There are a host of reasons why homeowners look to increase the size of their home. Whether it's growing families or new hobbies, adding one or several rooms to your home is an effective and increasingly popular means of increasing your space. When done right, not only does a home addition provide extra space but it adds value to your home and increases its aesthetic charm.
Another increasingly popular avenue homeowners take are ADUs (accessory dwelling units), which refers to a secondary house or apartment that shares the building lot of the original house. ADUs are an efficient use of existing space and are perfect for growing families or for having a dedicated space for hobbies or activities.
If you have extra space at the bottom of your garden, an ADU may be a perfect choice. We pride ourselves in handling every step of the construction process, from design and implementation to clean-up.

In the early days of Fair Oaks, California, there wasn’t any water for keeping the recently vegetation alive, or for bathing or for drinking. A resident of the settlement had to drive his wagon or his horse either to and established farm that had a well an beg for some water or to the river for water.
Then there was a wait because in order to be productive commercially, the fruit trees took time to grow. Oftentimes this wait would take years. Then, there wasn’t any method to transport the produce outside of the local Fair Oaks market area without driving horse and wagon across the bridges at Sacramento and Folsom to the railroad when the orchards finally matured and began full production. There were also the difficult negotiations between the railroads, wholesalers, and producers, in order to take the farmers citrus products to the markets back east.
Some of the early pioneers who were skilled farmers who worked hard prior to their arrival at Fair Oaks survived, but many didn’t. It didn’t take long before their names disappeared from business directories for Sacramento County. Some of these early pioneers were upper middle-class people who had sources of income other than farming and made their money in business. Some of them were capable of looking at their farming venture as business speculation and could employ others to do the physical, hard work. However, those who were persuaded by the advertising that promised a paradise where no physical hardships were likely and who weren’t prepared to work from dawn until dusk came to a disappointing end.
However, some did manage to survive, and they satisfied their cultural and physical requirements in many different ways. Some, such as a man named Leonard Shelton, arrived in Fair Oaks as merchants to supply the hardware, clothes, and food needed by the rural family. Up until the first church, known as the Pioneer Episcopal Methodist Church was established in 1898, church services were held in a grange hall. Shortly thereafter, in 1906, the Presbyterian Church of Fair Oaks was established. School also began in the grange hall as well, and in 1898 the first school, which had one room, was constructed just north of the Methodist Church in 1898. However, in 1902, a more elegant one church was constructed downtown. There was a man named Fred Kreidewisse, who was a blacksmith, had a shop, which was located at the intersection of Sierra Street and Main Street, and others soon followed. A doctor from Chicago named Robert Bramhall was convinced by his father named Frank to begin his practice in Fair Oaks. A labor contractor, who is unknown, brought in crews of Mexican, Japanese, Hindus, and Chinese Hindus to do much of the heavy land preparation.
With the completion of the railroad line and the Fair Oaks Bridge, Fair Oaks grew rather quickly. The year 1902 brought the incorporation of the Fair Oaks Fruit Company and in Fair Oaks a warehouse was constructed to export olives, almonds, and most importantly, citrus. In addition, Dr. R. Bramhall became the first medical doctor to live and open a medical office in Fair Oaks in 1902. The establishment of other community services were prompted by the productive farming of agricultural products. By 1906, Fair Oaks had become a classic small community that had grocery and dry-goods stores, a newspaper, a cemetery, a bank, a lumber store, a blacksmith shop, a hotel, and a post office all located on Main Street.
A Presbyterian Church and a Methodist Church were constructed along with two schools, which were Fair Oaks School, which is the current location of the Community Clubhouse, and the Four Gables School were also built by 1910. In 1908, the Fair Oaks Library Association organized and, in 1912, became a permanent building. In 1918, the Fair Oaks Civic Club bought and developed the Plaza in for leisure and recreational activities. These days, the plaza is still being used.
At the pinnacle of the Great Depression in 1932, a big freeze hit many if not the majority of the citrus groves were lost. Fair Oaks wasn’t a primary producer of citrus fruit in California any longer after this and a similar freeze occurred in 1934. However, the economy of Fair Oaks was helped by the increased progression of the Aerojet defense company, which helped to offset the demise of its primary industry.
Between the late 1960’s through the early1970’s some temporary dislocations occurred when employment at Aerojet decreased by more than 90%. However, the growth rate still continued, as the result of the construction of the Sunrise Boulevard Bridge the increased access to Sacramento by Highway 50 in 1954. This permitted the residents of Fair Oaks to find more employment in the connecting residents as well as for the residents of Sacramento to more easily move to Fair Oaks. The previous citrus community became a bedroom community in the greater Sacramento area.
