Definition of ADU
An accessory dwelling unit (ADU) is a legal and regulatory term for a secondary house or apartment that shares the building lot of a larger, primary house. ADU is also known as an in-law or mother-in-law unit, secondary dwelling unit, granny flat or carriage house. An ADU has its own kitchen, living area and a separate entrance. An ADU may be attached to a house or garage, or it can also be built as a stand-alone unit, but it generally will make use of the water and energy connections of the primary house.
Types of ADU
An ADU that’s separated from the primary home. This can be a ground up new construction or a detached garage conversion. The main advantage of a detached ADU is independence. Because the entrance is separate and physically removed from the main house, occupants can come and go as they please with minimal disruption. Drawback: The main drawback of a detached ADU is building and maintenance costs.
An ADU that’s connected to the primary house. This is a great solution if there isn’t enough space on the lot for a detached unit. They may or may not share mechanical appliances with the main unit, depending on the existing appliances’ capacity.
An existing garage that is converted into ADU. This is often the cheapest and quickest way to add a livable unit to a property. Regardless if it’s an attached or detached unit, it can be expanded up to 1200 sq ft in most cases.
When part of the house is converted to an ADU, is called as the Internal ADU. Many convert their attic or basement. They may or may not have separate external entrances, though they invariably have separate, secured doors accessible from an internal foyer or hallway. In most cases, they share utility service and mechanical appliances with the main unit.
