Adding an ADU — watch this first.

New to the world of backyard homes and don’t know where to start? Check out our new Abodu Ed video series that goes in-depth on all things ADU. Hear from members of the Abodu team on topics like getting permits, the ins and outs of installation, and what to expect throughout the entire process.

HCD vs HUD? We hate acronyms too, so we let Michael, the Sales Manager at Abodu, break it down for you.

Find out which one is best for you (and your property value) in our latest Abodu Ed video.

When it comes to ADUs, or accessory dwelling units, an HCD built unit is built in the same way your main home is built in California. It’s considered real property and appreciates in value over time.

A HUD built unit on the other hand is considered personal property like a car, and when it’s added to your property, it’s not going to give the same residual value as an HCD built unit will.

So where do Abodu ADUs fit into all this?

Abodu ADUs use the HCD standard for all of the units we build, which means adding an Abodu to your property will increase the value of your property over time.

We offer two models of ADUs at Abodu: fully custom, built to order and in-production units.

Currently it takes about 8 months from signature to key-in-hand for our built to order model. Our in-production model takes a little less time.

As soon as you sign a contract with Abodu, you have a dedicated project manager working with you from start to finish and a full permitting crew to pull all permits required for the job. Which means you know that you have a team working in the background on your behalf from start to finish.
