ADU stands for “Accessory Dwelling Unit”. They are often referred to as in-law units, back houses, granny-flats, etc. ADU’s can be either attached or detached from the main house. An ADU always includes a kitchen, bathroom and living area.
As per SB 1069 and AB 2299, the max size of an ADU is 1,200 sq ft if detached, and 50% if attached to the existing home. The ADU must also comply with maximum lot coverage regulations. 45% is standard; however, most local codes allow up to 50%. If that’s still not enough, SKSI may apply for a variance on your behalf.

This bill would replace the term “second unit” with “accessory dwelling unit.”
The Planning and Zoning Law authorizes the legislative body of a city or county to regulate, among other things, the intensity of land use, and also authorizes a local agency to provide by ordinance for the creation of 2nd units in single-family and multifamily residential zones, as specified. Existing law authorizes the ordinance to designate areas within the jurisdiction of the local agency where 2nd units may be permitted, to impose specified standards on 2nd units, and to provide that 2nd units do not exceed allowable density and are a residential use, as specified.
