Accessory dwelling units, or ADUs, are a relatively easy way to create more usable space on your property. They are small units that are separate from the main dwelling, but still on your property. There are several different types of ADUs – you can convert your garage into one, build an apartment above the garage, build a basement apartment, or even build a freestanding structure on your property space. ADU construction is an excellent way to accommodate growing families and their needs. Here’s how you can use an ADU to create more space for your family.

Support aging parents

ADUs are often referred to as granny flats because they have traditionally been used as a place for older parents to live when they want to be close to family. ADUs are great for aging parents because you can keep them close by while still ensuring that they have their own space and privacy. You can even design your ADU to accommodate your parents’ health and wellness needs.

Give kids their own space

As kids grow up, they want more space and privacy. You can use your ADU to give kids extra room to play and explore. There are so many different ways you can use your ADU for your kids – you can create a playroom, a study area, a TV room, or even an extra bedroom if your main house is starting to feel cramped. ADUs are also great for adult kids who may not be fully ready to leave the nest, but still want their own privacy.

Create an office

If any members of your family work from home, your space can start to feel crowded very quickly. Turning an ADU into an office can help you be more productive and create some separation between home and work – something that’s important for any family dynamic. Offices can also double as study spaces for students.
