Many of the ADUs that have been built have been created to provide a home for their parents or their adult children. This is a great way to live and create housing for your family but also still have the privacy of your own. A survey shows that most people who own a large amount of space don’t need that much space. Most use it for extra storage – things they don’t really need to own. Many families are downsizing because they realize the maintenance is not worth the hassle.
