Recently, cities have been reversing course on a long disallowed housing solution. Granny flats, in-law cottages, secondary suites, whatever you call them, they’re all ‘Accessory Dwelling Units,’ or ADU’s for short. In cities like Portland OR, Los Angeles, Chicago, NY, and even Ann Arbor MI, ADU’s are being allowed by changing zoning laws and ordinances. The hope is that these structures will offer a soft density strategy that can alleviate housing needs without drastically changing the character of our neighborhoods. This video looks closely at the design of an ADU, their history, and some of the questions surrounding this controversial building type.
