Events about ADUs

ADU California is a movement these days. We have started our event series April 9, 2020. Why? Because spending more time at home during Shelter in Place made us re-evaluate the living space requirements. Someone wanted a quiet space. Someone wanted additional space. In the Bay Area there is no faster way to add space than building an ADU. As they say the opinion of the guest speakers might be different from the opinion of HomeWiP, please use your judgement and do your research. Some companies have since stopped building ADUs, please select vendors with caution. We are on standby in case you need help.
