ADU Equity_01 Final

Two homeowners discuss the ADU building process: "I was so frustrated with the process... I wanted a one-stop shop but I became my own project manager." "I got a package from the state that is supposed to facilitate building an ADU. But when I went to the city, I encountered a whole bunch of challenges..." "I needed to come up with $45,000 just for permits, and I couldn't get that so I am stuck at the beginning."
