The Benefits of Adding an ADU or Granny Flat to Your Property
ADUs are often called granny flats, in-law units, backyard cottages, second dwellings, or guest houses because they are frequently used to create a dedicated living space for family members; however, they can also be used to create additional rental income. ADUs can range in size from a 500 square foot studio up to a 1,200 square foot 3-bedroom, 2-bath house. They can be attached to or detached from a primary residence, or built by converting a garage.
The primary requirement for a unit to qualify as an ADU is that it provides complete, standalone living space for one or more persons. This means that an ADU needs to have its own entrance, kitchen, bathroom, and living area. If you want to make sure that your new construction project meets local ADU guidelines, give us a call. We can completely manage your project, including architectural design, planning, site preparation, and complete construction, build from plans that you provide, or handle specific portions of the build, such as the foundation and frame.
