New Avenue is pleased to announce the addition of a new partner architect in Pasadena. Here’s his current project.
The client approached New Avenue with the vision of creating passive rental income by adding an accessory dwelling unit (ADU) to his property.
The architect wanted to maximize allowable square footage to comply with zoning regulations for allowable livable area and occupiable space. The design was constrained to match the existing home’s architectural style and height. This is more of an integration and expansion than a new design. The design includes three beds and two baths for a 995-square-food, one-story, detached ADU.
The project started in October 2017. The client is engaging in a construction agreement as of April 2018, and we expect this to be a seven-month build.
The permits were move involved for this project than they are for others. We had to get permits from building and safety, zoning, public works, and the fire department.
The design costs were about $14,500. The construction costs are on track to be $ 250,000. However, the bid process is not yet complete.
