What is ADU?
ADU can be called Accessory Dwelling Unit, Second Unit, Granny Flat, Backyard Home or Auxiliary Unit, Live-in garage, Guest Suit, Guest Apartment, etc.
Types of ADUs
ADU can be attached – attached to part of the primary residence or as a garage conversion. If you are looking to convert your garage into either a basement apartment or an over-the-garage apartment, Enovation could help turn your ideas into reality at the most affordable costs.
