Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) come in several forms and go by several different names, including "Granny Flats," "Mother-In-Law Suites," "Guest Houses," “Backyard Homes,” “Cottages,” and more.
An ADU is a fully functioning living space with bathroom facilities, sleeping area, and a kitchen. It is a small, self-contained residential unit located on the same lot as an existing single-family home. An ADU can be a remodel of an existing interior space, an attic dwelling, a basement apartment, an addition attached to the house or garage, or a separate dwelling located on the property. An ADU cannot exceed a minimum living area of 150 square feet and maximum of 1200 square feet.
Every city/county has its own ADU zoning requirements which were created to minimize potential conflicts in the community between neighbors. Here are some of the typical requirements: a limit of building square footage, minimum lot size, parking, location on the lot, and a requirement that the owner of the property lives in one of the units.
