Granny flat workshop Saturday in Campbell

Have you been thinking about building a granny flat but don’t know where to start or how to move forward with planning, permits, financing, and construction? A workshop in Campbell this weekend hopes to answer those questions and more.

Granny flats, also known as Accessory Dwelling Units or ADUs, have become a well-known way to increase the local housing stock, provide a place for family or friends to live, or build up rental income and home equity.

A number of recently enacted state laws have focused on increasing the number of ADUs and have reduced the burden on homeowners hoping to build them. Five recent laws make is easier to convert garages into small units and to build new ones above a garage, attached to your home, or separately in your backyards.

This Saturday, November 2, a couple local companies are teaming up to share information and resources on the ADU process. Acton ADU, which bills itself as a company “that specializes in designing, navigating, and building personalized ADUs” and is based in Campbell, is joining real estate company Keller Williams and US Bank for the workshop.

The session will cover financing, design, construction, and warranties, and will run from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Keller Williams’ office in Campbell, 2110 South Bascom Ave., will host the workshop, which is free to attend but has limited space available.
