SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4 News) – A model guest home or “ADU” debuted Monday at City Creek Center.
Accessory living units provide an opportunity for homeowners to increase their living space or earn income by listing the unit as a rental.
The “Model One” by Modal was constructed with a modular design which allows manufacturers to build the homes faster and more environmentally friendly.
This model starts at $120,000.
“It’s a high-end refab that uses that modular style construction which means you don’t have construction that happens in your backyard. You have all the benefits of high-end construction but none of the downsides of typical on site.”
Last fall, Salt Lake City updated its zoning codes, paving the way for more types of these units to be made and placed across neighborhoods like Rose Park, Sugar House, the East Bench, and Liberty Wells.
