Building an ADU in L.A.- Part II (excerpt)

In a previous post, we discussed how City of L.A. was making a dramatic appearance on the national ADU scene in the first quarter of 2017.

Between 2003-2016, an average of one hundred permitted ADUs had been developed each year in L.A.. While 100 ADUs a year is something, it’s certainly not a lot of housing for a city with a population of nearly four million people, and 1.4 million housing units.

But, 2017 has entirely changed the landscape for ADUs in California at large. And, L.A. has done something that no one expected.

DRUM ROLL……

I’M AMAZED TO REPORT THAT THE CITY OF L.A. IS GOING TO TAKE THE MANTLE AS THE U.S CITY WITH THE MOST ADU PRODUCTION IN 2017.

Congratulations to all the Angeleños who permitted ADUs this year. For 2017, the ADU development award goes to Los Angeles.

    Hello, I am writing to share some very very unfortunate news that the startup prefab ADU company ‘Avava Systems’ Based out of Berkeley CA is filing for bankruptcy. They have not made any confirmations to the 3 mid-project contracts that they have in process. We never would have imagined this disaster (for us it is) and I would like to remind other consumers that construction companies and apparently pre-fab ADU focused companies also, go bankrupt and to ensure the companies you work with have ‘bonding companies’ and to get as much information about their financial solvency as you are able. We wish we had been more skeptical and cautious. Best wishes Ashley McClure
