Why an Anchored ADU?

Anchored Tiny Homes Grand Rapids 2 bedroom ADU model.
Anchored ADUs are Stick Built So Access is Almost Never an Issue

Our ADUs are stick-built on-site so that you can almost always build one if you have the space!

Video Testimonials

Jackie Danielsson

Jackie Danielsson built a beautiful detached 792 square foot ADU on her property for her parent to have their own spacious home while still being able to stay nearby and LOVED the overall experience.

Nichole Wolfe

Due to limited space, Nichole had us build an attached ADU onto her home for her dad to have space of his own on their property. It turned out to be the perfect solution to keep everyone close by and still have enough room for everyone to thrive.

FAQs

According to state laws any property that is zoned as single or multi-family can build an ADU regardless of location, HOAs, or any other local regulations as long as you have the space.

The most common placement is in the backyard, but you can also have them in the side yard or even the front of your house given there is enough room when taking setbacks, local regulations, and any unique easements on your property into account.

Because our ADUs are stick built on site, we have a ton of options to customize our base models as well as create a custom build ADU from scratch.

From floor plans, room sizes, kitchen fixtures, and cosmetic changes, we can help you create the exact space you’ve always imagined.

Some of the key elements that you can customize include:

  • External color
  • External finish materials (including options to exactly match your primary home)
  • Internal finishes from floors to tile to countertops to appliances and more!
  • Internal wall colors
  • Shower features (metal shower, porcelain shower, glass door, and more)
  • Kitchen features (sink style, countertop style, cabinets color, and more)

You can customize everything on this list, and so much more, for your new ADU.

Have any questions about customizations? Inquire today and speak with an expert to get all of your questions answered.

Our Anchored ADUs come fully finished with a full kitchen, bathroom, living space, and bedrooms if you are wanting to bedrooms in your unit.

Some of the more specific features include:

  • LP siding (board & batten/LAP)
  • Lifetime Dimensional Composition Shingles
  • Milgard white windows French doors (6′)
  • Luxury Vinyl flooring (Urban Floor)
  • Shaker cabinets
  • Butcher block countertops
  • Subway tile backsplash

  • Can lights
  • Decor plugs and switches
  • 125 amp panel
  • Water heater / Rinnai V65E (Gas)
  • GREE Mini Split unit
  • And there are dozens of upgrades available

There are a ton of financing options available for ADUs and our in-house financing department can help you find the best loans for your desired terms and current qualifications.

The most common type of financing for an ADU project right now is either a cash-out refinance or a Home Equity Line Of Credit (HELOC) but there are a number of other options available as well including renovation and personal loans.

Feel free to reach out to us today to learn more about financing and get connected with our financing team!

Yes, we do offer shell or unfinished versions of our ADUs.

With our shell model ADUs, we still handle the whole process for you and finish everything except for the interior of the ADU.

For the interior of a shell model ADU, we would complete rough plumbing, rough electrical, and framing leaving the rest for you to complete on your own or using your own subcontractors.

The cost of a shell model ADU is approximately 60% of the cost of one of our finished units!

