Ivory Homes: Accessory Dwelling Units

What is an ADU?

Accessory Dwelling Units are separate self-contained living spaces, added on as additions to a primary residence. These additions are usually smaller than the primary residence and are commonly used as guest houses, home offices, or housing for family members such as mother-in-laws, adult children starting their families. ADUs can be attached or built separately from the primary residence and are gaining popularity as a solution to the housing shortage and as a way for homeowners to maximize the ability to generate income through their property.

How Can We Build More ADUs?

IThe best time to build ADUs is when the property is first built. This allows for proper infrastructure and parking considerations. ADUs are much more expensive in older homes. ADUs are becoming locally and federally governed. Becoming familiar with local and federal policies, and letting your voice be heard is essential to maximize your property's value and capabilities.
