A one-stop source about multigenerational homes, laneway houses, ADUs, granny flats, in-law units, accessory dwelling units…
AccessoryDwellings.org aims to be a one-stop reference for anyone interested in creating an accessory dwelling unit — otherwise known as a granny flat, a backyard cottage, an in-law suite, and a dozen other names.
The idea is simple: having a second small dwelling right on the same grounds (or attached to) your regular single-family house. But executing this simple idea can be rather complex.
This site aims to help, by covering all the basics — from what accessory dwellings look like to how they’re financed, used, and built. We’ll also feature images and drawings for on-the-ground ADUs, plus the stories behind them. We’re all volunteers here, so we welcome your contributions.
Thanks! The editors.