What Our Customers Say About Us

  • Dina Mahshi
    I recently had the pleasure of working with Anchored Tiny Homes in Sacramento to build a one-bedroom unit for my mother, and I must say the experience was exceptional. One of the standout aspects of my interaction with Anchored was the transparency and clarity regarding project costs. The agreed-upon project cost and payment schedule were adhered to without any deviation. It was a relief to have no hidden fees or unexpected additional costs, which can often be a concern in construction projects. The coordination with the city for permits and inspections was another commendable aspect. Anchored Tiny Homes demonstrated efficiency in navigating the bureaucratic process, ensuring that permits were obtained, and inspections were carried out promptly. This streamlined approach made the overall process simple and hassle-free. I cannot speak highly enough about our project manager, Martin. His professionalism, kindness, and honesty made the entire experience enjoyable. What stood out the most was Martin's proactive approach to problem-solving. Rather than just presenting issues, he always came prepared with viable solutions, making decision-making easy and efficient. Although the project timeline extended slightly beyond the initially promised timeframe due to a delay in building materials, the crew's efficiency was evident once they broke ground. Despite this minor delay, we successfully moved my mother into her new home on Mother's Day, creating a memorable and special moment for our family. Moreover, the after-sales service from Anchored Tiny Homes has been outstanding. Any concerns or issues with the unit are promptly addressed without pushback, demonstrating their commitment to customer satisfaction. Anchored Tiny Homes commitment to transparency, efficient project management, and excellent customer service, especially through Martin, made the process smooth and resulted in a beautiful and beloved home for my mother. I highly recommend Anchored Tiny Homes for anyone considering a tiny home construction project. Call Martin today for a free estimate and tell him I sent you to get $2500 off your project price.
  • Chantall Walton
    "Working with Roman Sandoval was an absolute game-changer for our construction project. He stepped in at a critical moment, taking over from previous contractors who had failed to deliver. His approach was nothing short of exceptional. Roman not only completed the tasks at hand but went above and beyond to ensure customer satisfaction. His dedication to doing the job right was evident in every aspect of his work. Without his timely intervention, our dream home would still be an incomplete project. We are immensely grateful for Roman's extraordinary efforts and unwavering support. He is, without doubt, the best contractor we have ever worked with. Thank you, Roman Sandoval! Here’s 5 stars that are well deserved! 🙏🏼
  • Mary Ann Ballesteros
    I had an idea of what I wanted for my 3 bedroom ADU to replace my mini basketball court in my backyard ... Colton and Anchored Tiny Homes took my vision: ATH, the designers, Roman Sandoval and APC made it all happen... they made my vision come to life! Along the way in the building of my ADU, there were road bumps, permit delays, the stormy weather, construction delays to name a few.... but this is where I would be so proud to say ... "T'was late but worth the wait!!!"!!! My ADU looks absolutely beautiful and amazing! The quality of work, the workmanship is truly exceptional! Shout out to Dee (ATH miracle staff), Roman (ATH project manager) and Armando (Absolute Precision) for making this project smooth sailing.... I was completely amazed by the way ATH handled my issues with transparency and a positive approach towards making things right. . . And yes, ATH made it happen! Thank you from the bottom of my heart ❤️!!!
  • Peter Rizzo
    Great website
  • M W
    Anchored Tiny Homes just completed a wonderful backyard home office for us. We love our office and had a great experience with Anchored and their subs. They came in with a very fair price and worked with us throughout the process to make sure we got what we wanted and needed out of the design and final product. We have already recommended them to multiple friends and neighbors. Thank you Jordan especially!
  • lisa renken
    I had Anchored Tiny Homes build an ADU in my backyard in Lincoln Ca for my folks. Colton was always professional, positive and worked with integrity. Anchored worked through a few issues with promptness and understanding! My folks, and I, couldn't be happier, it's perfect!
  • Rochelle Garcia
    My Project Manager Jordan and Contractor Raymond were really good. They identified potential issues that I hadn’t thought through. They even sought out the best sub contractors who were friendly efficient and reliable. I was really pleased about the final finished product . The house is beautiful Raymond and Jordan were god sent .
  • Josh Varcoe
    They are an absolutely fantastic company, that truly specializes in their work and takes amazing care of their customers.
  • Maria Lourdes
    Darrell, a new addition to Anchored Tiny Homes Team, is the Construction Project Manager on my ADU project in El Cerrito (Spanish for the "the hill"). He is the point of contact - and I am so pleased! I have generally 24/7 access - he picks up the phone if he is available and when I leave him a message, he responds within 24 hours. From the initial site walk-thru to the many conversations back and forth to my recent nightmare with the architectural design, I give 5 stars to Darrell and Ali (Romgerd Construction) for professional customer service. Both are upfront in telling me what is wrong and advising me as to how to make it right. What I am going through right now with the flawed architectural design is a nightmare, I am comforted with knowing that Darrell and Ali is on my side. Absolutely yes- DARRELL works for his client and that's ME!
  • Suresh Daniel
    ATH is a great and professional company , you can trust and build a new home or ADU. Nick Milsap is a wonderful salesperson and and he keeps his word and follows through on every commitment he makes. Their project manager, Patrick Sayed is a capable person to get the project done with right resources and highest quality. You can’t go wrong with ATH
  • B
    Couldn’t have better things to say about Anchored tiny homes and their team. They were always on time, knowledgeable and delivered our dream ADU beyond our expectations! They made the process easy and affordable. Their quality and customization are really incredible and we couldn’t say better things about the Anchored Team. We would recommend them to any and everyone!
  • Larry Lamota
    About finished up with my ADU Anchored is building for my grandmother, their designer made everything ADA accessible which I didn't even know would be possible in a tiny home, but it turned out perfect! This ADU and anchored is a perfect solution if you need elderly ADA-accessible housing on your property.
  • ileana pavel
    Build an ADU with Anchored Tiny Homes in Sacramento it came out amazing. Having a turn-key contractor it's really the best way to go especially if you are doing this for an investment property. Nice just to pay someone to build it and collect your rent money. Very happy.
  • Kevin Craig
    Amazing team and an amazing product! If you are looking for custom ADUs, this is the one.
  • Phil Guertin
    Colton Paulhus and his team are amazing builders!
  • George Warren
    Anchored built two ADUs behind my existing duplex in Midtown Sacramento and we just had our final inspection this week. Although there were some challenges along the way and the project took much longer than expected, I couldn't be happier with the end result. Note to future customers: The state of California and many local governments (Sacramento included) talk a good game about streamlining the process of building an ADU– but that message hasn't necessarily reached the people in the building department. Our project was delayed for TWO MONTHS because of an error by a city plan checker. They admitted they screwed up, but still charged me $640 to amend the permit– including a couple hundred dollars for an "expedited review." Don't blame your builder!
  • Bonita Amaro
    So far, so good. From all my research, this company is reputable. I stopped by their office on Hazel Ave without an appointment & did not see or feel like anything was "off." I was comfortable in placing my initial deposit. I received a very good recommendation from one of their previous customers that I happened to meet in a social situation. The consultation service has been excellent . Everything has been explained, so I understand the process . The company is the general contractor from start to turn key ready. I'm getting ready to start the ball rolling!
  • Peach Tsige
    Anchored Tiny Homes just completed my ADU and I couldn’t be more happier with the results. We did have some delays along the way due to many factors but all and all they remained professional and responsive. Colton remained accessible and accommodating to my requests. Even with all the inflation, they kept my price the same as what was quoted over two years ago.
  • Timothy Hooper
    Awesome pla e to look for investment homes.
  • Debbie Joe
    Anchored Tiny Homes (ATH) did a fantastic job on my 400 square feet tiny home. They finished in record time, which was 3 months ahead of schedule. I appreciate the quality of the workmanship and the communications via text and phone. I have already started my next project with ATH!
