An ADU, or Accessory Dwelling Unit, is considered an “accessory” to a primary residential unit. In other words, an ADU is a secondary housing unit that is located on a single-family or multi-family residential lot. An ADU can be attached or detached from the main house and provides an area for sleeping, eating, cooking, and bathing. The ADU functions separately from the primary residence, so it must have its own entrance. However, this gives homeowners the ability to rent out the ADU or move into the ADU and rent out the primary residence.
A JADU, or Junior Accessory Dwelling Unit, is no more than 500 square feet and must be located within the existing primary residential unit. For example, a JADU can be built in an existing garage or bedroom, but it must have a separate external access from the primary residence. JADUs can have a full kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, and living area, which makes them ideal suites to rent out or let a family member move into. See an example of a JADU by clicking HERE.
Why Build an ADU?
- Rental Income– Rent out the ADU or move into the ADU and rent out the
- Ease of Financing– Use the equity in your home to build the ADU, rent it
out, and make additional income.
- Multi-Generational Family Living– Allow family members to stay in the
ADU, keeping them close, while giving them independence.
- Extra Space– Use the ADU for that extra space you need, like a home office
or studio space!
