Shelter Solutions Design / Build Process

Complimentary Consultation

During this virtual meeting, we will delve deeper into your ADU goals, review the details of your property, walk you through our comprehensive design/build process, and address any questions you may have. We can also connect you with financing resources if needed.


Project Analysis

The next step is to start the Project Analysis, allowing us to  proceed with a thorough site evaluation, collaborate with you on a preliminary design and provide a detailed cost estimate for your project. 



If your project is already funded, you can skip this step. If you are still pursuing financing options, this is the time to finalize. We can provide a range of resources and suggestions.


Client Onboarding

Upon deciding to build with us, you’ll be provided with a secure login to our industry-leading builder software. This streamlined platform combined with the expertise from our build team provides transparency and ensures a smooth and collaborative building experience. 


Final Plans

Next, we will promptly initiate the process of preparing your plans for submission to permitting, making any necessary final adjustments and obtaining the required engineered drawings to ensure a smooth and efficient permitting process.


Permit Processing & Finish Selections

While we take care of your permitting, you will collaborate with our Selection Coordinator, who will guide you through the process of visiting showrooms and finalizing essential elements such as cabinet layout/design, appliance selection, plumbing fixtures, surfaces, doors, windows, hardware, lighting, and more.



Once the permitting process is complete, construction will commence. Our skilled Project Manager will work diligently to bring your vision to life. At this point, your construction schedule will be updated and maintained daily in our builder software. You will be able to follow along with progress in real time.


Occupancy Permit

Once the home build is complete and all necessary inspections are cleared, we will hand over the keys to your new home. We take pride in celebrating this moment with you as you step into your beautifully crafted and personalized living space.
