About Us

We were founded to make building an ADU (Accessory Dwelling Unit) simple and affordable for everyone.

Our story

Through unprecedented deregulation of the CA housing market, the possibility of building an ADU has become a reality for almost all California homeowners. However, the daunting task of taking on an ADU construction project was often a non-starter. Homeowners had to navigate the complicated world of general contractors, building and planning department permits, utilities, design work, etc. This is where Habitat comes in.

Our mission

As a comprehensive design-build ADU firm, it’s our mission to make the process simple and cost-effective, while providing the highest level of customer service possible. This will never change, even as we continue to iterate on our product and processes.

Our value

As we look towards new markets, our core value proposition will remain centered on our customers. Building an ADU should be an affordable, enjoyable experience. Habitat is here to help people discover the hidden gem in their own back yard.
