Adding a Second Unit to a San Rafael Home

Couldn’t we all use a little more “elbow room?” You’ve realized that your home needs some extra space to put up guests. Or you need some extra room so that you can take care of your in-laws. Or how about creating a second unit so you can take in tenants for some extra rental income?

If you’re looking at options to add some extra space to your home, having a second unit could be a good option to consider. A second unit (also known as in-law suite) is considered to be an extra living unit on your main property that often comes equipped with a kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. They can be either attached to or detached from the main home on your property.

This was the situation facing a client of ours in San Rafael. They wanted to create an additional second unit as a guest house. What was important to them was that the new unit matched the existing architectural detail of their house. This wasn’t a problem for us – what we came up with was a 550 square-foot-unit which would be available as a place to put up their guests. As you can see in the following photos, this is going to be a very cute and practical addition to the property.

These photos represent the design phase of the project. Currently, we are waiting for the city of San Rafael to approve the design and provide us with the building permit, so we can move forward and start construction.
