An Update to Our Custom ADU Build in The Avenues

June 16, 2023

We're excited to take you through the construction process of our latest completed Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) right here in beautiful Salt Lake City, Utah. Over a span of nine months, we crafted a one-bedroom, one-bath ADU, spanning approximately 650 square feet. Join us as we share the story of this project, highlighting the careful planning, attention to detail, and dedication that went into creating a stunning living space that perfectly complements our client's primary residence.

Our project started with a personal connection and a shared vision. Our clients had a clear idea of their dream ADU, and we were honored to be entrusted with bringing it to life. From the beginning, we fostered open lines of communication and collaboration, ensuring that their needs, preferences, and lifestyle were at the forefront of our design process.

One crucial aspect of this project was navigating the zoning and planning requirements. We understand that this can be a time-consuming process, which is why we worked diligently to streamline it as much as possible. Though it took approximately three months to secure the necessary permits, we remained in constant communication with our clients, keeping them informed every step of the way.

With the permits in hand, it was time to delve into the exciting design phase. Our team of experienced architects and designers worked closely with our clients, taking inspiration from their primary residence to create a seamless harmony between the ADU and the existing structure. Every detail, from the exterior finishes to the interior layout, was carefully considered to ensure that the ADU blended effortlessly with the surrounding aesthetics.

As the construction phase commenced, our team's expertise and attention to detail shone through. We take great pride in our workmanship, and it was essential for us to convey that same dedication to our clients throughout the entire project. With their trust in us, we meticulously executed each stage, from the foundation to the roof, ensuring that every corner of the ADU met our high standards of quality and craftsmanship.

Creating a home is about more than just physical construction—it's about transforming a space into a haven that reflects the unique personality and style of its occupants. In the final stages of the build, we worked closely with our clients to add personalized touches and finishing flourishes, such as selecting paint colors, cabinetry, and fixtures. This collaborative process allowed us to create a space that felt truly custom-made for them.

As we wrap up this project, we couldn't be prouder of the end result—a beautiful custom ADU that not only meets our client's needs but also surpasses their expectations. Throughout the nine-month process, we cultivated a strong personal relationship with our clients, fostering open communication and mutual respect.
