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.

  • 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.

    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!
  • Melissa Wilkins
    Duran is attentive and has excellent customer service.
  • Ava R
    Very organized information and easy to navigate website. Catalog easily downloaded. Only cons is pricing.
  • Eric Harvey
    We worked with ATH to build a custom ADU in our backyard, and we are very happy with the way it turned out. The project had some unexpected turns and bumps in the road, like building projects always do, and ATH made navigating them much easier and faster. Our project manager, Pamela, went above and beyond to make sure things were done right and the changes we requested in the course of construction were implemented.
  • Ted Scranton
    Martin and Jordan were a pleasure to work with on our ADU project over the last 2 years. Although there were several hiccups along the way we are happy with how the final product turned out.
  • Wendy “Wendizzle”
    We did a phone call and Rick was very knowledgeable and had screen sharing so I could see my options.
  • Blanca Gavina
    I’ve been working with Anchored Tiny home for almost 2 years. Roman Sandoval has been wonderful! His communication is amazing and has offered me exceptional customer service. He has answered all of my questions promptly and he is very thorough. I absolutely love my new ADU!
