The client’s mother is using a wheelchair, so one bedroom, one bathroom and common living areas have to be wheelchair accessible.

In the primary bedroom the bed is positioned in front on of the TV with windows on both sides and above the bed for good ventilation.
There is a dedicated laundry space with a linen closet opposite.
The best ADU Floor Plan meets all family needs and reflects the shape of your main house and property line. Your new ADU should look like it has always been there. It should also maximize the space – take as much of your backyard as you are willing to dedicate to the new living area.
