In response to the pressing shortage of long-term rental housing, the Summit County government initiated a program offering incentives for the construction of accessory dwelling units by waiving building permit fees. This initiative inspired an empty-nest couple to invest in their property, not only to generate additional income through long-term rentals but also to secure future flexibility, enabling them to maintain a Summit County residence while spending part of the year elsewhere.

This newly constructed custom one-bedroom apartment is situated above a heated two-car garage. The open-concept living area on the second floor maximizes the breathtaking westward views of Buffalo Mountain through expansive windows. Carefully integrated clerestory windows have been incorporated into the design to flood the space with natural light while preserving the privacy of the main house.

The kitchen boasts knotty alder custom cabinets, quartz countertops, a wine fridge, and ample storage space. A private southwest-facing deck offers the perfect size for a hot tub or a comfortable seating area. The construction adheres to all Summit County Sustainable Building codes, including the installation of solar panels, high-efficiency in-floor heating, and pre-wiring for a garage charging station. As an added feature, the bathroom includes double sinks and a luxurious steam shower. This design can be readily applied to other properties, and the entire construction process was completed in just nine months. Check out this amazing a ADU, a perfect chance to ask questions about this exciting county program.
