What are Shell ADUs?

A Shell Accessory Dwelling Unit, or shell ADU, is a unique concept that brings the best of both worlds — ready-to-finish construction with the flexibility to personalize. These structures are designed and built to a "shell" stage, providing a solid foundation, walls, roof, windows and essential utilities. However, the interior is left unfinished, allowing you to customize the space according to your needs and style preferences.

At Anchored Tiny Homes, our expertise and commitment to excellence make us the go-to shell ADU contractors. Let’s delve into the world of shell ADUs, explore their benefits, and highlight why Anchored Tiny Homes is the perfect partner for your building project.

Shell ADUs come with a host of advantages making them an enticing choice for homeowners seeking additional living space:

  • Cost-effective solution. By providing a pre-built structure, shell ADUs save you time and money. You avoid the extensive labor costs associated with traditional construction.
  • Personalization. Customize the interior of your shell ADU to match your lifestyle and preferences. The possibilities are endless, whether it's a guest suite, home office, or rental unit.
  • Faster completion. Since the exterior construction is taken care of, shell ADUs can be finished faster compared to building from scratch.
  • Energy efficiency. Shell ADUs can be designed with energy-efficient features, such as insulation and high-quality windows, ensuring a comfortable living space year-round.
Who Are Shell ADUs For?

Shell ADUs are a versatile option suitable for a wide range of individuals and scenarios:

  • Homeowners. If you want to add space to your property for guests, family members, or even extra rental income, a shell ADU is an excellent choice.
  • Remote workers. With the rise of remote work, a shell ADU can become a tranquil home office away from the main house, fostering productivity and focus.
  • Investors. Entrepreneurs seeking to capitalize on the growing demand for rental properties can create a customizable living space that appeals to tenants.
  • Multigenerational living. Shell ADUs provide the perfect solution for elderly family members who want to maintain their independence while being close to loved ones.

  • 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.

    "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 ❤️!!!

    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!
