Building an Accessory Dwelling Unit in Sonoma County
An accessory dwelling unit is a complete housing unit that’s considered to be part of the original house. It may be attached to the house or a standalone apartment, but you’re still the owner of the space. If you decide to sell the house, the ADU is also part of the transaction. ADUs come in different forms, including:
These are standalone housing units that aren’t connected to the house itself. They have their own foundation and utility connections, and they provide more privacy than some other types of ADUs.
Attached Internal Apartment
Attached internal apartments are complete living spaces that are part of the house itself. These could be basement or attic apartments. They don’t offer quite as much privacy as detached units or external apartments, but they’re generally simpler and less expensive to build and maintain.
Attached External Apartments
Attached external apartments are fully functional living spaces that are connected to a house but don’t actually lie within it. One example would be a separate apartment built over an attached garage.
Several regulations come into play when you’re having an ADU built. All those protocols are meant to maximize privacy and functionality for your ADU as well as your main house. Additionally, certain zoning laws apply to these types of units. We know the protocols for Sonoma County, and we understand all the zoning laws and regulations. That means we can act as your full-service ADU construction and remodeling partners.
What Are the Pros and Cons of ADUs?
Accessory dwelling units come with a number of advantages. With more adult children living with their parents and a growing number of aging parents moving in with their adult children, ADUs are fundamental to many families these days. They can allow you to keep your family together and take care of elderly family members more easily and conveniently without anyone having to give up their privacy or independence.
Many homeowners also use ADUs to generate an additional source of income. You can rent out your ADU to short- or long-term tenants. If you’re looking to downsize but don’t want to leave your home, you could even move into the ADU and rent the main house to tenants. Vacation rentals are becoming more popular by the minute, so that’s also an option an ADU could bring to the table.
When it comes to the disadvantages of ADUs, regulations, zoning laws, and maintenance are the primary factors to consider. Maintenance is typically more expensive with detached units because their structural components and electrical and plumbing systems are independent of the main house.
In terms of zoning and regulations, making sure you remain in compliance isn’t necessarily a straightforward process. Of course, we’re experts on those points, so we can help make your ADU addition as safe and simple as possible.
