Sharon Stone: Accessory Dwelling Unit

Accessory dwelling units are more popular than ever, and for good reason! Having a spare dwelling unit on your property opens up the possibilities for what you can do with your space. Maybe you want an additional garage, a separate abode to serve as a private office/recreational space, or perhaps you just want a wholly independent residence for guests, family, or renters. Whatever your need, Sharon Stone Design can help you construct an accessory dwelling unit that fits all of your needs for appearance, function, and space use.


An accessory dwelling unit, or ADU, is a smaller, independent housing unit located on the same property as a larger, primary residential structure such as a house. They come in a variety of forms:

  • A separate shed or housing unit on your property
  • An apartment or shed that is attached to the side of your home
  • An independent grouping of rooms on its own floor above or you home, or in the basement.

The sole requirement for an Silicon Valley ADU is that the unit is independent. In other words, if it is rented out to a tenant, the individual must have the necessary amenities to live independently. This means the space must be separated, either by walls or physical distance, from the larger house to the extent that someone can come and go from the unit without first going through the rest of the house.

Although this depends on residential building codes for your area, there must also be a certain amount of space. If you are considering renting the ADU out, there will be other requirements as well, such as hookups for gas, water, and electricity.

Key Tip: Look up your area’s specific laws for ADUs if you are considering renting your space.

If you are simply looking for some extra space for yourself, it’s still essential to ensure that you have enough room and enough independence from the larger building. When you hire Sharon Stone, we know you’re not looking for a simple room addition: you want something appealing, spacious, and self-contained. That’s where we come in.
