ADU Constructions Add On
An ADU construction add-on is a secondary structure that sits on the same lot as your home. It can be attached to or detached from the main dwelling. Examples of an ADU add-on are a detached garage with livable space above it or a guest house.
As remote work has become more prevalent, so have the requests of building ADU construction add-ons. This type of structure can provide flexible space for work and play. You could create a home office, a workshop, or an area dedicated to visiting friends and family. An ADU add-on is also a viable option for creating additional income as a rental space that sits on a property you already own.
There Are Several Benefits To ADU Construction:
While ADUs are small to medium-sized additions ranging from 850-1,000 sq ft, Junior Accessory Dwellings Units (JADUs) are a maximum size of 500 sq ft and are contained within a single-family home. JADUs include efficiency kitchens and sleeping quarters, and they offer flexibility when it comes to bathroom guidelines. A JADU can house its own bathroom or use the one available in the single-family property.
Both ADUs and JADUs must adhere to California’s requirements and be subject to various zoning regulations and rules, dependent on where you live. It is important to work with an experienced contractor who can help you navigate this process as a homeowner.
