The building industry refers to it as an accessory apartment or accessory dwelling unit (ADU) but homeowners commonly call it a granny flat. Perhaps, the name was coined because it was mainly to accommodate aging parents and grandparents.
You may see the following terms in listings: bonus unit, mother-in-law unit, carriage unit, casita, in-law apartment, granny pod or in Hawaii, they call it an ohana unit. They’re all different names but they all mean the same thing. They can be used for nannies or caregivers, for single members of the family, empty nesters, for grandparents in their 80s or 90s, for children moving back home, or in areas where they don’t ban renting of a granny flat, it can be a rental unit too. Carlsbad meets the zoning requirements for granny flats.
What does a granny flat look like?
A granny flat typically includes a sleeping area and a living area, a kitchen and its own separate entrance, but not all the time.
One of the designs is called a stealth in-law flat because it’s created from the existing rooms in the house. You can also convert your garage, reinvent your basement, or redo your attic or cottage. If you’re thinking of adding this homestead to your property, you don’t have to change the blueprint of your house, you just need to be inventive.
If this sounds like the perfect home for you, then Carlsbad is a good choice!
