ADU Update

by Ella Chatfield-Stiehler
In early September we broke ground on our new affordable housing project in the backyard of our house on Second Ave in San Bruno. Once complete it will provide two more permanent bedrooms of permanent housing for those we serve. As the accompanying pictures show the framing is largely finished and we can get a real sense of how the building will look once completed.
It’s a truism in any building project that the client is always dissatisfied with the pace of construction, and we are no different. While we are happy with the progress that has been made, we wish things were moving along quicker. The torrential rainstorm we experienced on Sunday, October 24 hit just before the contractors had planned on roofing the building (of course) and will delay progress by a week or two. UGH! Such is life in construction. We are still hoping for a February move in date and we will keep you updated on the progress of construction.
Finally, we want to thank all of you who responded so generously to our September appeal for assistance with funds for the ADU. Your generosity will enable us to complete the project without going into debt or taking funds from our other projects. Thank you all so much!
