Next-level living:

ADU building redefined for a better tomorrow.

Whether you’re looking for cash-flowing rental space, or age-in-place/additional living space for friends and family, an Accessory Dwelling Unit, commonly referred to as an ADU or Accessory Structure, will increase the value of your property while also generating supplemental income or providing housing for loved ones.

But, while building an ADU is a guaranteed way to maximize your property ROI, it can be a daunting undertaking that presents a diverse number of challenges, including obtaining a permit, design constraints, unforeseeable costs, and more.

That’s where we come in.

A One-Stop-Shop for Your ADU

We manage every detail of the ADU construction process, including project analysis, design, engineering, cost evaluation, permit walkthrough, and the build — from concept, all the way to key handover.

But we don’t just manage every detail — we also collaborate with you on all the fun stuff to ensure a personalized experience! As for all the not-so-fun-stuff…

We roll up our sleeves and get the job done, while providing 100% transparency every step of the way so you’re never in the dark about costs or timeline.

The result is a unique ADU that aligns with your desires and financial plan, and is built for lasting impact.

If you’re overwhelmed by the complexities of ADU construction, have a vision for what you want but aren’t sure if it’s possible, or are just exploring the idea of growing your property value with an ADU, you’re in the right place.

Types of ADUs We Build:

Dedicated to Quality Craftsmanship & Sustainability

Garage Conversion


Committed to
Energy-Efficiency & Smaller Carbon Footprint

At an average of 800 sq feet, ADUs are incredibly energy-efficient by nature (just another reason we love building them). That said, there’s always more you can do to make your ADU more environmentally-friendly and ensure it’s built with optimal sustainability in mind — and it all starts with eco-conscious design.

That’s why when you work with us, we’ll happily advise you on the best energy-efficient features and green building materials from the getgo — so your ADU will have the lowest possible electric bill and put less drain on the Earth’s resources. Name a better win-win — we’ll wait.

Find The Right ADU For Your Needs:

Passive Income Producing ADU

Our client Chris partnered with us for an airy and serene two-bedroom backyard ADU in Southeast Portland, and now has 800 sq feet of luxurious additional living space that also serves as a reliable income stream.

Age-In-Place ADU

Our clients Dee and her family moved to McMinnville and bought a lovely home with the intention of building out a garage ADU for Dee to age-in-place. We constructed a light-filled one-bedroom and fully-equipped ADU for her. Now, the whole family is living together on one property, fulfilling their long-time dream of creating multigenerational housing to build stronger bonds and save on housing expenses!

Additional Housing | ADU For Friends & Family

Our client Courtney partnered with us to build a charming ADU on her parents’ property so she can raise her child with assistance from her family! Thanks to the solar panels as the finishing touch, this highly energy-efficient ADU is now an incredibly cost-effective living space for her and her kiddo, while giving them both all the added benefits of being close to Mom & Dad, or Grandma & Grandpa.

“I adore this team of contractors. I’ve done two projects with them — most recently an outdoor remodel.

You can really trust that they have fair prices, are choosing quality materials and they have an attention to detail to get the job done right. Any changes or adjustments they walk through with you and are clear on cost. They respect your opinion and have creative, affordable solutions to problems.

They know and work with any subcontractors to make sure the work is done right and if there is a problem it’s fixed immediately. They treat their workers right and I trust them and would choose them for all of my house projects.”
