Comfortable ADU with Walk-In Bathtub in Oceanside
Glenwood Drive, Oceanside, CA 92057
Homeowner Story: Bring aging family closer
This client wanted to provide a comfortable, secure home for her aging mother-in-law, who is selling her home to relocate into the new ADU in Oceanside. Working with a tight budget, they selected the build-ready SnapADU 1BR/1BA 560 sqft L-Shaped plan. They chose our standard finishes and provided their own plumbing fixtures, including a Whirlpool Massage System walk-in bathtub. This soil on this property has a lot of clay in it, so excavation was more challenging, which we factored into the budget to ensure no surprises for the client.
1BR/1BA 30×21 L-Shape
Perfect for a family member or a rental, this one bedroom unit features plenty of living space, plus a large bedroom with ensuite bath.
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).
