        Accessory Dwelling Units or ADU have become a very popular trend in the US in general, and in California in particular, some of them you have undoubtfully seen here in Lincoln. There are many reasons why people want to have ADU on their property and which contributed to the popularity of this trend.

        Also, there is one more type of dwelling unit that can be constructed, which is called junior ADU, and its main difference from the attached ADUs is the fact that it is not a completely new building; it is a remodeled part of the main single-family home, usually, a garage which shall not be more than 500 square meters and can share a bathroom with the main house.

        Regardless of the type of ADU, most of them have necessities like a kitchen, a sleeping place, and a bathroom.

        ADU Building Lincoln

        When you have finally decided to build an ADU on your property, and even created a plan, regardless of the type of accessory dwelling unit, even if it is a junior ADU, there is one more thing to consider with these units, namely states’ and city’s legal regulations on ADUs. Here you can read the main points of these regulations.

        1. The location

        The first point to consider before you decide to create an ADU is whether or not such an object can be built on your territory at all. Usually, most on the most of homesteads in Lincoln ADUs are permitted and can be constructed. However, there are some exceptions, so it is always better to check it before starting any works.

        2. Minimum size

        There is some good news for you; in Lincoln, requirements on the minimum size do not exist so that you will have more freedom in your wishes. Also, such requirements can not be found in state law.

        3. Maximum ADUs on one property

        The general rule is that you can not have more than one detached ADU with one single-family home, regardless of the size in square feet, but sometimes it can be two. Regarding the multiple-family houses, the situation is not so clear because it depends on the type of ADU that you want to build and on the number of ADUs already constructed on the property. However, you should not worry about it, and our law consultants will help you to understand your situation and to know how many in-law units you can build.

        4. Square footage

        Regarding the question of the maximum size allowed (in square feet), we can say that according to the state law, it foremost depends on the type of dwelling that you are intended to build. An especially big difference in maximum size can be found between attached and detached ADUs.

        5. Maximum height

        Considering the issue of maximum height we can find that according to the state law in the city of Lincoln, an ADU model can be built with a height of 16 feet (one store) maximum.

        6. Location within the property

        In Lincoln, there are some regulations on the minimum distances of allocation of ADUs. By the law, ADUs are allowed to be located at least 4 feet away from the side and the rear property lines. This was the rule for attached and detached ADUs, while for junior and conversion ADUs, rules are not so exact, and they just state that such an ADU has to be located at a sufficient distance in order to ensure fire safety.

        7. Parking requirement

        Detached and attached ADUs, in Lincoln city ought to have one parking space. However, some projects can be exempt from such requirements, the rules on exemptions are always overly complicated, but you should not worry about it; our lawyers will check everything for you. Furthermore, for junior and conversion ADUs no parking requirements exist.

        Prefab ADU Construction

        Our company builds ADUs of any type from prefab materials of different forms, and then we construct an accessory dwelling unit right on your property. Our prefab materials comply with every page of law regulations in California, so you can be sure of their safety. Also, the main advantage of using prefab is that the speed of building is much better regardless of how many places ADU takes in square feet.

        ADU Housing

        As we have said at the start of the article ADUs, have become a popular means of development of households in California. And there are actually a lot of reasons why having an ADU, regardless of whether it is a usual ADU or converted from the garage, became so popular in California.

        The first reason for building an ADU is to have some additional income. For example, if your house is in a place that is very attractive for tourists, you can easily rent ADU through Airbnb or booking. Income from such rent can pay off the construction cost very fast. And rented ADU can become a real business for you.

        A second most popular reason for building an accessory dwelling unit in California is to have a guest house. Obviously, people who have guests almost every weekend do want an attached ADU to host them because they, in most cases, do not want their lifestyle to be disrupted by guests, while in general love having them, whether it is a family member or a friend.

        The third popular reason for accessory dwelling units to be created is to build them for aging parents of whom care has to be taken. It is a sad reality of life that our parents are aging, so we want them to live closer to us, but at the same time, it would be better for you as well for your parents to have the comfort feeling of their own house.

        Moreover, we should not forget that another popular reason for the building of accessory dwelling units is to have additional space for a workshop or home office, and in times of COVID-19, this reason became the most popular because a lot of people moved to the remote work, and they do not want to be distracted by their family during the workday. Moreover, most people do not like to rest and to work on the same square feet.

        How much does it cost to build an ADU in California?

        The total price for building an ADU in California would depend on many circumstances, such as the location of ADU, type of ADU, size, and materials used. Also, if you do not want your ADU to look like granny flats, such things as decoration and design would also enhance the price. To understand the approximate price of your ADU, you can book a free consultation in our company.

        Can I build an ADU on my property in California?

        The exact answer to this question would depend on the type of your property and of the type of ADU, because in some cases, in California, you cannot build a usual ADU but can build converted or junior ADUs. Our experts will always help you to know whether your property allows ADU to be built in.

        What are the requirements for an ADU in California?

        To know the exact requirements, you can always check the building Code of California. In the code, most of the information can be found. However, many cities, including Lincoln, have their own regulations on some issues, such as minimum lot size and squire footage of units, or whether or not you have to build a garage, and this information you can find in a respective city code.

        Do I need a permit for ADU in California?

        The general rule is that you do need a granted permit for constructing ADU units in California, even it is a remodeled garage. But there is no need to worry, and we build exactly as every page of the code wants, and our lawyers would help you with all the necessary documentation.
