Alameda Tiny Homes is about one thing- building you a new home, in your backyard! We Design Permit and Build ADUs in the City of Alameda.

We started Alameda Tiny Homes to take the guesswork out of the backyard cottage Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) building process. Our pre-approved ADU layouts, custom ADU designs and comprehensive ADU permitting, and ADU construction services mean you can get that extra space you need quickly, without any guesswork on pricing or process. We even offer expedited permitting for ADUs in the City of Alameda.

Our Process

These are not prefabricated ADU boxes built in a far away factory. We design and build your ADU from the ground up. This gives you an heirloom quality home that will last for generations. We pride ourselves on ADUs that incorporate the architectural elements and customizations that reflect the unique homes in Alameda.

We use locally sourced materials, employ local staff and of course our work is inspected by your local building department. This ensures you get a high quality ADU that benefits both you and your community.

Each of Our ADU Designs meets or exceeds all California and national building codes and local City of Alameda ADU requirements. Nobody builds more high quality ADUs in Alameda than Alameda Tiny Homes. We build onsite and typically complete your cottage in under 90 days.
