KEEP IN TOUCH WITH FAMILY
ADU in Piedmont, CA
Your family may become closer if you all live in the same house. But it can be challenging to maintain that closeness when your family expands, and everyone begins to require their own space. Your family might find the ideal answer in an ADU (accessory dwelling unit). Piedmont is in the vanguard of ADU development in California, one of the states that are leading the way.
If your family is like many others, you may experience financial strain as it expands. An ADU can offer much-needed extra living space for older children who are still living at home, elderly parents who require care, or other relatives who want to live close by. By allowing each person their own space, you may contribute to the peace and harmony of your home.
