This is the official term for any type of secondary living unit that you plan on building on your property in addition to your primary home. Called Granny Flats, Casitas, Garage Conversions, Studio - the State of California coined the term "Accessory Dwelling Unit" to cover everything. They are an "accessory" to an existing home on a single or multi family lot.
ADUs provide full bathroom and kitchen facilities and require permitting. They fall into size and design restrictions as well as other local-zoning requirements. The State mandated, in 2020, that all cities and counties must remove Impact Fees for ADUs built under 750 SF. This is a HUGE savings for those who are cost sensitive yet want to build another, separate living space on their property. ADU Gurus shares your construction cost sensitivity and we focus our business entirely on ADUs. We can help you choose an ADU Contractor to construct your home. Call us today, we want to hear what you'd like to build - 760-313-1000.

ADU Gurus provides permit ready plans for you to submit to your city's Building Department. These include MEP plans - Mechanical, Electrical & Plumbing, and Title 24 docs (a requirement that addresses environmental aspects of your build).
