Do I need to provide off-street parking for an AADU or DADU?
No, but you cannot remove any existing required off-street parking spaces (unless you replace them on your lot).
Do I need to live on the property?
The City of Seattle has removed the owner-occupancy requirement. As such, many homeowners are building AADU’s and DADU’s for rental income opportunities.
Should I dig out my basement for an AADU?
It depends on several factors, as the cost of digging out a basement could cost more than building a second-floor addition. We will need to come out to your home, walk your property, and learn more about your project before we can provide our expert opinion.
Can I build two AADU’s on my property?
In SF5000, SF7200, and SF9600 zones, you may have either two AADUs, or one AADU and one DADU. See additional criteria.
Is building an AADU worth it?
Generally speaking, yes, it is well worth it to invest in building an AADU or DADU on your Seattle property. If you’d like to learn more, give us a call, and we’ll come out to your home and help you determine if building an AADU or DADU makes good sense.
