** Services for requirements not included in your ADU Permit Set may be sourced through Hausable or directly from providers on an as required basis. Pricing for such services is determined by third party providers and Hausable does not mark up such services.

*** This service is only available for order once an ADU Design Report has been performed for the property. Pricing will be calculated depending on the requirements, style, location and complexity of the design. Not all properties will be offered this option, particularly if the report determines that, for example, variances are likely to be required for project approval, or requirements for the ADU project are substantially more customized than a standard residential design.

With your ADU Permit Set, you or your contractor will be fully prepared to submit your project for permitting at your city. We'll continue to update the plans as the city requires in order to reach approval of your project.
