Inhabitable additions to your home, known as accessory dwelling units (ADUs), can be invaluable for both personal use and the ability to rent them out to other people in certain areas. They also add curb appeal and value to your property. Homeowners are able to get creative with the space that they own and install a variety of different structures or convert existing ones into livable spaces for residents.

With that said, some state and local laws have prevented property owners from building these installations onto their home or converting existing structures into new living spaces in the past. The good news for property owners is that recently, new laws have been passed that have eased restrictions, allowing homeowners the chance to do with their space as they please.
