Hi there, can you add two ADU's on the same property? The subject property is zoned R1 and sits on a 4,700 sq. ft. lot.
Under most circumstances, you can only build one ADU on a property. There are some overlay zones that have exceptions to this rule, but it is not the norm. If you check with the City's planning office, they can tell you if you can have more than one ADU on your property.
Hey @Shawn Morgan ! Hope you are doing well man. Thanks for the note on the topic above. We are moving into a place with a nice, finished separate entrance basement and a large two -car garage. Just gotta figure how to finance the garage ADU conversion
@Dakota Mivshek I have not seen where you are able to do that, but I have seen people rent out a basement Air B and B amenities in basement and have an adu as well but no legal 2 units.
All is well here. Congrats on the move! Hopefully I'll see you at the next RareBird meeting and we can catch up more. Good luck with the ADU project!
Every area is different. Check with planning.
However, the intent of ADUs in most zones is to allow for home owners to build a small outbuilding for family/ friends/ extra space/ ect... In my area, you save on SDCs because you can use the water/ sewer off your primary residence instead of running new lines. Because of the intent of this zoning, it seems like most areas wouldn't allow you to have more than one. But you don't know if you don't ask!!
Tigard, Oregon just adopted new development code that allows 2 (1 attached and 1 detached) ADUs.
If you are looking at a way to finance your ADU, check out Dweller. They are a company that specializes in the development of ADU's in Portland.
@Dakota Mivshek I just asked someone in BDS this question a few weeks ago. Currently in Multco the limit is one. There might be changes to this rule though within the year with the proposed overlay zone that has been sent to the City council for a vote. The woman I spoke to at the city seemed confident that the limit would be increased to at least 2 per lot, within certain parameters.
