What is an ADU?

An accessory dwelling unit (ADU)—known by many names, such as a “granny flat”, in-law unit, secondary dwelling unit, backyard home, etc.—is an extra living space that is located on the same property as a single-family or multi-family residence.

There are four kinds of ADUs:

Detached ADU

This type of ADU has to be constructed from scratch and is sometimes referred to as a backyard cottage because it is usually situated in the backyard, separate from the main house. It’s basically a little house in your yard.

One of the benefits of a detached ADU is privacy. However, a more complicated permitting and construction process will make it a more time-consuming and expensive project, especially without an experienced builder on your side.

Garage Conversion

A garage conversion, as the name implies, is an ADU that is built by renovating and often expanding an existing garage. It is a little lighter on the wallet and still comes with privacy and a lot of convenience.

Often these are used as home studios or rental units that can still provide the homeowner with significant extra income for a lower initial investment.

Attached ADU

An attached ADU is built as an attachment, often to the side of the main house, on top of a garage or even as a second story.

It does come with a little less privacy than a detached ADU. However, if a homeowner wants to increase square footage in the most cost-efficient manner, this ADU is a great choice.

Interior Conversion

‘Basement apartment’ or ‘mother-in-law unit’ are a couple of the many names for this ADU, created when an attic, basement or other interior space is converted into a dwelling unit (a bit less common in California).

A couple of the benefits of an interior conversion are privacy, no new construction and permits are convenient and easy to get.
