Peter Thorn Builders is Chapel Hill’s premier home addition contractor. Chapel Hill zoning rules changed a few years ago making it easier to add an Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) aka “Granny Flat” or “In Law Suite”. If you have the available building area, it is now much easier to build an attached or detached garage with an ADU upstairs for residential or home office use.  If you rent the ADU space, quite often the rent revenues cover the ADU’s debt service – and your property becomes more valuable. Improving your home with an Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) is a great way to build your real estate nest egg, or you can just enhance your lifestyle with the extra space

There is strong demand in Chapel Hill for graduate and professional student housing, due to the steady stream of renters relocating here to further their education. 

The Chapel Hill and Carrboro area has many existing homes in great locations, with highly desirable school districts and attractive neighborhoods.   Rental units, work from home space and extended family living are high on the list of reasons our customers seek to improve their property with an ADU. Often older lots have more available buildable area than newer construction. 

We are pleased to explore ADU options with you. Contact Us Today - 919-619-6544
