Join Mountain View Vice Mayor Lenny Siegel and ADU Builder, Inc CEO Tony Chan for a free panel discussion to find out how people in Mountain View and the surrounding area transform portions of their yards into valuable housing units, and help relieve the housing shortage.
Backyard rental units are officially known as Accessory Dwelling Units or “ADUs. Some Bay Area homeowners build ADUs to house parents or children, some rent out the ADU for income, some downsize to an ADU and rent out their original house. ADUs increase affordable housing inventory, enable homeowners to maximize their use of space, and generate value. Local governments in the Bay Area now encourage ADU construction to increase density without significantly altering a neighborhood’s character.
The panel will address practical issues including the recent liberalization of Mountain View and surrounding area’s building codes, “Tny House” Design Concepts, Prefab versus traditional construction, as well as ADU costs, incentives, and ways to finance construction.
The panel will be moderated by TechCode Director Shawn Flynn who will emcee a Q&A session to follow the panel discussion.
