Permit-Ready ADUs

With the rising cost of housing and the desire to increase housing options, many cities are revising zoning and building codes and allowing Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs). The City of Renton is one of them.

This shift to ADUs seems novel and interesting. However, what sort of impact ADUS will have on existing infrastructure (roads, sewers, etc.). In older cities such as Seattle, will adding a slew of new ADUs overstress it? I suppose time will tell.

In the meantime, here is some great info! Click on this link to go straight to the  City of Renton’s website to learn more about ADUs in Renton, take a peek at permit-ready ADUs, and get inspired!
