El Cajon Accessory Dwelling Unit
Good morning. It’s Bill Freeman with Freeman’s Construction. We’ve started a new project here in El Cajon in the Blossom Valley area. We’re grading the pad right now and should be able to get it all completed today.
Existing Home & New ADU Property Layout
This is an additional dwelling unit on a property that has an existing home on it. As you can see, there’s the main dwelling up above. And then we’re putting in an additional dwelling unit down here on the lower part of the property.
Process for Soils Testing
They’ve got all of the pad pushed out so now they will dig down and put up what we call a “keyway” down to the hard ground, and the soils engineer takes a look at that and approves that. Once they’re done they’ll start filling and compacting the dirt as we come up. Then they take soil tests as they go.
Grading Process for Pad | Blossom Valley ADU
You can see where he’s laying in the dirt right now, they wet the ground to get the soil the right consistency for when they compact everything in. They put it in and it lifts as they come up, and then to pack it down they just keep putting the dirt in until we get up to the desired level that we have where the pad balances out.
Why Would Someone Want an Accessory Dwelling Unit?
Lots of these are going in throughout the county. It’s a great way to enhance your property or something to build for:
● Aging Family Member
