“I talked to SnapADU maybe 30 times throughout the process… and then there was this beautiful home in my yard.” – Zach Adamson
This family purchased the property and began renovations on the main home, while working with SnapADU on the design and permitting for a 3BR/2BA ADU. Once the main home renovation was completed, the family moved back onto the property and watched the rest of the build on their ADU. The project was in the coastal zone and also included septic, which had to be coordinated across both the local jurisdiction and the County of San Diego.
“SnapADU was really good on the communication and just keeping you on track with the project. They were on budget, on time… I think they even came in ahead of time of what they originally projected. You can just tell everyone is trained really well. Every single team member along the way had a great attitude, was all over it, great on communication. I don’t know if I got the special treatment or what, but it felt like it, so it was awesome.”

The Encinitas ADU Guide
We have many projects in Encinitas and we know the city’s regulations and processes very well. Encinitas has some of the lowest permitting fees in the area, averaging just $2-4 per square foot of space for ADUs. We are also seeing fewer requirements for minor use permits in the coastal zone. Encinitas has also put out “permit ready” plans (PRADU), which some homeowners have found helpful as a starting place for their ADU designs. The greatest attribute of Encinitas is that nearly all plan check and building permit fees have been waived for ADUs. Also, while much of Encinitas is located in the coastal zone, ADUs are typically exempt from extensive coastal permit requirements, meaning there is little to no added time or cost for coastal.
