Types Of ADUs We Do

Detached ADU: Detached ADUs add the most value to your property. You are getting a secondary self-contained living space completely separated from your main house but under the same title.

Attached ADU: This type of ADU offers less privacy and falls under the ADU Ordinance size restrictions (can’t be larger than 50% of your original home size).

Garage Conversion ADU: Having your garage converted into a studio flat is the most budget-friendly option and the most popular way to make extra rental profit out of an ADU in Sacramento.
