ADU Home Plans
An ADU, or accessory dwelling unit, is usually a secondary housing unit on a single-family residential lot, complete with kitchen, bathroom and sleeping facilities. Subject to local regulations, ADUs may be located either inside, attached to, or detached from the primary home on property. Some common terms for these home plans are: Mother in Law Apartment, In-Law Suite, Detached ADU / DADU, Backyard Cottage, Granny Flat, Garage Apartment, or Carriage House.
ADUs can offer many benefits, such as:
- Maximizing the occupancy of your property
- Creating a secondary rental income, by renting out the ADU or the main home
- More budget-friendly to build
