That’s why we intend to show you that while there are many visible economic benefits when building an Accessory Dwelling Unit, you will also be able to find many other advantages related to them.

Economic Benefits

ADUs provide flexibility in neighborhoods by using existing infrastructure, such as roads and schools, for example, reducing the demand for this type of architecture’s expansion.
They create housing options near economic activities: jobs, shopping centers, providing an alternative solution for affordable housing opportunities.
They increase job demand in the construction industry. Nearly half of your ADU budget is used for labor, the other half for materials. Moreover, as ADUs are built locally, money circulates inside the community.
They generate tax revenue and more taxable income for cities.
They build wealth for homeowners who attempt to use the unit for rental income, and may also help with stabilizing housing costs.

Environmental Benefits

ADUs are a type of construction with what we consider to be a small environmental footprint, using less energy both in construction as well as in habitation.
This reduces energy consumption for heating and cooling, the majority of energy used on buildings.

Social Benefits

ADUs mean small housing units, yet residential zones, which are commonly in short supply. American housing options tend to not match our demographic tendency, which has lately shown individuals seeking smaller city residences.
They are more affordable opportunities in residential zones.
They are perfect for family groups to live nearby yet keeping everyone’s privacy.
ADUs mean a direct solution to seniors near retirement, allowing them to find affordable housing, downsize and cost control.
