San Francisco is a beautiful, historic, unique, busy, diverse, and sometimes crazy place, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. All that character makes it a popular place to live. That’s why accessory dwellings (ADUs) are popping up left and right. If you’re interested in bringing in rental income or building a new space for your family in San Francisco, you’ll need the best ADU builder in the Bay Area.
Why do you need the best accessory dwelling company?
You need an ADU company that knows San Francisco and state law.
There’s no way around it—building an accessory dwelling or addition is a complicated process. There are different rules in every city, and they’re all governed by state law. When getting permits for your accessory dwelling project, you could run into two major problems:
- You don’t know what you don’t know. You’re not an ADU expert, and you shouldn’t have to be. When you hire someone who has been through San Francisco’s permitting process over and over again, you get an expert who can be your advocate at City Hall. New Avenue’s designers are experienced. They know who to talk to, what to ask, which permits to get, and how to get them.
- The city doesn’t always understand the rules. Sadly, it happens. The city officials are incredibly busy, and they’re not always up to date on every single rule at the local and state level. New Avenue’s experts can save you tens of thousands of dollars because they know the process.
You want to avoid unpleasant surprises.
San Francisco is a city of surprises. But when you’re building an accessory dwelling, in-law apartment, or backyard cottage, surprises are the last thing you want.
Unexpected changes, fees, delays, and compliance issues can end your project, leaving you with a big hole in the ground (or your house).
Only the right team can make your project go smoothly. New Avenue has that team: the best designers, contractors, and project managers in San Francisco. They’re fully vetted and have tons of experience in San Francisco.
You need an easy way to start, manage, and finish your accessory dwelling project.
