All You Need To Know About Building An ADU On Your Property.
Aright Builders is your number #1 Choice when it comes to ADU projects

An Accessory Dwelling Unit, also known as a granny or in-law unit, is a living unit that is an accessory use to a single-family or multifamily residential building, wherever such developments are permitted.

An ADU acts as a stand-alone home with its own kitchen, bath, bedroom and living space. An accessory dwelling unit can act as a guest house, rental unit, separate living or workspace, or pool house. They are an innovative and effective option for adding much needed housing in California.

Benefits of Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs)

ADUs can provide a source of income for homeowners.

ADUs allow extended families to be near one another while maintaining privacy.

ADUs can provide as much living space as many newly-built apartments and condominiums, and they’re suited well for couples, small families, friends, young people, and seniors.

ADUs give homeowners the flexibility to share independent living areas with family members and others, allowing seniors to age in place as they require more care.

1. What is ADU?

An ADU (Accessory Dwelling Unit) is a small home built on top of a regular house. These units are commonly used as extra bedrooms or offices, and they are becoming increasingly popular in California.

2. Why do people choose ADUs?

There are many reasons why someone would want to build an ADU. One of the most obvious reasons is that they have children who need their own space. Another reason is that they don't want to live in a big house with lots of rooms. Also, some people simply prefer to live in smaller spaces.

3. How much does it cost to build an ADU?

The price of building an ADU varies depending on where you live and how much work you want to put into it. If you're looking at building an ADU yourself, you'll probably spend less than $10,000. However, if you hire a contractor, you could end up spending around $20,000.

4. Is it legal to build an ADU in my area?

In California, it's completely legal to build an AD unit. You just need to make sure that the structure meets certain requirements. There are two types of ADUs: detached and attached. Detached ADUs are separate structures that are connected to the main house via a driveway or walkway. Attached ADUs are built directly onto the side of the existing house.

5. Can I use my current house for an ADU?

Yes! In fact, many homeowners already have an ADU built into their homes. If you're interested in doing this, you'll need to talk to your local municipality about any permits you may need.

6. Do I need a permit to build an ADU on my property?

You definitely need a permit to build anything on your property. A permit is issued by your local municipality and it gives you permission to build something on your land. You'll need to get a permit before you start building your ADU.
