An Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) is a smaller scale living unit located on the same property as an existing single family home. These modest dwellings actually play a big role in providing affordable housing, extra income, and space savings in suburban areas. Since June 2023, ADUs are now permitted in Vanderburgh County, allowing residents the option to build a freestanding living unit for aging parents, young adults, or for rental income.
