Anyone is allowed to live in an ADU. This makes it great for yourself or family to live in. You can also use it as a long-term rental unit or a short-term rental (Airbnb/VRBO) to earn a little extra income. Some jurisdictions require the property owner to live on site, whether that be in the main house or in the ADU, while other jurisdictions allow both the House and ADU to be used as rentals.

We work hard to design products/layouts that our clients will love for years to come. Some things are customizable in our ADU’s. Owners have the option of customizing colors and certain finishing materials. Ask us! We want to work with you!

Each City/County has specific regulations that determine what size ADU you can build on your property. In most cases, your ADU can be 40%-50% the size of your main house (up to 800 SF).

Each ADU comes move-in ready with a full kitchen, all full size appliances, a full bathroom, and laundry center. We handle everything from the permitting process, site work, building process and utility connections. Once we pass the final inspection by your local building department, your ADU is ready to use!

Our clients enjoy the convenience of living close to family. Using the ADU for multigenerational living or just extra living space are both great options. Renting the unit is also a great way to add revenue to your existing property. With rising housing costs our ADU’s make more financial sense than ever.

My ADU has developed plans and procedures that coordinate with the requirements from the local jurisdictions. This helps us get through permitting quicker and easier, saving you time and money.
