With 20 years of experience in property development, David saw the opportunities for homeowners to provide additional housing for themselves, a family member, or to create additional income, by building an ADU. Once the new regulations were adopted, he worked to discover an Easy, Fast and Affordable product and created the “JumpStart Building Program”. With the help and coordination with our partners in Northern California, this Building Program is the fastest available that complies with all local and state building codes.
David is hard at work creating educational content, and enjoys discussing any ADU question with his clients. So don’t hesitate to schedule a Zoom meeting or phone call with him.
