STRAIGHTFORWARD PRICING

Starting at $228,800.

Our pricing is upfront from day one, there are no hidden costs or stress. And with the Abodu Pricing Guarantee, if the cost of your project changes, we guarantee that we don’t profit from the change. We also don’t mark up permitting fees.

This budget includes the following:

  • Home visit to ensure that your backyard and an Abodu is a great fit
  • Pre-approved plans for the fastest possible permit approvals (we pull the permits for you)
  • Completed Abodu (including finishes & appliances)
  • Standard site work (including foundation, trenching, utility tie-in)
  • Delivery of the Abodu from our factory to your site
  • Installation of the Abodu unit on-site, including craning (up to 100 ft.)
WHAT IS THE TIMELINE AND PAYMENT SCHEDULE FOR AN ADU?

We have one of the shortest ADU project timelines available. Your entire Abodu Built-To-Order project will be completed in as little as 6 months,  and the payment schedule is divided into five payments throughout this timeline. Abodu Quickship units can be delivered in as little as 30 days.

FOR TRANSPARENCY'S SAKE
A few things that increase cost:
Deep Backyard

Our base price includes up to 50 ft of plumbing and 100 ft of craning. Our sales team will assess your backyard ahead of time to see how long your backyard is and provide upfront plumbing and craning costs.

$125 per additional foot of plumbing over 50 ft.
$250 per additional craning foot over 100 ft.
Electrical Panel Upgrade

If your home electrical panel is under 200 amps or has less than 85 amps of additional capacity, we’ll likely need to upgrade. Don’t worry, we’ll take care of it for you.

$7,500
Hazardous Soil Conditions

If you live in an area where your land requires a specially engineered foundation, we’ll see if we can design one for your Abodu.

We’ll provide a quote.
Landscape Removal or Repair

If you need us to tear down that old shed, remove that dead tree, or provide significant landscape repair after Abodu installation- we’ve got you covered.

We’ll bring in a local landscape partner to provide a quote.

Utility updates
Additional utility trenching beyond 50’
