How to Build an ADU

With new laws and regulations in place, many people are asking, “How to Build an ADU?”  ADUs, or accessory dwelling units, are considered separate dwellings from the primary residence, which means that you can rent them out.  Many people choose to use ADUs for personal reasons, however, such as a home office, guest house, or studio.  Whatever you choose to do with the ADU is up to you.  In this article, we are going to cover the easiest and fastest way to build an ADU.

How to Build an ADU

Building an ADU can sometimes be a difficult challenge if you are navigating the process alone.  Many cities and jurisdictions have their own set of ADU rules on top of the state ADU laws, which can make the planning process confusing.  In addition, multiple professionals from different fields need to come together in order to build an ADU.  This includes an architect, a structural engineer, an interior designer, a contractor, and a project manager.  Oftentimes, even more professionals are needed to be called in order to facilitate the building of an ADU, such as a geologist or solar specialist.  As you can tell, building an ADU does not usually involve going through only one company, but several.  This can be daunting for homeowners, but thanks to Superior ADUs, there’s another way.
