California finds itself in the midst of a tremendously challenging housing shortage. As of January 1, 2018, laws championed by former Governor Brown and others allowed for Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) by right.
Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) are known by many names: granny flats, in-law units, backyard cottages, secondary units and more. No matter what you call them, ADUs are an innovative, affordable, effective option for adding much-needed housing in California.
Some of the benefits include:
Our Pepper Drive project is being built in Los Altos, in California’s Silicon Valley, where rents and home prices are the highest in the country. The project includes a new stand alone ADU of approximately 1100 s.f., as well as a new garage to be added to the existing primary residence.
