ADU: A viable solution for housing challenges?

The Arlington County Board is considering zoning changes to accommodate “missing middle” housing units, such as duplexes, triplexes, and small multi-family buildings, in areas designated for single-family homes.

While some argue that this addresses exclusionary zoning and promotes affordable housing, others question the benefits to communities and housing diversity.

Unlike “missing middle” housing units, accessory dwelling units (ADUs) have the potential to help address housing problems while also taking into account the concerns of both supporters and opponents of “missing middle” housing. ADUs offer homeowners flexibility in using them for personal or rental purposes, increasing housing supply, and preserving neighborhood character.

As constructive dialogue among stakeholders is essential for incorporating ADUs into local policies, Aroom steps in to provide a seamless solution for modern backyard studios and ADUs. Our designs, crafted by world-class architects, offer unique spatial experiences that can quickly and efficiently add space to your home.

Aroom streamlines the entire process, from design and permitting to manufacturing and collaborating with local contractors.

You can choose from our range of models, such as the 216 sq. ft. Model 21 for remote work or play, or the 560 sq. ft. Model 56 ADU, perfect for housing family members or generating rental income. We currently serve clients in D.C., Virginia, and Maryland, and we will continue to support local communities as they adapt to the evolving housing landscape.

Here is some helpful information about ADUs for your local region.

We have a showroom can in Fairfax, Virginia and you can book a tour on a need basis. If you are interested in scheduling a virtual consultation before visiting, please click here to schedule a session.
