What the Heck is an "ADU" and What it Could Mean For You
An ADU is short for Accessory Dwelling Unit. It’s a separate, secondary dwelling that shares a single-family residential lot with the owner’s primary home. People often build an ADU on their property as lodging for an aging relative or temporary homes for those adult children that aren’t quite ready to fly the coop and enter the housing market.
ADUs are the perfect setup for people who desire their own space yet benefit from being near their family.
