Where do I start?

Figuring out where to start can certainly be a challenge, especially if you are new to the process.  What we like to do with our clients is enter into a pre-construction agreement to help smooth the way with the process.  There are a lot of unknowns that can come up when dealing with an ADU build depending on what kind of build you are looking at.  Whether it's a new build in the unincorparated areas of the county or a garage conversion in the city we an help streamline the process from planning through permits for you!
