Thinking About an Accessory Dwelling Unit for Your Next Remodeling Project? Read These 4 FAQs, Koolaupoko, Hawaii

Since 2015, Oahu has allowed residents to add on secondary units to their properties in an effort to ease the local housing shortage. Called Accessory Dwelling Units, or ADUs, these structures can create housing for family members or an exciting rental investment opportunity. If you’re considering adding an ADU to your property, consult with an experienced contractor from R. Clary Builders for additional guidance.

Here are four frequently asked questions about ADUs from the construction and renovation experts at R. Clary Builders:

  • What Is An ADU? Accessory Dwelling Units are secondary units built on your property, either attached or detached from the primary residence. These dwellings feature their own facilities, including a kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom.
  • What Are The Types Of ADUs? There are several ways you can go about building an ADU. You can add to or alter a pre-existing structure, or you can build a completely new dwelling. You can seek ADU recognition for an existing structure that was built without a proper permit, or you can perform a renovation on an existing structure to bring it up to ADU code.
  • What Are The Requirements? The ADU ordinance contains several requirements to be aware of before you begin building or remodeling a unit on your property. These basic factors include zoning, lot size, building size, occupancy, and parking stipulations. If you have any questions about the requirements, ask a helpful contractor at R. Clary Builders.
  • Do You Need A Permit? Yes, you will need to obtain a permit, either a hard copy or an electronic version. When you choose R. Clary Builders as your remodeling contractor, you can leave the permit details to them.
