Building an ADU in Foster City
Recent changes in California state law have made building an ADU easier than ever before. A new state bill has limited the ability of local city governments from over complicating the permitting process for building an ADU.
It might be worth knowing that you can build an ADU if your property is zoned R-1, R-2, R-1/PD, R-T, R-3, R-3/PD, R-4, R-4/PD. Most single family homes are in either zone R-1 or R-2. Other important requirements include the following:
There are 4 types of ADUs you can build on a single-family lot, these are the specifics:
You can build up to 1 detached ADU and one Junior ADU granted that there isn’t already an ADU on the property.
If you’re a DIYer, visit the Foster City ADU page for more instructions but if you’re looking to hire a professional team to build your ADU, we at Home Quality Remodeling would be honored to work with you.
We typically start with visiting your property to get a clear idea of what we have to work with and give you a price and timeline for building your preferred ADU. Then, we’ll schedule a time for you to meet with your 3D architecture designers to create drafts of the ADU. Once the plans are created, we’ll submit the plans for approval and get the necessary permits. From that point, we’re ready to break ground and start building.
HOAs are great for protecting your property’s value but can be tough if you’re looking to do any exterior renovations or additions. Note that exterior renovations such as painting, fencing, decks, and roofing projects are typically what your HOA will need to approve. Each HOA board has their own revision requirements. Some HOAs may require drawn plans or blueprints for proposed renovations.
If you’re renovating a home in Foster City that’s part of an HOA, our project management team can help you navigate the process and be an advocate for your goals.
Other than HOA communities, Foster City’s building council has also adopted requirements for specific upgrades and renovations. For a full list visit the citywide policy page. A professional general contracting team should not only handle the construction side of things but should also be able to navigate your city’s unique legislation.
