Dozens of San Diego Homeowners Have Trusted Us To Design and Build Their Dream ADU

After an intense process of finding the right Design Build company we choose Eco Minded Solutions for a large home remodel project for our Carlsbad home. From the initial consultation to the completion of the project, everything ran smoothly. The crew was always on time and often worked longer than expected to keep the project on track. Loving our newly remodeled home and would highly recommend Eco Minded!

Grant Tupin

Excellent experience from start to finish. We even augmented our initial design and Barry and team were accommodating. The workers were polite, respectful of neighbors and offer a number of helpful suggestions. In hindsight their suggestions improved the outcome of the project. Thorough clean up at the end and we recommend EMS with no hesitations.

Eco Minded Solutions designed and completed a remodel of our side yard. It had been a mess of bark chips and an old garden shed. They helped us create a great park-like atmosphere along our house with a lighted flagstone path. Eco Minded Solutions did a great job and were very responsive to our input. We would definitely use Eco Minded Solutions again.

Accessory Dwelling Unit Additions

An accessory dwelling unit (ADU) is defined as a second small dwelling located on the same grounds, or attached to a regular single-family home. ADUs include apartments over garages, multi-generational homes, tiny homes, basement and accessory apartments, secondary suites, granny flats, in-law suites, companion units, and backyard cottages.

There are three kinds of ADUs:

  • Interior – housed with the main dwelling (converted basement or attic space)
  • Attached – built as an addition to the main structure
  • Detached – a stand-alone structure located on the same property as the main structure

What Are the Various Uses for Accessory Dwelling Units?

There are many reasons people build ADUs — chief among them is the ability to gain extra income by turning the ADU into a rentable space. This could be a long- or short-term rental opportunity.

ADUs also can be used to provide private accommodations for overnight houseguests or to house a family member, such as an adult child or an aging parent. According to this study, the ability to age-in-place has created an increased need for ADUs, as has the need for housing that is accessible to individuals with disabilities.

In addition, ADUs make excellent spaces for home offices or studios. Carving out space for your passion without impacting your main living space is a great way to use the extra room.
