Building a DADU in Nashville


First of all, what is a DADU?

A DADU is a Detached Accessory Dwelling Unit.


A typical DADU in Nashville is a two-story building with a garage on the lower level and a second floor with livable space.


Can you build a DADU on your property?

Whether or not you can build a DADU on your property depends on the zoning restrictions.


Zoning restrictions also impact the size you are permitted to build and how you can use it once it is built.


Some neighborhoods allow you to use it as a rental, others do not.


4 things to do before starting a DADU

✔️ Determine what your zoning allows

✔️ Get a survey of your property

✔️ Determine your budget.

✔️ Hire an experienced architect and contractor


OUR DADU

My husband and I built one at our house last year. We added a rental unit to our primary residence plus we have a place to park our cars.  It was a Win Win 👍👍


Below are photos of our DADU which is currently rented to a long term tenant.
