ADU- Santa Monica

Project Details:


ADU- Santa Monica


Santa Monica, California, United States, 90406


This project is built adjacent to the primary residential unit within the property. We began by arranging a series of meetings between the client and our in-house architect and interior design experts. Using a collaborative and proactive approach, we laid down various ADU ideas, formulated a plan, and developed the blueprint of the additional unit. When the details have been set and agreed upon, we began preparing the ADU’s foundation and footings. This is followed by framing and roof building, as well as kitchen and bathroom construction. We applied felt paper and metal roof flashing, and installed a shingle roofing that matches the design of the existing property. We also installed 4 energy-efficient windows, a pocket door, 2 doors in the interior, and a sliding door, 2 aluminum skylights, smoke detectors, LED lights, and an exhaust fan equipped with an occupancy sensor.
