As a smart homeowner, making the most out of your land is something that you should definitely consider. ADUs are one the best ways to do so. Also known as backyard houses or casita, Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) have some laws and enforcements to abide by. The state of California has recently changed and enforced the legal framework behind these units. As a professional home remodeling company in San Jose, Top Home Builders Inc. complies with all the laws to give you an ADU that solves your needs and gives you a good investment for the future.

What is an ADU?

If you are a new homeowner/landowner, there may be a question of “what is ADU?”. Well, there is a lot to know.

An ADU is a smaller home built on the same land as a large family home or a community home. While it is built on the same land, it is still a stand-alone unit with an independent bathroom, kitchen, living area and bedroom. While the most prominent benefit of an ADU is the amount of real-estate value it adds to your property, there are also other benefits of ADUs that make it a worthwhile investment:

Accessory Dwelling Unit Design

At Top Home Builders Inc., we use the most sound process for designing your ADU. We first do the groundwork like taking measurements, understanding your needs and agreeing on the design. Once this is done, we send the Accessory Dwelling Unit design to our factory where it is built. Since the unit is not built on your property, there are no major disruptions caused by installing an ADU. The offsite construction also speeds up the process and ensures that the structure does not get affected by the weather during its construction stage. We also offer you custom floor plans and wall systems so you get the best from your ADU.
