How much does it cost to build an ADU?

If you’ve done your research, you’ll know that most companies provide a wide cost spectrum for ADUs - anywhere between $50,000 - $200,000+*. This is because the cost of building an ADU can significantly decrease or increase depending on a range of factors, including: your design specifications, whether the ADU is attached or detached, engineering requirements, permit costs, construction costs and a range of other factors. The good news is, when you work with Refresh, we will factor all of these costs into an original cost estimate and can provide you with a fixed quote before the project begins. We can also advise you on the best ways to stay within your planned budget. 

*Costs are rough estimates and are subject to change. Please consult your local Refresh Renovations Consultant for a cost estimate accurate to your project requirements.

What are some common approaches to ADU builds?

In most circumstances, homeowners will build ADUs as an accessory apartment to accommodate friends, family, guests or tenants. Primarily, you will need to decide whether or not you want it to be attached to your house or detached. For some, a home extension is the best option. For others, particularly those who want more space and privacy, a detached unit is the best solution. Many homeowners choose to renovate their garages into ADU units - either as a complete conversion or by adding a second storey living space above the garage.
