ADU Addition    Location:  Covina, California   Scope of Work:  Architectural Design & Construction Project Management    Description   Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs), also known as granny flats, in-law suites, or secondary dwelling units, are separate, self-contained living spaces within a property that are designed to accommodate additional residents. These units can be attached to the main residence, located within the same structure, or exist as a separate, detached structure on the same property. ADUs are often used to provide housing for family members, guests, or to generate rental income. Here are some key points about Accessory Dwelling Units:
  1. Types of ADUs:
    • Attached ADU: Integrated into the primary residence, such as a converted basement or garage.
    • Detached ADU: A separate structure on the same property, such as a standalone cottage or small apartment.
  2. Uses:
    • Family Housing: ADUs are commonly used to house family members, such as aging parents or adult children.
    • Rental Income: Homeowners may choose to rent out the ADU to generate additional income.
    • Guest Accommodation: ADUs provide a private space for guests or visiting family members.
