Accessible Dwelling Units

An accessory dwelling unit (ADU) is a smaller, independent residential dwelling unit located on the same lot as a stand-alone (i.e., detached) single-family home. Join us for a discussion with WheelPad an award-winning manufacturer of accessory dwelling units who will be featured in the INNOVATIVE HOUSING SHOWCASE on the National Mall on June 9-11!
