Granny Flat Plans

Granny flat plans come in a variety of sizes and configurations.  There are different types of granny flats, or Accessory Dwelling Units, different ways to go about obtaining granny flat plans, and a range of costs to go with it.  Granny flat plans also have different regulations depending on where you are located and your local jurisdiction’s laws and building codes.  A lot goes into planning granny flat plans and getting them approved is not always as easy as it sounds.  In this article, we’ll go over the basics of granny flat plans and the easiest way to obtain them.

Obtaining Granny Flat Plans

Architects are often the ones to create accessory dwelling unit floor plans, which is the technical name for a granny flat.  Architects have the training and education to properly build a structure, like a granny flat, while maximizing its functionality and appeal.  However, qualified designers and drafters are also able to create granny flat plans. 

Engineers often work alongside the architect to provide calculations necessary to ensure the structural integrity of the ADU or granny flat.  Additionally, an interior designer is usually involved to help choose the finish materials and color scheme.  Oftentimes, obtaining granny flat plans does not involve just one person.  Usually, it involves a whole team of trained professionals in order to produce any type of ADU plans that will be approved by your city.  This can end up adding up to quite a high expense for homeowners just to obtain granny flat plans. 

In our area in Orange County, CA, obtaining granny flat plans that are desirable, functional, and able to be submitted to a city for approval can cost upwards of tens of thousands of dollars.  When you add that onto the construction cost to build the granny flat, the price can become too much for some homeowners.  Superior ADUs saw this problem occurring and decided to take action.
