A young family opted to bring grandma closer by building an ADU on their Poway property. An avid crafter and interior designer, they customized their floorplan to accommodate grandma's hobbies and design preferences.

Alongside the addition of a pantry, the family added numerous windows to take advantage of the natural light enjoyed in their back yard. A pathway connects the two homes, allowing independence alongside easy access. An island was added to the kitchen to double as a quilting table. On the exterior, the family opted to add board & batten siding to the front of the ADU to add visual interest and tie in with the primary home.

We love these stories of intergenerational living and feel so lucky to have played a role in bringing this family closer together!

Floor Plan:

SnapADU 2BR/1BA 28×27 Square

With plenty of kitchen space, this unit is great for entertaining. A kitchen with pantry is standard, or add an island for more seating & storage options. The photos here show an enlarged kitchen that was upgraded by the owner, as well as additional French doors, which pushed the sliding glass doors towards the kitchen.

Our quick take on Poway: Moderately ADU-Friendly


SnapADU has permitted or is in the process of permitting numerous projects within the city, and we know the city's regulations and processes very well. Turnaround times at the city are moderate. The City of Poway, unlike most other jurisdictions, requires architectural consistency between the ADU and the primary structure - in other words, the ADU siding, roof & trim must be consistent with the main residence. They will also require a floor plan of the existing residence to confirm there is not an existing attached accessory dwelling unit. Clients should anticipate regular permit fees, as plan check, building permit, and impact fees are not waived for ADUs >750 sqft (Impact fees will be proportional to the size of the primary dwelling). Poway requires in-person submissions, which does add some processing time and expense.
