The accessory dwelling unit, or ADU, is a popular and affordable housing choice that adds livable space to your property. It’s becoming an increasingly common option as cities across the nation become more expensive, populated, and urbanized. They allow for increased room, without the price-tag of purchasing a brand new home. ADUs come in a plethora of options, allowing you to tailor them to your specific needs.
Legally, ADUs are secondary houses or apartment spaces that share the property lot of a larger, primary house. Some common names for ADUs include: secondary dwelling unit, or in-law units. ADUs can be attached to a house, garage, or built as a separate unit (typically in a backyard). The idea of an ADU is not new, but in recent years, due to new zoning and planning laws, there has been an increasing demand for the extra livable space.
THE 5 TYPES OF ADUS
The majority of Americans build ADUs for family members or for extra rental income. Hence the other common names like guest house, or in-law unit. Additional Dwelling Units are innovative, affordable, and effective housing options. They are especially in demand in cities where housing is expensive and limited, such as Sherman Oaks. MDH Builders is at the forefront of constructing ADUs and educating the community on what it takes to build them. There are five types of ADU’s you should be familiar with:
