California Accessory Dwelling Units - ADUs

Button

ADUs are called many things: Backyard Homes, Granny Flats, Second Home, in-law units, in-law quarters, out-law quarters, tiny homes, & casitas. Essentially, any home that is located next to a Primary home. 

ADUs are a great way to increase the value of your property, add rental housing, or creat the multi-generational approach for your family. 

California keeps adding new laws yearly which make this simple resource easy to achieve. However, there are still many steps along the way. We are here to guide you and work for you to make it happen. Click on your city or county below to learn more about your new home.
