Accessory dwellings, ADUs, in-law apartments, backyard cottages, granny flats…They go by about a million different names (some of which aren’t exactly ideal). Whatever you want to call it, it’s a major project, and that can mean a lot of risk. That’s why using the best ADU company on the San Francisco Peninsula is so important.
Here’s what you need to know when looking for an accessory dwelling builder in Mountain View, Menlo park, San Mateo, Pacifica, South San Francisco, and the surrounding areas.
Accessory Dwellings are Hot Right Now. Use Caution in Hiring.
California legislation is making it easier than ever to build an ADU on your property. At the same time, accessory dwellings are becoming more and more popular because people are realizing just what they can do. (We’re talking extra income, living closer to family, and having more space to live our lives.)
That popularity means there are newcomers on the scene, claiming to be ADU experts when they don’t really know the area. You don’t want an architect who doesn’t fully understand accessory dwelling permits in Palo Alto, Mountain View, or Sunnyvale, or a contractor who has no connections with suppliers in the area.
New Avenue has been working on the Peninsula for years. Our designers, contractors, and project managers all know exactly what needs to be done in every city on the San Francisco Peninsula. They have connections, and they’re always using them to help their clients’ projects go smoothly.
You Can Get Everything You Need in One Place.
It’s a great time to be building, because today’s technology makes it simple to manage your accessory dwelling project online. You have to hire the right company, though. Not everyone offers a one-stop shop where a homeowner can research costs, review and sign contracts, communicate with the construction team, review designs, keep track of permits and paperwork, monitor the budget, and pay invoices.
New Avenue’s system does all of that, and you can get started with it for free.
We even connect you with the right people for your team. Designers, architects, landscapers, contractors…we have a wide network of vetted professionals, each of whom we trust to get your accessory dwelling built on time and on budget.
You Can Find Out What Projects Like Yours—REAL Projects—Cost.
If your ADU company won’t tell you what other clients paid for their projects, you’re not talking to the best. Before you start your accessory dwelling project, you’ll want to know what it might cost. To do that, you need to see real numbers.
New Avenue has been designing and building ADUs on the San Francisco Peninsula for years, and we’ll show you actual budgets from actual projects like yours.
Like this backyard ADU in Mountain View.
Or this accessory dwelling in Menlo Park.
Or this addition-style ADU, called “Grandma’s House” by its owners, in South San Francisco.
At New Avenue, we value transparency. It’s part of what makes New Avenue the best ADU company in California. Ask us anything.
