Can Accessory Dwelling Units Help Meet Our Region’s Housing Needs?
ADU expert Kol Peterson presented the opportunities and challenges of Accessory Dwelling Units on Thursday, October 4, 2018 at the Kilton Library in West Lebanon
Video of the event is available here, at the Facebook page of Bob Farnham.
Kol Peterson’s slides are available here.
An accessory dwelling unit is a simple and old idea: having a second small dwelling right on the same grounds as (or attached to) your regular single-family house. An ADU can provide an affordable place for you or others to live, can be designed for your needs, and can provide rental income.
You can see many examples and learn more about ADUs at www.buildinganadu.com, including building costs, an explanation of construction contracts, sample site plans and floor plans, and a look at appraisal considerations.
Kol Peterson’s book is available at Backdoor Revolution: The Definitive Guide to ADU Development.
This event was generously sponsored by AARP and New Hampshire Housing, who has published a helpful Homeowner’s Guide to Accessory Dwelling Units to help you think through questions about ADU construction and ownership.
