Constrained by zoning code, this project was only able to add 119 square feet of new footprint. So the homeowners gave a third of their existing family room to create a new Accessory Dwelling Unit for grandma to occupy. Connected by an interior door to the main house, but with its own exterior door for independent entry, the ADU allows the family to easily get together or remain separate as needed. This project in the schematic design phase.
