ADU Plans

Before beginning with any ADU project, large or small, having a plan in place improves the process and ensures a better outcome.

ADU Architects

Anchored Tiny Homes

Home improvement and construction projects, whether they involve a complete home renovation or the construction of a small accessory dwelling unit (ADU), demand a well-thought-out plan and detailed blueprints. These foundational documents serve as the guiding blueprint for your project, ensuring that every aspect aligns with your vision and meets the necessary safety and regulatory standards. Without a clear plan, even a seemingly small home improvement task can quickly become overwhelming and lead to costly errors. Investing in well-crafted blueprints is a fundamental step in guaranteeing the success and efficiency of your project.

When it comes to ADUs, specifically, working with experienced professionals is paramount. Anchored Tiny Homes partners with ADU architects that bring a wealth of expertise and knowledge to the table, making them an indispensable resource in transforming your dream dwelling into reality. They possess the skill to design ADU plans that are tailored to your unique needs and preferences, taking into account local building codes and regulations. These experts ensure that your ADU project not only aligns with your aesthetic and functional desires but also seamlessly integrates with your existing property.

Why ADU Architects Need Blueprints and Plans
Read More
Read Less

It may seem possible to simply construct an ADU, especially because these are smaller spaces, without using blueprints. In fact, this would likely create complications and errors that might result in more time spent and higher costs.

With a plan, any project is more likely to get done right the first time. Even with a smaller structure, a blueprint is useful in a unique way. With a small space every inch matters, and designing each detail to flow correctly makes the smaller space functional.

Additional reasons blueprints are important:

Everyone on the Same Page

An ADU unit requires all the same details as a traditional dwelling. Electrical, water, gas lines, layout and design elements. Having clear written plans means that the electrician and plumber and designer are able to work together … Perhaps the most important part is that our plans will allow us to be on the same page as our customer. Ensuring that what we plan to build is what you have in mind. We will work closely with you to go over your ADU plan.

Exact Measurements for Pricing, Details, and Permits

Exact measurements are required if you wish to know the pricing of your project in advance. These measurements also make it possible to get all the details just right. Also, if your project is going to require permits those too will need a final and detailed plan to be approved.

  • Alyssa Scavetta
    We got a small 10x10 ADU built in our backyard to use as an office space for myself. When we first talked to Duran, we also wanted something that could double as a guest room. Duran worked with the best in the business to take this tiny ADU to the next level. We're talking vaulted ceilings, a doggie door in the side of the house, recessed lightning, nice modern wood floors, and plenty of light. Plus, I got to have stucco walls to match the exact paint color of our house, and roof shingles to match as well! Duran and Anchored Tiny Homes left no stone unturned. And they did it all in 2 months. I am so so pleased with the results of this project. I would highly recommend Anchored Tiny Homes to anyone in Central Texas looking for an affordable, custom, high quality ADU built on their land!
  • Sunny Lombardi
    I am kicking off an ADU build with ATH any day now…well down the path and will add to this initial review later. I did want to share what my experience has been to date with ATH. I was super fortunate to meet Lawrence Kao of ATH first. As a sales professional myself I can’t help but not only think about the product but also the salesperson style. Lawrence has been an easily accessible and responsive pro. He has been able to answer any question I have had with ease and has instilled the kind of trust that causes one to feel great to work with the business and person representing it. Can’t wait for next steps and am stoked the project kicked off with Mr. Kao!
