What Is an Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU)?
ADUs, often referred to as guest houses, casitas, or granny flats, are self-contained living areas that can be fully detached structures or attached to an existing home, complete with their own external entrance. An ADU typically includes all of the amenities needed for independent living, such as a kitchen, bathroom, living area, and sleeping quarters. At Affordable Housing Solutions, we are dedicated to providing you with compliant ADU solutions that align perfectly with the new ADU programs in Phoenix and Tucson.
New ADU Rules in Phoenix
The Phoenix City Council approved new rules in September 2023 allowing the construction of accessory dwelling units (ADUs) on all single-family residential properties, as long as the yard size and other parcel characteristics allow it. This exciting development opens up new possibilities for property owners to increase their living space and property value. However, it is important to consult with the Planning and Development Department before making any decisions to ensure compliance with the regulations.
How Do I Know if My Lot is Suitable for an ADU?
Each zoning district in Phoenix has “lot coverage” guidelines that determine how much of your property can be covered by buildings or structures. The new guest house rules expand the allowable coverage by 10 percent, with some exceptions in specific zoning districts. If you’re unsure about your property’s eligibility, our experts can help you assess your options and guide you through the process.
City of Tucson: Unlocking ADU Potential
Tucson began allowing casitas, or Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs), in residential zones on January 7, 2022. This significant change has made it possible for many Tucson homeowners to consider building ADUs. Zoning restrictions used to be a major obstacle, but the City of Tucson has made strategic changes, including two new building code clarifications, to make the process as accessible and affordable as possible in order to promote ADU construction. Affordable Housing Solutions is dedicated to ensuring that you can reap the benefits of these exciting and beneficial developments in Tucson. We provide ADU solutions that comply with city regulations, making it a hassle-free process to achieve your ADU dreams.
