Mother in law suite remodels

While some states may limit their size, accessory dwelling units (ADU) still come in all styles and shapes; from modern ADU designs to barn-style mother-in-law suite and everything in between, we’re guiding homeowners through the process with robust support at every stage.

Mother-in-law suites and ADUs are great opportunities to generate additional income or simply expand your property’s sleeping arrangements. Whatever the motivation behind your renovation, you can count on Refresh to help you create a bespoke design that is perfectly suited to your property and lifestyle. If you have questions like, “can I build a detached accessory dwelling unit on my property?” or are curious about mother-in-law suite living, our experienced Remodeling Consultants are here to assist you with important decisions and offer their expertise.

How does Refresh help?

Accessory dwelling unit plans take on all components of a full house renovation — electrical, plumbing, structural considerations — just in smaller proportions, but challenges that may arise are full-sized. Our 5-step approach to renovations has been designed to mitigate risk by streamlining communication and prioritizing a thorough planning process. You’ll partner with a Remodeling Consultant who will act as your single point of contact throughout your renovation, coordinating trusted ADU builders, sourcing premium suppliers, and making sure you’re well-informed to make important decisions.

“Refresh was wonderful. We had lots of ideas for what we wanted to do, but no clear plan or indication of cost. Refresh’s advice has helped us get started on making plans for our future renovations and the level of trust gained from getting sensible advice has resulted in us choosing Refresh as our preferred partner for this future renovation work.” — Tom Leijen, Refresh client


While we aim to deliver high-quality renovations on time and within budget, it’s our ultimate mission to ensure that homeowners enjoy a stress-free renovation experience. Utilizing our thoughtfully-crafted method enables our Remodeling Consultants to keep their team on track so you can start enjoying your ADU home or mother-in-law suite as soon as possible without compromising on budget, craftsmanship, or customer service.

Garage Addition

Garage Addition

Garages can provide a great starting point for ADU additions. If your garage is unused, you may want to convert the entire space into an accessory unit. If it’s still in use, adding a loft or second storey to the garage is another great solution - one that potential tenants and teenagers alike will enjoy.

Home Extension

Home Extension

Another option is to attach an accessory apartment to your home. This is a great option for growing teens and in-laws who need their own space but also want to be close by. Refresh will help you to personalize the space so that it suits your home, your family member’s needs, and your budget.

Detached Units

Detached Units

Detached ADUs often provide the best solution for everyone. Whoever will be staying in the ADU can enjoy their personal space while being a few steps away from the main house. If you want to create a rental property, it will be simple to maintain and within clear view.

, Refresh Customer

We are in our seventies and downsized from the city to a country cottage that needed a serious reno. We didn’t have a budget. We had a set amount. Family and friends said “good luck finding tradies”. That scared us. Refresh quoted a specified (quite short) timeframe for our requirements and at our set price. THEY DELIVERED. Nadeene was exceptional with advice on interior design, appliances, fittings and where to spend and where to save. Little important details we would never have thought about. We are so grateful to have had our project managed for us by Refresh. on time, on price and problem free.

A smoother renovation journey

Our 5-step process was designed to ensure that all Refresh projects, including ADUs, are delivered on time and within budget.

Step 1

Briefing / Initial Consultation

Whether you’re full of ideas or lacking inspiration, this is a chance for you to get on the same page with your Renovation Consultant. You’ll discuss your goals, budget, and ideal timeline at this early stage in the process to make it easier to manage expectations for your project. Building an accessory dwelling unit is an exciting opportunity that needs a solid foundation to be successful, so tell us everything! No idea is too big or small during the initial consultation.

Step 2

Concept and Feasibility

Now that you’ve discussed the big picture, your Renovation Consultant will arrange for concept designs to be drawn up to determine the feasibility of your project. These drawings allow you to see your ideas take shape and see what’s achievable. There’s still a lot of flexibility in this phase; maybe you’ll find wiggle room within your budget or you may discover some things aren’t worth having.

Step 3

Working Drawings and Costing

Next, your concept drawings will be developed into working drawings, in which technical details such as architectural, structural, and other practical considerations will be addressed. While you’re always in control of your renovation, this is the last planning step before building begins, so it’s the most cost-effective time to make any final alterations. To close out this phase, they’ll provide you with a fixed quote so you know the entire accessory dwelling unit cost before getting started.

Step 4

Build / Construction Stage

When building begins, you can finally see your dream take shape. The robust support provided by your Renovation Consultant will continue through this phase as they coordinate speciality craftspeople and reliable contractors, and source premium materials from preferred suppliers. They’ll also monitor the construction closely to ensure your project is delivered on time, within budget, and with limited disruptions, so you can enjoy the fruits of a stress-free renovation.

Step 5

Your Finished Renovation

The final step before your Renovation Consultant officially hands over your transformed home is to ensure that all of the necessary documentation is in order. Compliance certificates deem your project up to code with any local building regulations. Once you have that, your accessory dwelling unit is complete!
