Building an ADU that’s not an ADU

2 months ago

My “kids” have a home and detached shop building on several rural acres -but still in a municipality which doesn’t allow ADUs (or DADUs).
Pool houses are allowed.
Man caves/she-sheds are allowed.
But no living quarters.
Yet that’s what I’d like -an addition onto their detached shop, that would allow us a place to stay when we visit.
I’m thinking we’d have to forego a washer/dryer, and probably range, too, to get permitted. But I’d love to hear what some of y’all have done, please.
