The AEB Tenant Improvements Experience

We understand how important your business is to you.

In the ever-changing landscape of housing solutions, Accessory Dwelling Units, or ADUs, have emerged as a game-changer in Arizona and across the nation. ADUs are typically known by other names such as casitas, mother-in-law suites, or multi-generational housing. These versatile structures offer a myriad of benefits, but what exactly is an ADU?

What’s An ADU?

An Accessory Dwelling Unit is a self-contained living space that is typically located on the same property as a primary residence. ADUs can come in a variety of forms, such as converted garages, basement apartments, small dwellings, casitas, or additions to an existing house. They are fully equipped with living, cooking, and bathroom facilities, deeming them independent living spaces.

Advantages of ADUs

One of the key advantages of ADUs in Arizona is their potential to increase housing stock without the need for extensive new construction. They offer homeowners an opportunity to make efficient use of their property, optimizing underutilized spaces or adding new structures, all while adhering to local zoning and building regulations.

In addition to their housing and income potential, ADUs have several environmental benefits. ADUs often utilize existing infrastructure, reducing the need for new utility connections and decreasing the overall carbon footprint.

What Are ADUs Used For?

ADUs can serve a multitude of purposes. They are often used as rental units, providing homeowners with an additional source of income. They can also be used as in-law suites, allowing multi-generational families to live together while maintaining a sense of independence. Furthermore, ADUs can be used as home offices, studios, or creative spaces, contributing to the growing trend of remote work.
