What Are Accessory Dwelling Units?

Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs), also referred to as secondary units or granny flats, are self-contained living spaces that coexist with primary residences on single-family properties. These units allow homeowners to use existing space creatively, providing additional housing options within established residential neighborhoods.

ADUs can manifest as converted garages, basement apartments, or standalone structures like cottages or tiny homes that blend into the existing property landscape. Equipped with essential amenities like kitchens, bathrooms, and living areas, ADUs serve many purposes, from accommodating extended family members to generating rental income or providing housing for caregivers.

With evolving zoning regulations and growing interest in affordable housing solutions, ADUs have emerged as a versatile and sustainable way to address housing needs while maximizing property value and utility.

ADU Requirements: What Do You Need to Know Before You Build?

ADU requirements encompass a variety of considerations that homeowners must adhere to when planning and constructing accessory dwelling units.

These requirements typically include the following:

  • Zoning regulations dictate where ADUs can be built within the city, ensuring they comply with land use and density requirements.
  • Building codes outline the structural and safety standards that ADUs must meet to ensure habitability and structural integrity.
  • Size limitations may restrict the maximum square footage or height of ADUs to maintain neighborhood character and minimize impacts on surrounding properties.
  • Permit processes involve submitting detailed plans and documentation to demonstrate compliance with all applicable regulations.
