An ADU is a self-contained home smaller than the main house and is part of the same property. ADUs vary in size, but always contain a kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom. Feel free to browse our gallery of ADU projects.
Squeezing every inch out of the buildable area such as this unit with 5 feet on either side to the property line.
To make the best use of space in a limited size building means bathrooms are usually simple and on the smaller side.
ADUs require compact facilities so a stacked washer/dryer was installed in the closet.
In this ADU the galley kitchen is open to the living/bedroom space and a generous walk-in closet sits behind the popular "barn door." The ceilings were raised to maximize the volume and make this small space feel much larger.
