What is An ADU?

An Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) is essentially a secondary living space on the same property as your primary residence. These units, also known as granny flats or backyard cottages, can be attached or detached from the main dwelling and come equipped with living, sleeping, kitchen, and bathroom facilities. ADUs provide a versatile solution for elderly living.

ADU vs Retirement Home

1. Proximity and Family Bonds:

  •  Enables your loved ones to stay close, fostering stronger family bonds. Proximity ensures immediate support and quality time together.


2. Customized Care:

  •  Allows for personalized care within familiar surroundings. ADUs can be tailored with age-in-place features, ensuring the specific needs of your parents are met.


3. Financial Considerations:

  • Represents a one-time investment. It can potentially generate rental income, offsetting costs and increasing property value.


4. Independence:

  • Preserves autonomy as parents can live independently within the confines of their ADU while being connected to the main household.

1. Proximity and Family Bonds:

  • May involve physical separation, potentially impacting the closeness and frequency of family interactions.


2. Customized Care:

  • Offers generalized care in a communal setting, which might lack the personalized touch of a home environment.


3. Financial Considerations:

  • Involves ongoing fees and expenses. The cumulative costs may surpass the initial investment of building an ADU.

  • Involves communal living, which may limit the autonomy of residents compared to a more independent living space.

"Great job from the team at IMKAT construction. From my initial contact with Vitaly to the project daily management with Ruvim, these guys are very professional and the most honest contractors out there. The entire project took exactly three months as promised, and the final completion was way beyond what I expected. Thank you guys very much. I'm very pleased on how this turned out."

Andres C Sacramento, CA

I hired Imkat for the construction of a small one bedroom ADU on my property after meeting with multiple contractors. I liked their fresh and modern take on ADUs in comparison to other projects being offered in the Sacramento area. General construction goals regarding package and costs were met during my initial discussion in relation to those of other builders that I interviewed and what they offered. Their management team is courteous and attentive.

"We had a really great experience working with IMKAT construction on our remodeling project. Ivan and Vitaly worked with us to come up with a layout that made the most of our limited space. Most importantly, the craftsmanship and attention to detail in their work was extremely good. We love our new bathrooms and we’re definitely going to call IMKAT construction next time we have a construction project."

Eric A Sacramento, CA

We had a very positive experience with Imkat, start to finish!! Our project was to build a street facing, 684 sq.ft. “Granny flat” ADU adjacent to our daughter’s house on her property, which is located in the new Sacramento subdivision, Crocker Village. Since this is to be our new home, and because it needed to look and feel exactly like the newer houses in the neighborhood, it was important to us that the property not be just another ADU.
