What is an ADU?
An Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) is a secondary housing unit that is either attached to or located on the same property as a primary residence. These units, also known as granny flats, in-law suites, or backyard cottages, provide additional living space while maintaining the character of the existing neighborhood.
ADU Design Competition
The ADUs for all ages design competition invites design ideas for Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) buildings. Our focus: ADUs that cater to multi-generational living arrangements and feature sustainable solutions. A jury selected first and second place, the public choice winner will be determined during the 2023 Tiny House Expo at the Fresno Home and Garden Show.
