What is an ADU?

• An Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) is a residential unit that can be added to a lot with an existing single-family home or multi-family development.
ADUs can be located in a few different places, either detached (such as a separate building in a backyard), attached to a part of the primary residence as an addition, or be converted from an existing garage or other part of the primary residence.
ADUs are independent rental units that have their own kitchens, bathrooms, and entrances.
ADUs have many names:
- accessory apartments
- secondary suites
- in-law unit
- granny flat
- studio
- carriage house
- etc.

What is a JADU?
• A Junior Accessory Dwelling Unit (JADU) is a part of an existing single-family home that is re-purposed as a private dwelling by incorporating a small kitchen and separate entrance.
• The difference between a JADU and ADU is that JADUs must be located within the existing primary residence and be no greater than 500 square feet in size.
• JADUs require owner occupancy either in the primary residence or accessory unit.
ADUs and Junior ADUs Must meet Energy Code: Energy Calculations / Title 24 forms need to be submitted to enforcement agencies with Building permit applications
