ADU Projects That Can Break Your Budget

Let there be no doubt, ADU fever is everywhere and growing curiosity looms by the day across the Nation. Some States like California and Oregon are aggressively passing laws that make it easier to add a BACKYARD HOME to your property while others remain in limbo still trying to wrap their arms around what appears to be the construction Zeitgeist of this new era.

Please take a few moments to click on the link above and find out what your alternatives are and how they might impact your budget and influence your buying decision. 

However, be very careful about the path you choose should you decide to pursue this opportunity. You do have options and we suggest that you choose them wisely. 

  • Know the ADU laws in your state
  • Know the building regulations within your local jurisdiction
  • Know your financing options
  • Know your budget
  • Know what type of construction you want.
  • Know what will fit on your lot/parcel
  • Most importantly know the contractor and people you're dealing with

If you follow these very important prerequisites you will have a much more successful experience. Don't get yourself stuck in a mess you can't get out of because you didn't make the right decisions.

Whatever you decide to do should you wish to move forward with your project we at CREST 'BACKYARD' HOMES wish you the best of luck and may you have many good years of experience.

Good morning, John... great "primer" on how not to go over budget on an ADU. Lots of this applies to building homes in general.

Absolutely spot on Nina Hollander The age ole adage and it's often so true. Take the price your contractor gives you and double it. I'd laugh at this if it weren't often true. We have a 6 step process in vetting and qualifying any/all potential clients.

Hi John DL Arendsen  - With short and long term rentals becoming a way to help pay a mortgage, ADUs are becoming more popular than ever.  The key point is making sure you know your local laws and regulations BEFORE you begin!
