About Onsite Construction & Restoration
Proudly veteran-owned and operated, and with over 17 years in the residential and commercial construction business, Onsite Construction is one of the most respected building contractors serving the St. Petersburg, Florida area. Our licensed and experienced project managers and our highly skilled construction teams specialize in custom new home builds, additions, renovations, remodels, and water damage restoration.
And as of July 2022, when the St. Petersburg city officials gave the greenlight to a proposal aimed at easing the city’s residential housing crisis, we can also design and build Accessory Dwelling Units or ADUs.
Commonly called “garage apartments,” “in-law suites,” and “guest or carriage houses,” an ADU can be added to your existing home structure, garage, garage loft, or it can be built as a second home on your property. Free standing ADUs generally have a building footprint limited to no more than 750 square feet or 25% of the gross floor area (whichever is less) of the main house on the same property—think “tiny houses”—and must have a similar roof shape, paint color, be shorter than the primary house, and have other physical characteristics that are the same as the main home. Some ADU applicants will have to make room for additional parking, but overall, the ADUs will certainly add value to any real estate, in addition to making more housing available in the St. Petersburg area.
The city of St. Petersburg has been looking for innovative ways to address the housing crisis in our area and is hoping that more owners will add a second home onto their property to provide more affordable housing options in established neighborhoods. These ADUs would help address the housing shortage in the St. Petersburg area and can be used for family members, friends who might be visiting, or they can be rented out.
The city is considering expanding ADU zoning into more neighborhoods, allowing many more owners to turn those detached properties into affordable rental units. Right now, about 30,000 homes in St. Pete qualify. Additional proposed zoning changes would expand that by close to 50%.
As part of the St. Pete community, Onsite Construction has answered the call by launching an Accessory Dwelling Unit division to its already highly successful residential home building unit. At Onsite we don’t just build houses. We create family homes. And, whether it’s an addition to your current home, or a freestanding structure, now we build ADUs as well. As with every home or building we construct, our Onsite team stands behind the quality of all our services, including emphasizing our pledge to offer reliable and timely customer service to every one of our customers.
Since our company’s founding in 2006, we have worked with numerous clients throughout the St. Petersburg community. And because we employ our own in-house crews, our teams can create shorter project schedules and uphold higher standards. We pride ourselves on the fact that 80% of our business comes from repeat and past clients, or referrals.

A full or partial home interior renovation or interior remodel is another one of the expert services we provide our clients. Do you have a family home that needs updating? Have you outgrown your living space and need an addition built? Have you purchased an older home and you need to upgrade and update it, while keeping its charm intact?

From new plumbing and electrical upgrades, to redesigning the floorplan, to updating and upgrading the kitchen and bathrooms, our Onsite Construction team can give your home a new lease on life.
A wall removed, a room added, a kitchen made larger and more modern, a walk-in shower installed in the bathroom, an “in-law” suite added, these are just a few of the renovation and remodeling projects that we at Onsite specialize in. And there are so many more. Whether you’re revamping your living space, making an in-home office space more functional, adding an ADU, or just need to make a change, Onsite Construction is the company to call.
What’s the Difference Between Renovation and Rebuilding?
Essentially, the difference between these two construction terms is that a renovation means that we will restore one or more rooms to their previous condition by refinishing, repainting, and essentially doing what is necessary to bring it back to life. Renovation revives and updates a room or home but doesn’t change the floorplan. Renovations are often small-scale projects.
A remodel refers to creating something new. Remodels include changes to a home’s structure or layout. Remodeling means a substantial addition to an existing home for extra rooms or an “in-law” suite. It can mean new office space added to a commercial building, or an extensive change to the interior configuration, including the electrical, HVAC, or plumbing systems of an existing home or office building. Remodeling can make rooms larger, open spaces to more light and better traffic pathways, add storage closets, raise ceilings, or add an ADU, for example.
Building Your Freestanding ADU
Building an ADU on your property can be a truly exciting and creative endeavor. It can also be frustrating if you aren’t using the right construction company. Builders must understand and “see” the vision of what you want your ADU to look like, how it should “feel” when a potential renter walks in the door. What standards must be met to be in compliance with your city codes.
Building an ADU takes expert planning, experienced craftsmanship, with a dash of creativity and a lot of heart. At Onsite, our people have grown our company’s reputation by working hard to make our clients happy with the quality and precision of our work. And since most of us also live in St. Petersburg and the surrounding communities, we want to create beautifully crafted buildings that allow us to hold our heads up high. We take pride in the results. And you will too.
Our Hard Work Equals Happy Customers
We work hard to take the stress out of every project for our customers, and we make sure that we are collaborating with you every step of the way. We look to you for any input that will help to make your ADU a reality, just the way you envision it. We explain why we suggest certain types of building materials, what works best in the Florida climate, how we can match the outline, color, and roof lines of your primary home. We offer samples for you to choose from. And ultimately, we design and build your ADU as if it were our own.
But in the end, it’s so much more than creating your custom-built ADU, it’s about finding out what kind of living space works. It’s about creating a comfortable “in-law” suite or building that extra small home just in the right location, near the palm trees on your property. It’s about creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere for every room. A place that makes you, your family, or a renter feel comfortable. Our job is to bring your vision into existence, so that you can also take pride in the results.
