    Images of accessory dwelling units

    Can anyone help provide direction on where to find good images/photos of accessory dwelling units in a suburban setting?

    We have growing pressure to adopt design standards/regulations in support of accessory dwelling units. I am glad the market is finally going in that direction in my community. My administration department would like to see exaples of these in a suburban setting before they allow us to move forward on the project. Thoughts?

    I presume you already did a google image search, but if not here are two links:

    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    Both in Naperville, IL about 2 blocks from each other.

    You might have to check to see if these were ever replatted. By definition, accessory dwelling units need to be on the same parcel/lot as the primary dwelling unit.
