Why build an ADU?

ADUs can provide additional space for caregivers, grown children, elderly parents, or renters. Because ADUs can be rental units, they may produce additional income for the homeowner. “Empty-nesters” may be able to stay in their neighborhoods by moving into a smaller ADU and renting their larger existing home to pay the mortgage.
