Accessory Dwelling Unit
At Carmel Home Remodeling, incorporating an Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) on to your property is a task that we are proficient in –you can find no one better to create, remodel or convert your garage into an ADU.
What is an AUD?
An Accessory Dwelling Unit (AUD) is a creation that dates back in history. It is a small dwelling created within your property but aside from the main structure of the house. It is an independent living area that could be in the form of:
- An apartment like structure on the roof of your house.
- A small hut/cottage/house in close vicinity, but inside the boundaries of the property, to your house.
- An independent living area in the basement.
How many types are there?
There are three basic types of AUDs:
This type of ADU is one that is inside the main structure of the house. For instance, a basement apartment or living space could be considered an internal AUD.
An attached ADU is one that enables direct contact to the main structure of the house through entries, windows, a shared wall and the like.
A detached ADU is one that is completely independent of the main structure of the house, often existing a few inches away from it.
No matter the type of ADU you are looking to create, they all add value to your property. As an additional feature to the property you have created, it is considered an asset when selling. Additionally, having an ADU built could be beneficial in the following ways as well:
- You could accommodate a larger number of people if need be.
- You could create more housing options to choose from if your ADU is built extensively.
- You could generate a monthly income via rent.
- It could be the place where your elders stay as they age.
- It could be a place that can house your child if need be.
- It could be an office or working space for you.
What are some details to be careful of?
When it comes to ADUs, there are certain laws that have to be followed. As a company that specializes in building and development, these are precautions that we take care of for you. Many states and countries allow for AUDs to be created for specific purposes, neighborhoods, sizes, and styles. Additionally, the law also requires for AUDs to be registered so that they can be declared as part of the property, legally.
