There are many reasons why people build accessory dwelling units (ADU). Some build them to house members of the family while others build them to earn additional income through rent. Regardless of the reason, the fact remains that an ADU is an excellent investment. But before you start building an ADU, below are things you should do.

Check the zoning laws in your area

It is essential to check the zoning laws of your neighborhood before you start building an ADU. Some neighborhoods require residents to have a permit before they start building. Consult the local regulatory body to know what permits are needed and what steps you need to follow to get them.

Create a plan

Planning is crucial when building an ADU. Plan well before you start the construction process. A good plan will not only make the construction process easy for you and the contractor but will also lower your construction cost.

Create a budget

Ensure that all your finances are in order before you begin the construction process. You don’t want to start building, then run out of cash before you complete the project. Most ADU projects stall because of poor budget planning. It is, therefore, important to have a budget before you start building the ADU.

Consider contractor experience and professionalism

The contractor that you choose to build your ADU will determine if your project will be successful or not. If you choose someone who lacks experience in building ADUs, then you will most likely be disappointed. Choose a contractor who is experienced and highly professional. The contractor should also be registered and up to date with the latest ADU building technology.
