Own a home in Vancouver Washington? Been hearing this term ADU come up? My ADU is happy to help. The city of Vancouver defines an Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) is one or more rooms with a private bath and kitchen facilities comprising an independent, self-contained dwelling unit within or attached to a single-family dwelling or in a detached building on the same lot as the primary dwelling unit. An ADU is distinguishable from a duplex in that, unlike a duplex, it is clearly subordinate to the primary dwelling unit, both in use and appearance.
An ADU is legal only with an established building permit.
If the proposed ADU is a new detached structure, My ADU will submit the Residential – New Construction application (If attached, submit the Residential – All other application). Both choices will require submittal of the ADU Supplemental Application as well. My ADU are your local ADU experts, and will handle the permitting process in the City of Vancouver for you.
In Vancouver, Washington ADUs are allowed as limited uses in all residential zones (R-2, R-4, R-6, R-9, R-18, R-22, R-30 and R-35).
