The popularity of accessory dwelling units, or ADUs, had been booming in California; and for good reason. These small homes are an affordable option for homeowners who need more living space, and they can be used to generate rental income. With the rising cost of housing in the state, there’s been a big movement to build more low-cost ADUs. One of the industry pioneers in constructing these affordable ADUs without compromising build quality is ADU.Works. With the use of structural insulated panels, helical pile foundations, and engineered plan sets, the Bay Area builder is able to provide homeowners with ADU products that can be built in almost half the time and cost of a traditional ADU Builder.

“We wanted to create a better experience for people looking to build ADU’s after building one ourselves. A quick look around, however, revealed that ADUs remained prohibitively expensive or otherwise unappealing. They took an awful lot of time to construct and both the customer service and the process were poor. We knew things could be so much better – that’s why we created ADU.Works” 

Conrad Kimball, Chief Executive Officer.

To reassure homeowners about the quality of their materials and construction processes, ADU.Works decided to invest in having a showroom facility where homeowners can physically see and interact with a physically built ADU Model of their Mavericks M392 including a display exhibit of the solar panels used, countertop/vinyl floor options, sidings/roof materials, and more. 

Located in Hayward, California, City Councilmember Aisha Wahab was present to cut the ribbon alongside homeowners and other jurisdiction officials. With the aim to give the best ADU buying experience, the startup showcased the ability to place an order an ADU online called the “ADU Configurator”, allowing homeowners to purchase and choose their options seamlessly through the ADU.Works website. This process gives customers an easier and more transparent purchase process.

“Our main goal is to be transparent with our customers as much as possible. With our showroom opening, this enables us to showcase and discuss our models, our materials, and our processes in a more effective and three-dimensional way where homeowners can both see and touch everything that goes into one of our low-cost, no-compromise accessory dwelling units.”Ace Velarde, Chief Product Officer.

ADU.Works partnered up with various food trucks, mobile bar stations, merchandisers, and a world-renowned DJ and music producer, Griffter to create a community-feel and atmosphere. In addition, the company also conducted raffle promotions to all attendees wherein they were able to give two (2) mobile speakers, one (1) 55″ Smart TV. 

Moving forward, customers can now schedule a showroom tour with ADU.Works by booking through their website at or by reaching out to their Head of Sales – Kalhiel Dillard via phone number +1 (650) 227 4810 or email:

The team looks forward to hosting another open-house event in the following months with plans to expand across California in 2023.
