Updated: Jul 25, 2023

There are several types of ADUs (Accessory Dwelling Units) that can be built to meet different needs and preferences. Some common types of ADUs include:

Detached ADU

A separate structure that stands alone on the property, such as a small cottage or tiny house. Detached ADUs provide complete privacy and independence from the main house


Attached ADU

It is connected to the main house and shares one or more walls. It can have a separate entrance or be accessed through the main house, making it an integrated part of the property.


Garage Conversion

Converting an existing garage into a livable space. This is a popular option for adding an ADU while utilizing existing structures.


Junior ADU (JADU)

A smaller unit that is created within the main house. It typically includes its own bathroom and kitchenette, providing a compact living space.


Multi-Family ADU

Consist of two or more separate living units within a single structure. Multi-Unit ADUs are designed to accommodate multiple households or families, each with its own living space, bedrooms, bathrooms, and kitchen facilities.
