Accessory Dwelling Units

Building an accessory dwelling unit (ADU) on your property can provide you a steady source of rental income and prove to be an excellent investment. There are many things to consider when turning your basement, garage or vacant space on your lot into an ADU, and that’s where having an experienced ADU builder on your side can make the difference.

Suite Additions has years of experience building ADUs that maximize your rental income potential and “granny flats” that allow multigenerational families to remain independent while living together.

What is an ADU?

An Accessory Dwelling Unit is a smaller, auxiliary dwelling unit on the same lot or within a house, attached house, or manufactured home. The unit includes its own independent living facilities with provisions for sleeping, cooking, and sanitation, designed for residential occupancy independent of the primary dwelling unit. The unit may have a separate exterior entrance or an entrance to an internal common area accessible to the outside.

“From blueprints to permits to hammering the final nail in the wall, Suite Additions can design and build your ADU as elaborate or as simple as your needs dictate.”
