An ADU, or Additional Dwelling Unit, is a great way to add value to your property. ADUs are an affordable housing option that can generate income while adding space for the family. ADUs have been around since the late 1800s when they were primarily added as servants’ quarters or small apartments (Cottages). Nowadays ADUs serve many purposes and offer an opportunity for homeowners to build equity in their neighborhoods by increasing density without compromising the quality of life.
If you’re considering building an ADU on your property give us a call today for a free consultation.
You can find ADUs in all shapes and sizes, from small cottages to full-fledged apartments. In many cities around the U.S., ADUs have become a vital way to offer more affordable housing options, especially in areas where development and construction are limited. ADUs typically cost less to build than a standalone house or apartment building which can help homeowners affordably increase the density of their neighborhoods while still maintaining the quality of life for themselves and their families.
Deschutes County’s regulations are surprisingly accommodating when it comes to building an ADU on your property. ADUs are allowed on any lot in Deschutes County and can be up to 1400 square feet.
ADUs can be stand-alone or they can be apartment-style living spaces built over a garage or separate from the main dwelling. If you want to add an ADU to your property give us a call today.
