An accessory dwelling unit (ADU) is a small structure that shares a single family lot with a more spacious main dwelling. It can be separated from the main home or converted from an existing structure like a garage or storage area. ADUs are versatile spaces that can house people of all ages. They can be converted to fit people with various needs.
Here are the kinds of households that benefit the most from accessory dwelling units.
Families who have children who have grown up and moved out may want to create an ADU. They can lease out their primary dwelling for passive income, or they can make it a space available for “boomerang kids” or children who have recently finished college. These young adults are getting a hold of their careers, but are moving back home due to high living costs.
Whether you have a remotely based job or are running a family business, then an ADU is a worthy investment. You can make your own private home office.
Individuals in Need of Care
Families with loved ones who need delicate care can benefit a lot from ADUs. Aside from having the convenience of being around them all the time, this remodeling project is more affordable and comfortable compared to transferring them to a nursing home or an assisted living facility. Make sure that your ADU is built with comfort and accessibility in mind.
