Have you heard people talking about an ADU House? What is an ADU, and is it a type of housing? Many people are asking these questions as accessory dwelling units (ADUs) are becoming increasingly more popular. ADUs are like small houses, but they are unique with different characteristics that set them apart. In this article, we will discuss what an ADU is, the different types of ADUs, and how you can profit by building an ADU House on your property.
What is an ADU?
An accessory dwelling unit (ADU) is a small, independent residential unit that is located on the same lot as a single-family house. There are many different kinds of ADUs. They can be located within the existing single-family residence, attached onto the existing single-family home, or built detached from the single-family house. They can be as small as studio apartments or as large as stand-alone multi-bedroom housing units. ADUs can serve many different purposes depending on what the homeowner wants to do with it.
An ADU is like its own house. Accessory dwelling units are considered separate residences from the main single-family home. This means that ADUs can be rented out long-term and homeowners can collect passive income from the tenants living there. Many people decide to build both an ADU and a Junior ADU. A Junior ADU is a small unit located within the existing single-family home and has its own kitchen and separate entrance. Many people choose to build this junior ADU unit inside their garage. If you would like to see an example of a Garage Conversion ADU, check out the Hillcrest Model on “Our Models” page. The second ADU must be detached from the single-family home and can also be rented out. View the detached ADU models that we offer on “Our Models” page also.
An ADU also adds square footage! You are basically building a second home onto an existing property, creating room for elderly parents, adult children or extended relatives. All of our ADUs are built with curb-less showers and at least 32” doors, so the disabled and elderly have easy access. Adding an ADU also benefits remote workers who need an office or meeting space at home.
