ADU Accelerator

ADUs are taking off, and for good reason!

Due to recent changes in State Legislation, Californians can look to Accessory Dwelling Units (“ADUs”) as a way to create lasting investments for their families while building attractive, affordable, and sustainable housing for their community.

Join us on December 12 to learn about all the benefits of ADUs, along with the practical questions you should be asking as you get started on your project. This workshop will cover everything from financing and smart design to permitting, construction, and getting the most out of your investment.

Hosted by USGBC Redwood Empire and California Community Lender.
