About ADU Project
What is an accessory dwelling unit?
An accessory dwelling unit (ADU) is a home, built on a single-family lot, separate from the main dwelling. Accessory dwelling units have their own kitchen, bathroom, and sleeping facilities. They can be attached or detached from the existing single-family home, also called the primary dwelling unit. Accessory dwelling units are sometimes referred to as granny flats or in-law apartments, both names referring to multigenerational living. They can be com-pletely new construction, an extension or partition of the main house, or a conversion of an existing accessory structure such as a recreational room or garage.
