Property Requirements

To build an ADU in Alameda, your property must meet certain requirements. The lot must be zoned for residential use and have an existing single-family residence. The ADU can be placed in various locations, such as the backyard, attached to the main house, or converted from an existing structure like a garage. Setbacks, height limits, and lot coverage restrictions also apply. Our experts at DevArt8 Construction can assess your property and determine the best options for your ADU.
