Zeno in Oceanside wanted to build an accessory dwelling unit to live in so he could take advantage of incredible ocean views. He also liked the flexibility to rent out the ADU down the road. He had an architect draw up custom plans and then enlisted SnapADU for this highly technical build of a two-story unit, plus a basement, roof deck, and patio.
“SnapADU completed my ADU in 2021 and I couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome. Throughout the process, their team of personable, professional and dedicated employees and subcontractors helped me stay on budget, several times making helpful recommendations on substitutions I could make to keep costs down. The quality of workmanship was very high and I found all the subcontractors to be exceptionally competent. I highly recommend SnapADU. When you make your decision to spend this kind of time, money and resources on a complex project you gotta know you have the right team on the job. SnapADU is team you want.” – Zeno R.
The Oceanside ADU Guide
With SnapADU originally based in Oceanside, we know the city’s regulations and processes very well. Turnaround times at the city are faster than other nearby cities and we frequently obtain a permit within two rounds of review at the city. However, Oceanside ADU regulations are a bit more restrictive than some areas, for instance permitting 4′ setbacks for up to a 1000sqft unit; 1200sqft and two story ADUs are allowed but subject to setbacks for the underlying zone. Some of Oceanside is in the coastal zone and minor use permits are required in those areas, but may be processed in parallel with the building permit (so delays are minimal).
