Murray Lampert Design, Build, Remodel: Things to Consider Before Adding an ADU in San Diego

SAN DIEGO, June 19, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — If you live in beautiful San Diego, you are lucky enough to live in a popular and dense area that still cares about its citizens’ housing opportunities. From aid to the homeless crisis to providing rental opportunities, and home equity increases for homeowners, San Diego homeowners have the flexibility in ADU builds that not all cities have. Dually noted is the high demand of relocating loved ones from far away to live within the same property as their family, ultimately creating a new San Diegan here to help our community prosper.

Rising above kitchen and bathroom remodels, ADU’s or Accessory Dwelling Units, have been topping the list for San Diego’s home improvement project since 2021 becoming the number one most requested project in construction. And it’s no wonder why! Previously referred to as Granny Flats, In-law Suites, and Casitas for their nod to bringing families closer together, these modeled structures have evolved to offer additional rental income in addition to adding square footage/ property value for the homeowner. 

If you’re thinking about building an ADU or wondering if your property is eligible within the City of San Diego or San Diego County jurisdiction- your curiosity has brought you to the right place. But be advised, codes and regulations change frequently. Over the past 4 years, Gregg Cantor, President/CEO of Murray Lampert Design, Build, Remodel, has continued to grow his relationships with city officials and individuals in the local building and permitting departments. These relationships allow his ‘4th Generations strong’ San Diego rooted company to quickly become apprised of any changing codes and get ahead of any building challenges that their ADU projects can face. Finding a trusted Design-Build partner like Murray Lampert Design, Build, Remodel is the foolproof, critical path to saving unnecessary back and forth time trying to decipher what the city needs, and when they need it.

At Murray Lampert Design, Build, Remodel, our best trait is listening, and we always start with asking “Why?”. Why do you want to build an ADU? Believe it or not, the ‘Why’ will influence specific differences in an ADU build like overall costs, ways to pay, etc. Not all build experiences with ADUs are created equal, and selecting a Design-Build company should be given careful consideration. Before determining ‘Who’ you partner with…. Let’s break this down in a palatable way using Why, What, When, and How.
