HONOLULU (AP) - One of Hawaii's biggest housing developers has supplied extra units on single-family lots to help alleviate a shortage of living space.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported Monday that D.R. Horton has supplied accessory dwelling units constructed under a Honolulu program established in 2015.

The program allows a second dwelling on lots between 3,500 square feet (325 square meters) and 20,000 square feet (1,858 square meters) zoned for single-family use.

The Texas-based company has built and sold 35 of the units attached to new homes at its master-planned community in Ewa near Honolulu, which is 13% of the 262 of the units built on Oahu.

An official says Horton's participation in the program has been welcomed, in part because production has not been as high as the city envisioned.
