Q: Does the AD4U Prefab Guide address additions and remodels?

A: This guide focuses on free-standing ADUs only. In most cases, free-standing ADUs are the most economical solution because they best allow for the use of prefabricated modular construction that minimizes site labor cost.

Building a free-standing ADU also avoids issues of remodels and additions such as:

  • Upgrading structural systems that do not comply with current code
  • Upgrading building envelope (walls, roofs, windows, etc.) to current energy code
  • Demolition and reconstruction to accommodate requirements for two dwellings in a single building (fire separation, separate heating/cooling, sound isolation, etc.)
  • Uncertainty of existing construction until demolition is done

Building a free-standing ADU also...

  • Preserves the value of the existing house and minimizes inconvenience and disturbance during construction.
  • Easily keeps construction and operating costs separate from those of the main house.
  • Makes the ADU more attractive to potential renters by providing a greater feeling of independence from the main house.

Q: How long do I have to complete this training?

A: There is no time limit on completing the AD4U Prefab Guide Training. Even though the course materials are released on a weekly basis, you can take as much as you need to complete the training. The ambitious homeowner can complete the modules in 4 weeks, while others choose to spend more time with this material.
