What is an ADU (Accessory Dwelling Unit) in Anaheim?

What is an ADU? An accessory dwelling unit (ADU) in Anaheim is a legal and regulatory term for a secondary house that shares the building lot of a larger, primary home. The unit cannot be bought or sold separately, but they are often used to provide additional income through rent or to house a family member. We build our ADUs in Anaheim with prefabricated construction to save time and money for clients. Prefabricated construction is less disruptive to homeowners and neighborhoods as we can typically complete a project onsite in a few weeks once the home is built in our factory.

Tiny Home vs ADU

What is the difference between a Tiny Home and an Accessory Dwelling Unit in Anaheim?
Sometimes nothing! A Tiny Home aka a Park Model is technically an RV that cannot exceed 400 sq. ft. Many cities like San Diego and Anaheim allow Tiny Homes / Park Models as ADUs. Many of the Tiny Homes we offer are built to both ANSI and CBC to satisfy local building officials – PLUS we feel it provides a better-built home. We have many models that include lofts and porches that are not included in the livable space but extend the actual usable space.

ADU Zoning in Anaheim

State laws have made it easier to build an accessory dwelling unit in every city in California. By right you can build an 800 sq. ft. ADU and many areas allow up to 1,200 sq. ft. ADUs can be built on single-family or multifamily residential zoned lots. ADUs are allowed in all residential zones. Parking requirements have been relaxed. Setback Side and Rear have been shrunk to 4’. Permit Fees have been reduced and in some cases waived. The bottom line is it’s a good time to add extra space as laws are in your favor.
