Housing Prices in California and ADUS as a Solution

With the rapid growth of California through the northern Bay Area, the housing market is under fire. With limited resources to expand and astronomically high pricing, the market is reaching saturation. Accessory dwelling units (ADUs) are being seen as a solution to this housing crisis, and Well Made is at the forefront of this new industry.


As a company, Well Made is committed to providing high-quality ADUs that are sustainable and affordable. Our goal is to help ease the housing crisis in California by providing families with an accessory dwelling unit that can be used as a rental income property or for multi-generational living.

Housing Pricing in California


The median price of a home in California is $548,000. With these medians growing prices, many people are being priced out of the market. Accessory dwelling units offer a more affordable solution to housing, with the average cost of an ADU being $150,000. This means that an ADU could potentially save a family nearly $400,000 on the cost of a home.

California is currently in the midst of a housing crisis, and ADUs are seen as a solution to this problem.

What is an ADU?


An accessory dwelling unit, or ADU, is a small living space that is attached or detached from a single-family home. These units can be used for a variety of purposes, such as guest quarters, rental income property, or multi-generational living. Well Made is committed to helping families achieve their homeownership dreams, and our accessory dwelling units are a perfect solution for those looking to expand to more space within the housing market without having to go into crippling debt.

How We Do It


With an extensive background in construction, we are able to provide high-quality ADUs that meet all the necessary building and safety standards. We also work with our clients to ensure that their accessory dwelling unit is placed on their property in the most efficient and effective way possible.


The first step in our process is to consult with our clients to get a better understanding of their needs and wants. We then work with them to develop a plan that meets all the requirements set forth by the California Building Code. Once the plan is approved, we begin construction and work diligently to complete the accessory dwelling unit in a timely manner.


Our accessory dwelling units are built with high-quality materials and construction methods. We use a concrete slab on grade foundation for all our units to ensure a solid base. The walls are framed with studs and sheathed with plywood before being covered with sheetrock. The exterior is then finished with either Hardie siding or Red Cedar siding. The roof is framed with trusses and sheathed with plywood before being covered with either asphalt shingles or metal roofing.


The interior of our accessory dwelling units is just as well-crafted as the exterior. We use premium vinyl flooring throughout the unit and black nanawall doors to maximize space. Our accessory dwelling units are also outfitted with interior climate control to ensure comfortable living conditions year-round. Every Well Made ADU is taken care of from the start to the end results. Our team works with the city to obtain all permits and work through the red tape for you. Well Made knows how to get the job done right and efficiently. Learn more about our building process and contact our team today!


By working with Well Made, you can be confident that you are receiving a high-quality accessory dwelling unit that is built to last. We take care of everything from start to finish, so you can focus on enjoying your new accessory dwelling unit. Well Made has perfected these two models of ADUs that could be perfect for your home:

  • ADU One: The ADU One model is the complete accessory dwelling unit package. This model includes a concrete slab on grade foundation, red cedar ventilated facade and soffit, corrugated metal back and sidewalls, premium vinyl flooring inside, black nanawall (accordion door), four double-hung windows, one awning window, interior doors, sheetrock walls and ceiling, painted finish, and plywood kitchen cabinets. Kitchen appliances include a refrigerator, countertop stove, microwave, dishwasher, and sink. The bathroom includes a toilet, shower, and vanity. Interior climate control is included to ensure comfortable living conditions year-round.

  • ADU Studio: The ADU Studio model is a more compact accessory dwelling unit that includes many of the same features as the ADU One. Similar to the ADU One, the unit is built on a cement foundation and has the same red cedar facade and walls. The unit has two double-hung windows, one awning window, interior doors, sheetrock walls and ceiling, painted finish, and plywood kitchen cabinets. The kitchen is equipped with a refrigerator, a countertop stove, a microwave, and a sink. The bathroom contains a toilet, shower, and vanity. Year-round pleasant living conditions are assured thanks to the use of indoor climate control.

While both of these models have similar builds, the key difference is the overall size of every feature. If you are looking for a more compact space to set up your home office or personal gym, the ADU Studio could be ideal for you. If you are looking to have an in-law move in to live there full time, look into our ADU One model. The ADU One allows for more space in the bedroom, kitchen, living room, and bathroom. Our accessory dwelling units are a great way to add value to your home while providing additional living space.
