    How Accessory Dwelling Units can help your family and create more housing in your community!


    An ADU can benefit you by being a self-contained apartment for a family member, a caregiver, or to use as a rental unit for additional in-come. Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) – also known as granny flats, inlaw suites, and accessory apartments – are allowed in all New Hamp-shire communities by state statute. Accessory to the primary house on the property, whether attached to it (above a garage, on the side of the house, in an attic or basement) or detached (a converted garage or barn or new construction).

    Peterson's book, Backdoor Revolution-The Definitive Guide to ADU Development, is the authoritative book about accessory dwelling units to date. It's written for planners, ADU advocates, and homeown-ers who aspire to build ADUs.

    Peterson will cover the process of designing and building an ADU, and considerations including costs, financing, permitting, design, rental models, and more. He'll also delve into why expanding the inventory of ADUs in New Hampshire will help homeowners, would-be renters, downsizers, and the availability of affordable housing for our state's workforce and communities. 

    Copies of Peterson's book will be available for $10 for those registering for and attending this FREE event: www.PS21.org
