ADU Program

The Kerman City Council has approved a Pre-Approved Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) Standard Plans Program for City residents to utilize. The program streamlines permit processing and reduce design costs. Residents may refer to the step-by-step Homeowner's Guide (PDF) program details. Residents wishing to utilize the Pre-approved ADU Standard Plans will need to submit an ADU Building Permit Application (PDF), and any other applicable documentation. Residents may choose from three permit-ready, pre-approved detached ADU plan sets including studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom ADUs that range in size from 386 to 749 square feet. These plans are available in three different architectural styles: 

  • Ranch/Early Century
  • Mediterranean/Mission
  • Cottage
