Factors that can add time or cost


If access to your property is limited, we will need a crane to properly place the unit. This can cost $20,000 or more. We will review options with you in your Virtual Site Visit.

Deep property

If your new ADU is placed farther from the existing home than normal, we will have to extend our standard utility inclusions. This increases material and labor costs. Any increases in cost will be analyzed in the initial property analysis.  

Soil conditions

Certain areas have different soil requirements and might require additional soil testing or a retaining wall. This is determined on a site by site basis and will be covered in your analysis.  


Required demolition of additional structures or very large trees will require additional equipment, labor, and disposal costs. This is reviewed in the analysis stage of the project.
