What are ADU'S

The accessory dwelling unit, or ADU, is a typically smaller second home that has its own kitchen, bedroom and bathroom facilities, and is located inside, attached to, or close to an existing single-family house. Also known as an in-law suite, guesthouse, backyard cottage or granny flat, an ADU is any additional living unit on the lot of a single-family home.

Legally, an ADU is part of the same property as the main home, regardless of whether it is in the form of an apartment next to the garage, a basement apartment, or a free-standing home. An accessory dwelling unit must be owner occupied and unlike a condominium, it cannot be bought or sold separately.

Although they became less common in the middle of the 20th century, the popularity of ADUs is on the rise. This change comes as homeowners strive to make better use of existing land, and as over-developed areas search for ways to increase the availability of affordable housing options.

  • It’s easier than ever to build a secondary unit on your property. Local regulations have been passed to allow you to build an ADU that suits your needs and supports housing needs in your community.
