One Story

Built for their son to later move into, this ADU in La Mesa has turned this property into a multigenerational home. Our standard 500 sqft plan was used, with no customizations, to create a cozy space for family to reside in. The ADU only needed one bedroom to fulfill its purpose, but the white finishes around the unit make the home seem large, light, and open. Classic stainless steel appliances keep the décor modern and clean, which will allow this ADU to serve many purposes over the years.

Floor Plan:

1BR/1BA 24×20 Square

This square ADU floor plan under 500 sqft features a full bath and kitchen, plus a separate bedroom. Popular for rentals and for family, this small unit is a great option for staying under $300,000 for the total project cost.
