Installing a modular Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) involves several steps, from planning and permitting to site preparation, delivery, assembly, and the setup of necessary services. Here’s a detailed description of the end-to-end installation process for our Bright Dove modular ADU:
Site Evaluation and Design:
Begin by assessing your property and identifying the ideal location for the ADU.
Collaborate with an architect or ADU specialist to design a modular ADU that meets your needs and complies with local building codes and regulations.
Obtain all necessary permits and approvals from your local government authorities. This may include zoning permits, building permits, and environmental clearances.
Clear the designated area of debris, trees, or any obstructions.
Ensure proper grading and foundation work, depending on the type of foundation (e.g., concrete slab, piers, or crawl space) chosen for the modular ADU.
Utilities and Services:
Extend or connect utilities such as water, sewer, electricity, and gas to the ADU site. Ensure all connections meet local code requirements.
Delivery and Assembly:
The modular ADU modules are built off-site in a factory-controlled environment.
Once completed, the modules are transported to your property and craned into place.
The modules are then secured and assembled on the foundation, creating the main structure of the ADU.
Roofing, siding, windows, and doors are typically installed at this stage.
Finish the interior of the modular ADU, including insulation, drywall, plumbing, electrical, and HVAC systems.
Install fixtures, appliances, and flooring as per your design specifications.
Complete the exterior finishing touches, such as painting, siding, trim work, and landscaping to blend the ADU with the existing property.
Schedule and pass all required inspections to ensure compliance with local building codes and safety standards.
Connect the modular ADU to utilities such as water, sewer, gas, and electricity.
Install a separate meter if required for utility billing.
Complete any final paperwork or inspections needed to close out the permits.
Occupancy and Services Activation:
Prepare the ADU for occupancy, including any necessary cleaning and inspections.
Activate essential services like internet, cable TV, and phone lines if desired.
Landscaping and Outdoor Spaces:
Landscape the area around the ADU to create outdoor spaces and access paths.
Install any necessary fencing, decks, or patios to enhance the ADU’s functionality and aesthetics.
Safety and Security:
Install smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors, and security systems as needed for safety and security.
Final Walkthrough and Handover:
Conduct a final walkthrough with the builder or contractor to ensure all work has been completed to your satisfaction.
Obtain any warranties, manuals, or documentation for the ADU and its components.
Ensure that you comply with all local, state, and federal regulations related to ADUs, including occupancy restrictions, rental agreements, and tax considerations.
Rental or Use:
If you plan to rent out the ADU, list it on appropriate rental platforms, and ensure it is in a condition ready for occupancy.
The process of installing a modular ADU can vary depending on the complexity of the project, local regulations, and specific design choices. It’s important to work closely with professionals, including architects, builders, and contractors, to ensure a smooth and successful installation process.
