Review Echo Builders Garage Conversion Process

Design and Architectural Planning Comes First

Design and Architectural Planning Comes First

The first step is generally architectural planning. Echo Builders can help you with this process, but in case you have already acquired architectural drawings, we can continue the process and do the structural engineering, permits and the actual building. Remember to consult architects, builders and subcontractors about your garage conversion project. You will have a more detailed and thorough objectives and schematics. Talk with a contractor and get advice on the prices and financing available. Don’t forget that Echo Builders can work with the municipal zoning authorities in your location to make sure the garage conversion you are building is legal.

Step Two Is Structural Engineering

Structural Engineering

A structural engineer can help you verify that your architectural plan is actually safe and provides stability. The engineer will analyze your land and your existing construction to make sure the ADU will last for a long time. Ideally, the review will confirm that the ADU is going to be a safe, durable and reliable structure.

Permits Come Next

Architectural permits

This step is where you get your local authorities approval verifying that the project is safe and legal. According to the SB 1069 bill only the ADUs that meet certain standards can be approved and issued a building permit. The local governments then review the preliminary planning that has been done already to verify the safety of the construction project.

Construction Step

Construction Step

This step starts with summarizing all the details and ideas as well as finalizing the budget. During construction one of the most important parts is following the plan, because seemingly minor details could ruin the architectural plan. Another important aspect is the workflow and following the dates of deliveries, inspections, estimated completion dates and more. Working with Echo Builders prevents the issues from falling through the cracks.
