Episode 9: Accessory Dwelling Units: The basics
"If you’re converting an existing habitable space, like a basement that already has everything you need, maybe it’s only going to take a couple of months to do the construction. If it’s a new-construction ADU … we’re talking about a year to a year and a half for the homeowner to execute the plan."
— ADU Specialist, Kol Peterson
Accessory Dwelling Units, or ADUs, are becoming increasingly popular for adding space and potentially generating income. Navigating whether to build one or convert an existing space can be tricky, but in this episode, we’ll take you through the process and how to decide if an ADU is right for you. Nadeska chats with ADU Specialist Kol Peterson about the many types of ADUs, a typical construction timeline and costs, and how a home equity loan could help you pay for it.
NOTE: The title LOB provided for this episode was "ADU basics." We are recommending changing it to "Accessory Dwelling Units: The basics" as ADU is not a commonplace term.
