Additions and ADUs sound deceptively straightforward. Not in the Bay Area. Not with current building codes. Not with current labor costs. We navigate you through the whole process to avoid costly mistakes.

Contractors make money by billing homeowners for their services. The bigger the bill – the better for the contractor. They gain nothing by saving your money.
Why should you hire us?
First, we know where to start. We will guide you from start to successful completion of your project.
Second, there is no conflict of interest. Our fee is fixed and depends on scope, not on budget. We charge a success fee for saving your budget.

A detailed quote from a qualified contractor
Thanks for heads up, Homepie! How would I know that adding an outlet required by the current building code would lead to rewiring and a complete change of the distribution panel?
