Orinda, CA
Project Timeline:
9 months

Goal: The property owner wanted to add a new ADU along with their existing plans for a pool they were in the process of designing and permitting.



Design Challenge: Our design team needed to coordinate the ADU design with the pool designer/contractor. In addition, existing easements on the property required surveys to locate prior to the approval of permits for the project.


Process and Solution: The owner worked with the same contractor to build the pool and the ADU so coordination between the two projects was relatively efficient. The owner was also very involved in every step of the design and permitting process, which was helpful in reducing the timeline for the project to under 9 months. In all, the owner started the design process with Housable in late March 2021, was able to start construction in August, and is on track for final completion in January 2022.
