additional income or more space to enjoy life.
