One of AAA Home Improvement’s specialties is creating gorgeous accessory dwelling units (ADUs). ADUs are secondary housing units that can be built on a single-family lot and can be designed to meet your specific needs.
There are many different uses for accessory dwelling units and each of them can be a smart way to maximize your property and make your space more comfortable and usable while living in your home.
Here’s a few exciting ideas if you are considering leveraging your current home’s property to add value, and possibly a new income stream:
Vacation rentals or rental property….what makes owning real estate so attractive is the potential to create more sources of revenue. Plus platforms like AirBnb or Evolve make them easy to manage. Design your ADU specifically to be used for the perfect vacation, short-term, or long-term rental for families, couples, working professionals or solo travelers.
Perhaps you have a large family or you would like to be able to accommodate your family while in town, or in transition. ADUs can be that traditional “mother-in-law” apartment or extra bedroom to provide that additional space needed for family members who are visiting or need assistance. Maybe you are preparing to have kids soon. The ADU could be the perfect place for your live-in nanny without sacrificing your privacy.
For family members inside or outside the home, if they have health conditions or aging, ADUs can be designed for with special features. Features such as grab bars, wider doorways, and wheelchair accessibility, or whatever the person may need, can offer peace of mind for you and your family member.
REMOTE WORK AND SPACE FOR HOBBIES.
More and more people work from home, sometimes a couple may both find themselves with remote jobs. ADUs can be used as a home office with dedicated workspaces for multiple people.
Many people have their passion projects, creative pursuits or side hustles as important aspects of daily life. ADUs come in handy for these activities as well and can be customized as an art or recording studio.
Have a university nearby? Or have a kid going off to college but in town? Accessory dwelling units can be used as student housing, an affordable rental option for college students.
