An accessory dwelling unit, usually just called an ADU, is a secondary housing unit on a single-family residential lot. They are also known as cottage housing, mother-in-law suites and granny flats.
ADU’s are intended to assist a variety of households to increase home and personal security by utilizing the existing infrastructure and community resources throughout the County, while protecting the existing character of single-family neighborhoods.
ADU’s are being utilized to a greater degree because we all have aging parents and grandparents that want to live independently but be close to family. We have many customers that want to provide security and loving support for their family members.
Be aware that every County has general requirements, which includes the number of ADU’s allowed, type of unit, the size, detached or attached. Check out your specific county for details. Here are some examples.
And of course, we have beautiful homes that meet the requirements of ADU’s for every county. We have 2 models on our display lot with many more floor plans on our website. Feel free to check them out!
