What Is an ADU?

ADU stands for Accessory Dwelling Unit. These living spaces can be added on to existing homes to serve a wide range of purposes.

The last five years have undeniably changed the way many families utilize their homes. From transitioning to homeschooling or remote work to welcoming aging family members or adult children into a family home, new uses for many home spaces have cropped up. While some homes were already well-equipped for these shifts, others quickly began to feel crammed. That’s where attached ADUs come in.

Remote work has remained common in many industries, calling in a necessity for home offices for many homeowners. In addition, as family members age, many people wish to house their parents while still maintaining a sense of privacy.

Even before the pandemic shifted the way people live in their homes, ADUs were popular among business-minded homeowners. Because they can operate separately from the main home, ADUs create an excellent opportunity for making passive income by renting out a tiny home on a monthly basis or as a vacation property. This wide variety of uses and the instant boost in home value have made adding an ADU a top priority for many homeowners.

Before seeking out a qualified accessory dwelling unit contractor it’s important to first determine which type of ADU is best for your property. One option is to add an attached ADU.

Attached ADUs are built directly onto the existing home, while still remaining completely separate and private. This setup is ideal for those who do not have an abundance of extra yard space or who want to keep a family member close by while still providing a private residence.

Benefits and Uses of Attached ADUs

Adding an attached ADU to your property offers an exciting list of benefits. A few possible perks to choosing an attached ADU include:

  • Saving on construction costs by using part of the existing structure
  • Housing family members in a separate but nearby residence
  • Creating a rental income opportunity
  • Customizing a separate home office space
  • Boosting the market value of your home

Regardless of your goals and the benefits that mean the most to you, it’s important to partner with a qualified accessory dwelling unit contractor.

  • Mike Meduri
    Steve and his team took the time to assist with my inquiry of building a potential 2B/1B ADU with a 2 car garage. Steve went above and beyond to call the planning and zoning department to see if this was possible, provided me 3D modeling plot plans and was quick to respond to all my questions. Ultimately, the town would not approve the proposed project. Despite the unfortunate outcome, Steve and his team left me impressed with their professionalism and I would recommend their services.Thank you.

  • dball913
    The project initially commenced with standard expectations, yet encountered numerous challenges and setbacks along the way. Despite an anticipated completion timeframe of 6-8 months, the endeavor extended nearly two years. Communication emerged as a prominent issue, with prolonged periods of inactivity lasting up to three weeks at a time. Additionally, the project underwent managerial transitions on seven separate occasions, further complicating matters. However, the introduction of Martin Schafer marked a pivotal turning point. Martin’s proactive approach and exceptional dedication revitalized project dynamics. His unwavering commitment and efforts transcended expectations, significantly improving project outcomes. The resultant work achieved commendable standards, garnering praise from observers for its exceptional quality. Acknowledging the transitional challenges faced by the company, it is imperative to recognize Martin's instrumental role in salvaging the project. Without his exemplary leadership, the project's overall rating would have undoubtedly suffered.
  • nona dadash
    It was about a year ago that we signed the contract with ATH and our ADU is in its final stages. Along the way in the building of my ADU, there have been bumps in the road; rainy weather, construction delays, lack of communication, designer and project manager changes, but let's be real I don't think you can have a construction project that you don't run into challenges, delays, and problems. ATH Is no exception to this fact unless you have expert and caring people on your team. I was lucky enough to have some of these people on my team; Rick Manzanares as my ADU specialist and Bob Brecht as my project manager. Rick has been my go-to person since day one; he is transparent, caring, knowledgeable, honest, and helpful. Bob is my 2nd project manager who came to save my project when I was not happy with the progress of my project; he did his best to keep things moving quickly, communicated almost daily, and managed the contractor and workers as best he could.; I'm so grateful for his good attitude, responsibility, and work ethics. My ADU looks beautiful so far and I can't wait to see the finished work. I will take a pic and post it here later.
  • Lila Wochna
    It's clear that Jessica and her team take immense pride in their work. Highly recommend for any construction project.
  • Tom Earley
    Such a great experience! Many thanks to Jess, Mark and the entire Achor team for a smooth project!
  • Amy Padilla
    I had the pleasure of meeting with Anchored Tiny Homes to scope out a potential ADU project. Matthew and Nathan were very knowledgeable and kind. They explained things in a way I could understand and so could my mom. They listened to our needs and provided multiple options. They were not pushy and were obviously focused on our needs and making us happy. This is obviously something they love doing and it shows in their work. If you have the interest in having an ADU built or aren't sure if it's for you I strongly recommend Anchored Tiny Homes. They are a no pressure, kind, knowledgeable and passionate team.
  • Vicky Davies
    ATH Portland showed dedication, knowledge, and thoroughness with our project. Their commitment to assessing the client's needs is commendable.
  • Jensen Yancey
    Zach and the rest of the team were phenomenal to work with. The prices are extremely reasonable, and they were only ever helpful and informative, they never pressed with a hard sell. Would highly recommend this team if you're interested in an ADU.
  • Rose Disney
    I signed with ATH three years ago when they were a new and rapidly growing business, so there've been some...growing pains. That said, although ATH isn't the first contractor we've run into that couldn't deliver on 100% of their promises, they are the ONLY contractor I've ever worked with that has shown a consistent and long-term willingness to try. In my opinion, my project manager Martin is the shining star of ATH. He clearly puts all of himself into his job. He's super responsive and helpful and goes above and beyond to make sure everything meets the expectations set back when my contract was first signed with the company. I'm truly grateful to have him as my point of contact.
  • Joe Manzo
    The process of getting the unit built took longer than expected but it was exceptionally handled by our Project Manager Martin Schafer. Throughout the project Martin worked extremely hard to make sure things went as smooth as possible. He made several attempts and had success in getting the project completed. Should you decide to have a unit built, ask for Martin to be your Project Manager. You will be happy you did!
