Suppose you’re looking to build an ADU or accessory dwelling unit in California; you’re going to need to take a few things into consideration, including laws and regulations in your area. There are many other things you need to take into consideration, though when you’re planning on building an ADU on your property, why would you want to build an ADU in the first place? What kinds of benefits would you have on your property if you built one?
Uses of ADUs
ADUs can be used in a wide variety of different ways, including but not limited to remote working environments and ‘granny flats’ or additional housing either for yourself or family members who want to be closer to home. On top of that, you can craft an ADU for anything your imagination can hold. From a personal gym to a full-blown library to literally anything else you can think of. No matter what you can think of, you can craft your ADU to specifically bow to your project’s vision. In short, ADUs can be used to make any building designed to your own needs and desires; all you need to do is know what you want from your ADU.
Costs of ADUs
ADUs can be a little costly, at roughly 150 to 300 US dollars per square foot for the finished building. Regardless of that, for many places in California, the cost of an ADU isn’t much at all; it all depends on your way of life and how you live. For some people, ADUs are going to be more expensive than they can manage. If you’re able to secure the funds to build an ADU, you can rest assured that you’ll end up with an increase in your property value. So long as you can finance building an ADU, you can expect plenty of use out of it for years to come.
