    Why choose an ADU (Accessory Dwelling Units)

    The popularity of Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) in the Bay Area is on the rise. With the cost of living in Lafayette, CA and the surrounding areas continually increasing, many homeowners have chosen to invest in an ADU. An ADU can provide your household with an additional income source, increase your home investment by adding value, or provide additional space for you and your loved ones.

    Different types of ADUs

    There are different types of ADUs, each with its own benefits. The most common ADU found in Lafayette, CA and the surrounding Bay Area is a detached ADU. This means it was constructed as a stand alone structure. These accessory dwelling units are typically built as new construction. A detached ADU is the most popular because it acts as a small house with its own plumbing, HVAC and electrical systems. Typically this type of ADU will have its own kitchen, bathroom and even a bedroom. Detached ADUs are also a great option for those needing a home office space with privacy. Another type of ADU found in the Bay Area is built as a home addition, or a garage conversion. This option can be more cost effective than building a detached structure as it is connected to the systems of your existing home.
