Those who want to get some extra living space in their possession have several variants of what to do with this desire. The most obvious option is to buy some land in another part of the town or even state and create a main house right there. However, another variant encompasses building a custom tiny home in the backyard as a cute addition to the main house.

Taking a ride around the area, you may have noticed proud owners of these tiny houses who repurpose them according to their needs. For some of them, it is a source of extra income; for others — an opportunity to reconcile with their aging parents. Even though every homeowner can create a tiny house on their lot, it is always better to confide the construction to the professionals who have worked in the business for many years.

One example of a team of professionals is ADU Builders California company. By working with them, you get access to top-notch services, employees with years of experience and passion, quality consultations, and the final result – a tiny home that will be far higher than your expectations.

Why build a tiny home?

First and foremost, a tiny home is an amazing opportunity to get some extra space for your needs. But are there any other benefits to it that mesmerize landlords to hire contractors?

The most prominent advantages of having a tiny home built are the following:

Tiny homes Elements

It is possible to fit tiny houses into any budget you have, but at any rate, these constructions will possess features that distinguish these tiny homes from any other residential unit. Many customers also like builders to add features they want to see in their custom tiny homes. There is not much you need to customize the tiny house – only your imagination and understanding of the processes. But what are the most popular customizations of a new house that is soon to appear on the lot?


Architecture may be a difficult subject, but nobody can ban clients from adding changes to the overall design of a tiny house and creating a totally custom tiny home. In the process, you can change the color of interior finishes, for example, or change the windows to let more natural light in. If it was your dream to create a luxury bedroom, you can substitute the bed if needed. Every small detail is in your hands.

Useful features

We agree that a tiny house should look at the future, and to do so, cutting-edge features are essential. You can add solar panels for off-grid living, attach wheels to start a journey at any moment to explore any national park in America, or use furniture and electronics that would be controlled from your mobile phone. Interested in such changes? Research even more features on the site of ADU Builders California company.

Floor plan

All companies provide tiny houses with a certain number of rooms and storage rooms available. This you can also make custom. In case you don’t need certain rooms, get rid of them. You can have fun and build a tiny home without any walls inside (for a cheaper price) or add extra walls to create more rooms inside your tiny house. Answer yourself how you would like to see the unit, and the ideas surely will fill your mind.


ADU Builders California company duties

To have a tiny house built is not a piece of cake; it is a complex process where a variety of professionals from different spheres take part. The craftsmanship of every builder, architect, or lawyer contributes to the final result. However, not every client understands what their tasks are. Let’s shed some light on the process of creating a tiny house.

To make a tiny home a reality, these tasks are crucial:

  1. Before creating a tiny house, tiny home builders have to figure out whether it is even possible to build anything there. This is the task of lawyers, who collect info on building requirements, gather permits, and research local legislation. Owners often set expectations too high in terms of time needed, but in reality, it may take up to several weeks to get everything for your tiny home.
  2. Next, architects have to work on the exact project of a tiny home. You can check the approximate result if you find models of the completed tiny homes on the site. Also, here, they figure out the price, extra costs, financing options, custom elements, dedicated storage room, and the rest of the info concerning the process.
  3. And now the construction can start. To get quality residential construction, there must be no rush. Builders use all their craftsmanship to build the tiny home in the best possible quality, with attention to every detail to make your dreams come true.

After the tiny home is built, the customers can enjoy this quality construction by themselves. Yes, it is a sort of journey, and every builder who participated in the process is proud of the tiny home they have built. ADU Builders California company is ready to provide you with a tiny home for any budget and for any request.

How to use a Tiny Home

Tiny home builders make these units to give owners more freedom in the first place. And every client can invent their own way of using them. The most popular way is to break out from the city and have some rest in another part of the country without leaving the comfort of your residence. It is a dream of many to have a luxury resort wherever you go, and with tiny homes, it is exceptionally easy.

Another option is to use it as a warehouse to have your stuff there. Fill it with items you may need in the future and take them when the time comes. It is also easy to transform tiny homes into places for your hobbies, like a music studio or a loft.

We believe that your family will also be grateful if you use the unit as a place to accommodate your relatives.

Many citizens build tiny homes so they can keep an eye on their aging parents. This increases their quality of life, and financing the retirement home will not be necessary.

Frequently Asked Questions — FAQ

What rooms does a tiny home consist of?

When contractors start to build a tiny house, the basic models regularly offer a fixed number of rooms like a bathroom, a bedroom, and a living room. Normally, these are enough for a basic family to live in tiny homes. However, some tiny house builders offer custom units that will include any rooms you wish. In these tiny houses, you can get luxury elements like your own pool or a room for a home office.

How to find a trustworthy contractor?

For a regular family, it may be hard to pick the right company in order not to waste a fortune on the cost of the unit. To find a good team, your family can use different techniques like word of mouth, the comparison of the models that are already built, checking every tiny detail like permissions to work, or, in the end, comparing the cost for a unit that the team sets. Find the models they have in line and make sure that you want the team to build something like this.

Can a tiny house be changed significantly?

The craftsmanship of the builders allows them to build any units for the required cost. If you need a loft or a deck, they can easily be added. In case you want to keep your unit mobile and park it anywhere you go, you can add luxury elements inside instead of creating extra floors. Luxury painting on the walls or gold handrails can also be added to the built unit.

Frequently Asked Questions — FAQ

What is an ADU?

ADU is an abbreviation for an accessory dwelling unit representing an additional secondary dwelling structure located close to the primary residence at the residential lot usually owned by one family. There are two main types of such structures, attached ADUs (resulting in the reconstruction of the existing inhouse space) and detached ADUs, which are the separate structures located on the premises territory. If you plan to build an ADU, you should find out the ADUs construction regulations established in your area. If the design of your attached or the detached ADUs conflicts with the design guidelines applicable for that of the primary residence, you won't be able to get the approval to perform the ADU building.

Can I cope with ADU construction myself?

ADU construction implies a lot of preparatory work. First of all, you should carefully learn the ADU building regulations established in your state. Secondly, the project design and all the cost calculations should be carried out. Thirdly, you must carry out the purchase of all the construction and decoration materials according to your cost estimate. Finally, the erection or reconstruction (in the case of the attached ADU) works should be performed. So, if you have enough expertise and experience in some areas of activity, you will be able to carry out the ADU all by yourself.

What is the price of ADU Construction?

The ADU construction costs are influenced by numerous factors, such as the type of your ADU (attached or detached), how many square feet your residential lot is, what size your potential ADU is planned to be, whether it will be a one-story or a two-story ADU, and many others. Generally, the ADU price tag can vary from 30 thousand to more than 300 thousand US dollars.

How long does it take to have the ADU built?

The average period of the new ADUs construction depends on whether you are going to erect a completely separated new accessory dwelling unit or reconstruct the already existing primary residential structure. As a rule, obtaining the building and reconstruction permits takes two weeks (the term may be increased in some cases), whereas the construction works themselves can take up to 4-To 6 months, depending on your ADU project
