Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) Building Plans

The city has developed pre-approved Accessory Dwelling Unit building plans for property owners/developers. Applicants may submit for a building permit with the information below

  • Three complete and "to scale" sets of building plans provided from the City of Grants Pass website printed at 24x36 inches.
  • Three copies of a site plan “to scale”.
  • Completed and signed Residential Development and Building Permit Application which includes plan submittal requirements.
  • If the property is located within a hazard area such as flood or steep slope, contact your design professional for additional requirements. Development in Special Flood Hazard Areas requires additional City permits for Floodplain Development. 
  • Accessory Dwelling Units must meet applicable zoning district setbacks for front, rear and side yards.

Accessory Dwelling Units cannot exceed either 75% of the size of the main house, or 1,000 square feet, whichever is less. The building plans below are for an ADU of 728 square feet.
