ADUs are just starting to take off in popularity. As a result, many people are unaware of how much it costs to build one of their own. That is why we have put together an ADU cost estimate for you to reference and decide whether an ADU is right for you.
Not All ADUs Cost The Same
The first thing you need to know is that not all ADUs cost the same. In fact, very rarely will any two ADUs be the same because of everyone’s unique circumstances and requirements. For starters, there are different types of ADUs that all vary in cost. These types include:
- Internal ADUs that are a part of the interior of the primary home
- Garage conversion ADUs that are garages made into an ADU
- Detached ADUs that are stand-alone dwellings
- Basement conversion ADUs
- Attached ADUs that attach to the primary dwelling
- ADUs above a garage or workshop
You also need to take into consideration how big you want your ADU to be, as well as how fancy. Another thing to consider is the way you can build your ADU and whether you will need to do things like dig for storm drainage or add in sewage lines. All of this will add up and plays a huge factor in your overall cost.
Building A New Construction ADU
Building a new construction ADU will cost you more than doing a garage conversion. Since building an ADU is essentially like building a small house, there are a lot of steps involved in it. Design and planning can cost you around $9,500 for a 499 Sq ft unit. For the same unit, city fees can be around $4,000, construction and labor costs are around $130,000, and finish materials are around $30,000. That is in total around $180,000.
That is just a small 499 sq ft unit. Many people build units bigger than this, meaning your costs will go up.
2 Car Garage Conversion
A garage conversion is usually cheaper than new construction if the garage is in good shape. Design and planning can cost you around $6,500. For the same unit, city fees can be around $5,500, construction and labor costs are around $70,000, and finish materials are around $23,000. That is in total around $99,000.
