Two Story

Downsize and cashflow! To maximize her lot in Normal Heights, this client built an ADU to move into herself so she could rent out the front house for additional income.

By building a two story ADU over a garage, she took advantage of the space available without compromising any square footage. An external staircase allows access to the ADU. The front door opens to an airy living space complete with a full kitchen, stacked washer-and-dryer, and bathroom with hall access. The kitchen and bathroom feature gray cabinets and white quartz countertops with black fixtures. All appliances are stainless steel, serving to round out the beautifully modern décor found throughout the home.

The City of San Diego ADU Guide

SnapADU has built and is in the process of building dozens of granny flat projects within the City of San Diego. As such, we know the city’s ADU regulations and processes very well. Turnaround times at the city are drastically improving, with permitting taking 3-5 months in most cases (down from 8-10 months a year ago).

Of note, San Diego promotes the building of more ADUs through the affordable ADU bonus program. Some of San Diego is in the coastal zone, which will add additional time and cost to the permitting process for granny flats.
