ADU’s & Additions

SKS BLOG

When it comes to improving our homes, there are many different projects that can be done to make them more functional, comfortable, and aesthetically pleasing. Two popular types of home improvement projects are additions and ADUs, or Accessory Dwelling Units.

Additions:

An addition is a type of home renovation project where you add extra space onto your existing home. The goal of an addition is to expand the living space and make your home more functional. Some common types of additions include:

  1. Room additions: Adding an extra bedroom, bathroom, or family room can give your family more space to spread out and enjoy.
  2. Second-story additions: Adding an entire second story to your home, which can dramatically increase the living space.
  3. Sunroom or conservatory additions: These are typically glass-enclosed rooms that can be used as a sitting area, greenhouse, or dining room.
  4. Garage conversions: Converting your existing garage into a living space.

Benefits of Additions:

  1. Increased living space: An addition can provide you with the extra space you need to accommodate a growing family or to create a dedicated workspace or hobby room.
  2. Enhanced home value: Adding square footage to your home can increase its value and make it more attractive to potential buyers.
  3. Customizable: With an addition, you have the freedom to design the space exactly as you want it, including choosing the materials and finishes.

ADUs:

An Accessory Dwelling Unit, or ADU, is a self-contained living space that is located on the same property as a single-family home. ADUs are becoming increasingly popular as a way to create extra living space or increasing income without the need for a full-scale addition.

Types of ADUs:

  1. Detached ADUs: These are standalone structures that are built on the same property as the main house.
  2. Attached ADUs: These are living spaces that are attached to the main house but have a separate entrance.
  3. Garage ADUs: These are living spaces that are built above or within an existing garage.

Benefits of ADUs:

  1. Increased rental income: ADUs can be rented out to generate extra income for the homeowner.
  2. Aging in place: ADUs provide a great solution for aging in place, allowing elderly relatives to live close by and maintain their independence.

In conclusion, additions are great for creating more living space within the main house, while ADUs provide a way to create a self-contained living space on the same property. Ultimately, the best choice will depend on your specific needs and budget. If you're considering a home renovation project, it's important to carefully weigh the benefits and drawbacks of each option.
