Thinking of a good way to enhance your home? According to one of the leading design-build firms in the area, you should consider getting an accessory dwelling unit, or ADU. What is it and what are the biggest benefits of getting one for your home? Read on to find out.
More Living Space
An ADU is the perfect addition to a home with very limited living spaces. Perhaps you’re short of a room for guests or someone wants a more private setup without having to renovate the main home. Regardless of the reason, an ADU can provide you with the extra living space you need.
Aging In Place Addition
Aging-in-place setups can be difficult to implement in some homes, which is why experts on custom home building services recommend getting an ADU. Because everything in an ADU is installed from scratch, you won’t have to worry about affecting the layout or main structure of your home.
A Possible Source of Income
An ADU can serve as a passive source of income because it’s possible to rent it out without compromising your main home’s privacy. This is a much more affordable option compared to having to buy a separate house and lot for you to rent out. It’s also much easier to revert it back to a private-use unit.
Getting Help from Experts
Because an ADU is technically a second house on a smaller scale, our experts recommend seeking professional home remodeling services. This way, you don’t have to worry about costly installation mistakes affecting your ADU’s energy efficiency and you can also be sure that the unit follows the building codes set by the local government.
