This one-bedroom Encinitas ADU lies less than a mile away from the beach! The homeowner saw the advantage he had, and decided to build a unit on his unused backyard space. Although the lot was small, the ADU was designed efficiently to get the most out of the space available. The ADU is used as a rental in this highly desirable area, to attract a high quality tenant at a premium price.


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.
