ADUs present a versatile and unique form of housing that is often used to reap additional income. ADUs are reduced-sized housing units constructed on single-family residential lots. One ADU is allowed per lot, with each ADU regulated and fully equipped with necessary kitchen, bathroom, and living space. Legislation in the last several years has made it easier than ever for Californians to meet ADU requirements, which a professional contractor can help you navigate for a successful and streamlined ADU project.
Though each ADU presents a smaller living space than the main residence, there are several different types of ADU structures. ADUs can be attached to the main residence but must contain a separate entrance. They can also be converted out of the attic, basement, or garage space.
ADUs can additionally be entirely stand-alone structures, either converted from existing infrastructure or constructed from the ground up. Because ADUs can be rented independently from the main property, they offer a variety of opportunities for the homeowner.
