This client needed a second unit on their property to house their visiting kids since the main house was too small. Plus in the initial conversation we identified options this kind of second unit offers for future alternative uses. This was very attractive. They also needed a new foundation under the garage as well as a new driveway. The project had several hurdles to overcome. First we could not demolition and rebuild the garage because it was sitting in a non-conforming location that would not be able to be rebuilt in same location. This would also cause problems with the second unit we wanted. Second the client wanted to put the new unit as far back on the property as possible. During discovery we found out we actually could build in the set back with some very careful planning and layout. Finally the client wanted the design of the second unit as well as the garage to match the design features of the home down to small details. After we delivered the concept and cost and time line that were acceptable we entered into a build contract.
You can see that we achieved all the clients’ objectives. Notice the details. This space is very warm and inviting and complements the home perfectly. If you are thinking about a second unit ask us for this clients contact information and ask the great question “ do you love these guys more now that the job is completed than you did at the beginning?”
