Accessory Dweling Units
Pacific Construction ADU Design & Construction
Are you looking to add an apartment, or a second house on your property? Are you looking for additional rental income? Do you want to increase the value of your property? You may want to consider taking advantage of the change in State law that allows you to add a second house, called an Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU), to your property.
An accessory dwelling unit (ADU), also known as a "mother-in-law" or "granny flat,” are attached or detached residential dwelling units, on the same lot as an existing single-family dwelling unit which is zoned for single-family or multifamily use, that provides complete independent living facilities for one or more persons. This includes permanent provisions for living, sleeping, eating, cooking, and sanitation,all on the same parcel as the primary, single-family dwelling.
An ADU can be located, upon issuance of a building permit, on residentially zoned property that has an existing single-family residence. Only one ADU is allowed on qualifying parcels. An ADU may not be placed on properties that are zoned and developed with duplexes or other types of multi-family housing, or on properties that have an existing guest living quarters, accessory living quarters, or accessory apartment. However, an existing guest living quarters, accessory living quarters, or accessory apartment could potentially be converted into an ADU.
Although different jurisdiction in San Diego County have different rules and regulations but, in most parts, the maximum size limits is 1200 S.F., provided you have adequate space for the additional parking spaces, and septic improvements (if required) and also type of ADU (ADU, JADU, PRADU).
