What is an ADU?
Put simply ADU is an acronym for “Accessory Dwelling Unit”. An accessory dwelling unit is a liveable space that shares a lot with an existing home.
The Quick History of ADU’s.
ADU’s have historically been referred to as granny flats or mother-in-law apartments.
According to KAREN CHAPPL, faculty director of the Center for Community Innovation at UC Berkely, the practice of building supplemental living spaces in the Bay area has been going on for more than 100 years.
Does building an ADU make sense for you?
In recent years ADU’s have generated increased interest and positive feedback. New laws are being established and restrictions loosened to make the building of ADU’s easier for homeowners and contractors.
Some of the benefits of building an ADU on your property include:
- Boosts Property Value/Equity
- Supplemental Income
- Financial Independence
- Provides affordable housing options
- Efficient Use of Existing Infrastructure
- Provides flexible housing options
