Consultation: Laying the Groundwork for Your Tiny Home

The first step in any successful ADU project is a thorough consultation. At CASK Construction, we’ll discuss your vision for your ADU, assess your property, and determine the best approach for your project. As expert tiny house builders, we’ll also explain the city requirements and work with you to obtain the necessary permits and approvals, ensuring your project complies with local regulations.

Should you want to move forward with your tiny home project, we’ll create a pre-construction services agreement. This agreement allows for better decision-making and a smoother process. 

The pre-construction process assembles our team of experts including:

  • Architects
  • Sub-contractors
  • Structural engineers
  • Interior designers
  • Landscape architects

We breakdown labor and material costs for the final budget of your custom project, and begin working on your design plans and construction specifications.

Tip: Be prepared with a clear idea of your tiny home goals and preferences, as well as any questions or concerns you may have. This will help us better understand your needs and provide tailored guidance throughout the process.

Design: Bringing Your Tiny Home Vision to Life

Once we have a clear understanding of your project’s parameters, our team of tiny home builders will create a customized design that meets your unique needs and preferences while adhering to city requirements. 

As part of our pre-construction agreement, we’ll also provide you with:

  • Drawings of your project
  • Specifications 
  • Allowances
  • Architecture
  • Design

Our design plans will allow you to visualize your ADU before construction begins. We guarantee that if you don’t feel comfortable moving forward at any point during this pre-construction process, we do not need to continue on to the next step which is building your ADU.

Tip: Be open to suggestions and feedback from our design team. Our expertise in ADU projects and tiny house design can help you make informed decisions and ensure your design is both functional and aesthetically pleasing.

Construction: Building Your Dream Tiny Home

With a solid design in place, our team of tiny house builders will begin the construction process. At CASK Construction, we pride ourselves on our attention to detail and commitment to quality workmanship. Throughout the construction phase, we’ll keep you updated on the progress of your project and address any questions or concerns you have along the way.

Tip: Maintain open communication with our team during construction. Your input and feedback are valuable in ensuring your tiny home meets your expectations.

Completion: Celebrating Your Tiny Home

Once construction is complete, we’ll conduct a final walkthrough with you to ensure your satisfaction with the finished product. At CASK Construction, we stand by our work as tiny home builders, giving you peace of mind knowing your ADU is built to last.

Tip: Take the time to thoroughly inspect your completed ADU during the final walkthrough. This is your opportunity to address any concerns and ensure the finished product aligns with your vision.
