What is a granny flat?

Granny Flats are commonly known as Accessory Dwelling Units additions or ADUs.  ADU additions on your property may or may not be attached to your home or garage, or may be a complete garage remodel into a living space.  Often if the property is larger enough, they are stand-alone structures. Basically you can have a studio apartment within your property.  This is perfect for those looking to have a rental on the property, or a place for grandparents or other family to stay.




Cost of Granny Flat/ADU Construction

The cost of installation of a new granny flat build varies by the size of the project, location (above garage vs attached to house vs independent), materials, and a number of other factors, but give us a call today and we can get you the most accurate quote for your project. We take pride in offering the best prices and fast, experienced construction services for your accessory dwelling unit.

These guys were really great, I had them come quote a job where they could have easily made a buck off of me, but instead they told me how I could easily do the project myself and save thousands. Feels rare to come across honesty like that! I would definitely trust this company to do an amazing job. I’ll be calling them for future needs!

We just completed a backyard remodel with Designs 4 You and are thrilled with the results. The turf is the best quality and looks terrific. Our pavers and border are solid with a concrete underlayment. Sharon, our project manager, really cares about his customers and is willing to get his hands dirty– he planted our shrubs himself! The team was efficient, on time daily, clean, and completed the work as promised.

The project took about 6 months from landscape design beginnings to yard completion. We had 3400+ cubic feet of cement removed (a huge portion butted up to our house and pool). The precision of pulling that up was amazing. We got to know the workers pretty well since they were here 5 days a week working from 7-4 for 3 months straight.

Our Project Manager, Sharon, took all of our ideas into consideration and delivered something beyond even what my wife and I could have imagined. The attention to detail, the speed with which they worked, and the suggestions that they offered to bring our yard to life was incredible. We don’t have much of a backyard due to space, and we wanted a space in our front yard for our son to play. We got flawless concrete and turf work, in addition to beautiful walls, a fence, and a gorgeous Santa Barbara style planter.

“We first hired the company for a small job, a walkway in the front of the house, and were so pleased that we hired them to redo the entire back patio. What makes them so good? First and foremost, Amit, the Project Manager, really knows his stuff. He communicates with us every step of the way, so there are no unpleasant surprises or delays. Amit also visits the site once or twice each day to make sure things are proceeding as scheduled. His crew are true professionals, and it is amazing to watch how quickly and skillfully they work.”
