ADU Regulations in California
With the passage of Senate Bill 1069, that went into effect January 1, 2017, California just opened the doors for more people to build Accessory Dwelling Units aka Tiny Homes aka granny flats on their property. The law was prompted by escalating housing prices and a need for more affordable housing units. Although building secondary units on property for elderly parents coined the term “tiny homes,” real estate agents and lawmakers say rent is so high that just about everyone is trying to get in one nowadays. “It’s a modest step,” said Steve Russell, executive director of the San Diego Housing Federation. “Anything that contributes to housing supply is part of the solution . . . it’s a big drop in the bucket but it’s still just a drop in the bucket.” Bill Cavanaugh, USModular Inc said “Building an Accessory Dwelling Unit is a cost effective way to add square footage for family members or for a rental unit to offset the rising cost of homes in California. Our typical client builds an 850 sq. ft accessory dwelling unit which will have a kitchen, living room , up to 2 bedrooms and baths which is manageable and affordable for most home owners.”
