An ADU, or an accessory dwelling unit, is a small addition to your home that has all the functions of a stand-alone home, including a kitchen and a bathroom. The possibilities for this kind of space are endless. Rent it out, allow your family to live in it, use it as a home office, a workshop or an entertainment space.
What are the unique challenges of building an ADU? As essentially a small home within a home, ADUs need to be integrated into the existing systems of the home, including plumbing, electricity and HVAC. The ADU should also feel consistent with the rest of the home. It can be more stylish but shouldn’t be jarring. Also, it is very important that the ADU be personalized for your unique needs. As a small space, it will need to be well-designed in order to be used for what you want.
