Process & Timeline

We offer a streamlined and simplified construction process that results in exceptional build quality with clear communication along the way.

Using the information you provided on the contact form we conduct a feasibility study to see if your property is a good fit for the 288 and other ADUs.

If it looks feasible, we’ll reach out to schedule a site visit with one of our ADU experts. We will discuss the project with you and by the end of the meeting, you will have an all-in price.

Our design professionals will meet with you to discuss the goals of your project, help you orient the building on your property, make your selections, and discuss any upgrade options.

SQFT Studios will submit the permit and manage all aspects of the process. An estimated permit cost is included in the price.
