Pre-Approved Plans for New Detached ADU

The City of Desert Hot Springs in collaboration with YNG Architects is offering property owners a selection of eight (8) Pre-approved ADU Plans to promote construction of new detached ADUs within City limits. The collection of plans that were produced include four (4) architectural styles: Contemporary, Pueblo, Mediterranean, and Spanish, and eight (8) different unit types. Plans available for download below.

The plans feature configurable choices regarding external style and materials but the ADU should be compatible with the design of the main dwelling unit.

Pre-approved plans reduce preconstruction fees and expedite the permitting process. While the house plans are pre-approved, other documents such as a site plan, are required from the property owner at the time of submittal. These plans are only to be used for NEW Detached ADUs on properties within the City of Desert Hot Springs limits. The pre-approved ADU plans are not compatible for properties proposing an ADU in existing space or for attached accessory dwelling units.
