Can we can build a backyard home on your lot?

Maybe. California passed Assembly Bill AB 1866 that requires local agencies to permit second dwelling units meeting zoning setbacks in residential zones subject only to a building permit. Other items to consider are homeowners association requirements and site constraints.

Western Homebuilders will prepare a preliminary feasibility and cost estimate at no charge to you.
