In a recent article, the Coeur d’Alene Press reported that the City of Rathdrum, Idaho is updating its codes to allow for the construction of accessory dwelling units (ADUs) in more residential areas. The move comes as the city is seeing an increase in homeowners with college-aged or elderly family members staying or moving back home, leading to a demand for more affordable housing options.
ADUs in Residential Areas
According to Josa Snow, the city is responding to this demand by updating. Its construction codes to allow for ADUs in more residential areas. ADUs, also known as granny flats or in-law units, offer additional living space on a property. That can be rented out to help offset the cost of a mortgage or even turn a profit for the homeowner.
