Learn the 411 on ADUs at upcoming workshop

By Hawaii Renovation Posted in: RemodelRenovating

At Homeworks Construction’s next free workshop on designing, building and financing an Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU), a variety of plans will be made available to attendees for review.

ADU specialist Kim Green will host the workshop at the Homeworks Construction showroom and cover all the basics of designing, building and financing a structure that meets the requirements in terms of allowable size and position on an exiting property. Loan officer Mark James of Bank of Hawaii will provide details on the various ways of financing an ADU.

“We’ve had an amazing response from homeowners who want to add an ADU structure to their property,” said Homeworks Construction president Jim Byxbee. “It demonstrates a real need in the community for these types of units which serve both to house family members on the property, but in separate quarters, and provide an additional source of income with a legal rental. An ADU unit, whether detached or connected to the main house, can also make it possible for families with limited income to stay together and even help alleviate the problem of homelessness.

“Of course, certain guidelines need to be followed, which we explain in the free workshops we’ve been offering since the ADU program was first announced. We already have a number of ADU units of varying styles and sizes underway in neighborhoods throughout Oahu.”

Byxbee noted that after their presentations, the speakers are available for free oneon-one consultations with workshop attendees, who also can make an appointment to meet later at the Homeworks Construction conference room or at their property.
