Why We Love Building Granny Flats

We get to help people and families come together... to live closer and be part of each others' lives daily, to bring aging parents closer to grandkids, to give handicapped dependents more independence, or to give young adults a chance to raise their kids in a community they might not normally be able to afford.

We also get to help people bring in rental income... money that helps them pay their mortgage, travel more, work less, or even retire sooner. We offer them flexibility, since ADUs are versatile and meet the demands of evolving lifestyles.

We plan and design with each client to make the best lifestyle choice for their family. What size ADU? Where on their property should it go? Which floor plan should they choose? How much will it cost? Does it make sense? We have respect for our clients and want to help them as they are considering options for their unique situation.
