ADU - Accessory Dwelling Unit


The City of Culver City is pleased to announce Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) prototype plans for those in Culver City considering a new ADU on their property.  The plans are available in PDF format in three different plans (studio, 1 bedroom, 2 bedroom) and three different styles, Post-War Bungalow, Spanish Revival, and Modern.

The plans are intended to save homeowners the expense of having custom plans created and are intended for new construction only.  The applicant will be responsible for providing a site plan for the specific property on which the ADU will be located and filling out all applicable portions of the prototype plans including project specific information on the coversheet. 

The applicant will have the ability to download the plans using the links below.  Four sets of 24”x36” plans will still need to be submitted to the Building Safety Division for Plan Check Review.  No construction is permitted without an approved Building Permit.  All applicable plan check and development impact fees still apply.
