Building an ADU, however, can be a comprehensive and complex endeavor. No matter what type of additional unit you have envisioned, you will need to obtain a permit for it from the local department of building and safety before breaking ground.
The process of obtaining a permit, however, can be perplexing, frustrating, and exhausting for many homeowners. Therefore, it is advisable to seek the stewardship of an ADU expert who can guide you through the process.
