Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) are small, naturally affordable, and climate-friendly homes tucked discreetly within residential neighborhoods.

LISC is excited to help make (ADUs) more broadly available as a housing choice for San Antonians. This free online guide includes:

  • What are ADUs?
    • Types of ADUs
  • The Many Benefits of ADUs
  • The National Resurgence of ADUs
    • Re-legalizing ADUs
  • Financing an ADU
  • ADU Education
  • Can I build an ADU?
    • Improving the Code
    • City of San Antonio Code Table

They’re a great match for smaller households and can be created through basement or garage conversions, additions, or new construction of backyard tiny homes.

ADUs can be paired with affordable housing programs to serve low-income families, other vulnerable populations, and first-time homeowners.
