What are the Features of an Accessory Dwelling Unit?

The concept of an accessory dwelling unit (or ADU) has been around for quite some time, yet remains a mystery to homeowners. Simply put, an ADU is an additional structure on your property or attached that can be lived in. Over time, the design and technology have drastically changed for the better.
Today, ADUs look modern and can even be done with 3D printing. They boost the value of your home and could even be built as an investment on an already existing property. Let’s look deeper into ADUs and what kind of features they have. 

Interior
Even though ADUs are smaller than the average house, they don’t lack features or cutting-edge technology. The interior features ADUs are equipped with, are designer-selected. ADUs have a bunch of features made for the kitchen and bathroom. There are custom-made cabinets with bold design and plumbing fixtures such as faucets/sinks. In the bathroom, is an elegant mirrored medicine cabinet over vanity. 
The countertops are quartz for a sleek, modern-day design along with ceramic tile on the floors. There is also room for appliances. ADUs have a range/oven, refrigerator, and microwave with a vent fan. Not to mention, ADUs come with a washer and dryer which means it’s fully habitable and independent from your main home. 
We made a guide to interior design here loaded with tips on fully customizing the inside of your ADU. There is plenty of space to get creative with plants and two-in-one furniture that adds style to your property and boosts the value of it too. Additionally, don’t be afraid to experiment with dark colors to add richness to the inside.

Exterior
The exterior design of Modern Buildings is made by award-winning architects. Based out of the Bay Area, we know how high labor costs could be and how inefficient home construction could be if done the “old way.” That’s why the solution for constructing ADU’s, is centralized around using synthetic stone and 3D printing technology.
