Accessory Dwelling Units California
ADU’s In California
An accessory dwelling unit (ADU) in California is a legal and regulatory term for a secondary house that shares the building lot of a larger, primary home. The unit cannot be bought or sold separately, but they are often used to provide additional income through rent or to house a family member. We build our ADUs in Anaheim with prefabricated construction to save time and money for clients. Prefabricated construction is less disruptive to home owners and neighborhood as we can typically complete a project onsite in a few weeks once home is built in our factory. Check out a few examples of ADU Installations in California!

Tiny Home vs ADU
What is difference between a Tiny Home and an Accessory Dwelling Unit in California?
Sometimes nothing! A Tiny Home aka a Park Model is technically an RV that cannot exceed 400 sq. ft. Many cities like San Diego and Los Angeles allow Tiny Homes / Park Models as ADUs. Many of the Tiny Homes we offer are built to both ANSI and CBC to satisfy local building officials – PLUS we feel it provides a better built home. We have many models that include lofts and porches that are not included in the livable space but extend the actual usable space.
ADU Zoning in California
State laws have made it easier to build in ADU in every city in California. By right you can built an 800 sq. ft. ADU and many areas allow up to 1,200 sq. ft. ADUs can be built on single-family or multifamily residential zoned lots. ADUs are allowed in all residential zones. Parking requirement have been relaxed. Setback Side and Rear have been shrunk to 4’. Permit Fees and have been reduced and in some cases waived. Bottom line is it’s a good time to add extra space as laws are in your favor.
