  • Your first question might be... What the heck is an ADU??? Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU) have been known by many names: granny flats, in-law units, backyard cottages, guest houses, carriage houses, secondary units and more. I thought this definition from the City of Los Angeles summed it up well: An ADU is an attached or detached residential dwelling unit that provides complete independent living facilities for one or more persons and is located on a lot with a proposed or existing primary residence. It shall include permanent provisions for living, sleeping, eating, cooking and sanitation on the same lot as the single family or multifamily dwelling is or will be situated.

Our Goal

Help local residents take advantage of the State laws that empower them to build small affordable housing solutions on property they already own or wish to acquire. ADUs can help individuals and families address their changing housing needs and can even go so far as to provide them with a supplemental income stream.
