AuthorsLive: ADUs: The Perfect Housing Solution by Sheri Koones

AuthorsLive welcomes author Sheri Koones to Greenwich Library's Marx Family Black Box Theater. She will be discussing her new book, ADUs: The Perfect Housing Solution, in conversation with Town of Greenwich First Selectman Fred Camillo and Greenwich Real Estate Agent Mark Pruner

An Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) is a smaller housing unit built on the same lot as a primary dwelling (also known as Additional or Auxiliary Dwelling Units)— think granny flat, in-law unit, laneway house). From coast to coast across the US and Canada, ADUs: The Perfect Housing Solution gives you an inside look at 25 charming, ultra-functional, extra living spaces which will inspire you to build one of your own! 

Each house includes information about the type of construction, the major green features, and the myriad of uses—for family members, guest spaces, rental income, or more. Each featured ADU shows how to make the most of the small space for comfortable living without the burden of caring for a big house. 

Books will be available for purchase and signing through Diane's Books.
