Have you heard/seen the acronym “ADU” and wondered what it meant, but were just too laz… I mean, busy… to pull out your mobile long enough to Google it?
Then here’s the definition you’ve been waiting for:
ADU = Accessory Dwelling Unit
This is a secondary housing unit on a single family residential lot (technically you can have one on a commercial lot but they still have to be subservient to a residential unit).
End of blog, what more do you need to know, right?
Well, if you have any interest whatsoever in building an attached/detached ADU, or converting existing space (like a basement, attic, or garage) into an ADU, or buying/selling a home with something on it that seems like an ADU… then there is A LOT more to know.
