ADU - splitting existing SFR
There was a sun room that was added to the house and I’m planning to have that finished ( insulated and dry walled and vent added) and use that as great room and add a wall to enclose the kitchen to access the back unit which will have have access to 1 bedroom.
I will add kitchenette to great room of front unit and there will be no common areas. i plan to live in back unit and rent out front. I know I will have to split the utilities, and will add solar to offset electric costs.
Will there be an issue with permitting for ADU? I have read that an ADU need separate water heater? I'm not sure how I could split any of the utilities. Any suggestions or tips ?
