Our homeowners in South San Francisco recently retired and are looking for more space on their property. Their plan is to live in a new, comfortable ADU while maximizing rental income by renting out the main house. They had previously met trepidation from the city and had been discouraged by prefab options. They wanted a cost-effective ADU that was built to fit them and after seeing Cottage's design and estimate, decided to build their dream ADU project.
The couple was looking for a spacious 2 bedroom ADU, in an efficient footprint to optimize on cost. Meanwhile, the space needed to fit the features of a single family home - space for queen beds, full closets, and full size bathroom elements.
Ultimately, in an efficient 720 sq ft, we were able to include 2 full bathrooms as well as a walk in closet. Key features include a french door entry and a skylight above the kitchen to maximize the open concept living area with plenty of light.
Ultimately, the homeowners went with large picture windows and clean lines on the exterior for a modern look for the ADU. A personal favorite feature is the sliding glass door that connects the unit to a private outdoor space for that famous California outdoor living.
