Greg Popovich at the State Capitol on October 16, 2017. He was meeting with one of Senator Wieckowski’s staff to discuss roadblocks that are being created to slow the progress of ADU development in some cities. Progress is being made to patch the holes/loopholes and more legislation will be coming to help with the affordable housing crisis.
ADUs are growing in popularity as many homeowners utilize them to generate revenue. Also though, they provide people with the opportunity to be closer to family, or to help retirees stay in their homes longer. With an ADU, a nurse or caregiver can live in the unit, or the retiree can even live in it, and let their kids live in the house. One customer recently remarked that she was going to live in her ADU and rent out the main house. In the Bay Area, that is not a bad income opportunity!

We are working to provide beautiful spaces for people to live, and in turn, help homeowners make extra income. Call us today to see if your property may qualify for an ADU, or fill out the form on the Contact page.
A proposed project that is to be mostly funded by a private philanthropist hit a snag recently, due to concerns over zoning. Several prestigious city council members supported the project and it had the funds, yet the city felt compelled to shut down the project at the proposed site due to a need for more businesses in that area.

At Goldbar Builders, we are working tirelessly to solve the affordable housing crisis, and our PATH program will help teachers in a unique way. One of the reasons why we believe so strongly in this program is that the land is already zoned properly, and due to passage of SB 1099 and other recent legislation, building an ADU has never been easier. We have answers to all of your questions, so click on our "Contact" page and request more information today. Not all properties qualify for this program, but our experienced team will walk you through the process and schedule a consultation for you as soon as possible.
As an educator, I was saddened to read the recent article about Etoria Cheeks, a hard-working Math teacher who could not find affordable housing in the Bay Area. We need to do more to help teachers, and that is why we developed the PATH system as a solution to this issue. If you are a teacher in need of affordable housing, or one that would like to partner with us to help, please fill out the form on the Contact Us page for more information.
