Collaboration: Abodu X KINTO
Bay area-based company Abodu works with world-renowned architects to create their ADUs (accessory dwelling unit) to create beautiful spaces with enough custom design elements to make them special to each owner. We partnered with Abodu to create custom TRAVEL tumblers and also interviewed Abodu’s co-founder Eric to learn more about the ethos of Abodu and their goals for addressing the housing crisis. Read on to learn more about Abodu and their inspiration for partnering with KINTO.
Hey Eric, can you introduce yourself?
“Well, I’m Eric. I live in San Francisco and I’m a Co-founder of Abodu. When I’m not working or pretending to train for the Tour de France, you can typically find me sipping a beer post-hike.”
What is Abodu?
“We build beautiful, well-designed backyard homes for homeowners and families who need more living space. From purchase to permanently-installed-in-your-backyard, the bespoke process of adding an Abodu Studio, Abodu One or Abodu Two to your property takes around 4 months—and includes permitting, off-site construction, delivery, installation, and unparalleled customer satisfaction.”
Can you tell us why an Abodu is a place that you would want to permanently live in?
“Love a great leading question…because it’s designed to have everything you need for full-time living. It has an ideal layout, beautiful cathedral ceilings, lots of natural light with windows optimized for privacy, and high-quality materials of natural and industrial origin.
We like to joke- nearly everyone who walks through an Abodu in our Bay Area showroom says something to the effect of “Wow, I didn’t expect it to feel this nice!”
We’ve teamed up with award-winning architects & designers who are great at what they do, and we think it shows.”

With a state law easing restrictions on accessory dwelling units, granny flats are proliferating in L.A. and other cities — and pre-fab options may make these tiny houses even more common.
