Alameda Tiny Homes is a full service design-build firm specializing in tiny homes and backyard cottages, also known as accessory dwelling units (ADU).

Our focus means we’ve taken the guess work out of the backyard home building process. Our backyard cottages are permitted and built by our dedicated staff, on time and on budget.

We believe that our ADU qualified tiny homes and backyard cottages can help communities respond to the problems of housing shortage and affordability, while providing a great deal of value and enjoyment.

A backyard tiny home provides the extra space you need for friends and visitors, a potential source of cash flow without taking on a roommate, or a humane and affordable solution for an aging parent (granny-flat) or family member to live independently with support nearby.

Tiny homes, built in our backyards keep our neighborhoods feeling like neighborhoods while adding the much needed housing capacity that our land constrained region demands.

Because of recent regulatory changes, ADUs are now easier to permit in the San Francisco Bay Area than ever and, our pre-designed layouts and  construction services mean there is no guesswork in permitting, construction costs, or project timelines.

Alameda Tiny Homes can build you a beautiful, affordable, and energy efficient ADU  living space on the property you already own.

Our Designs

Our pre-designed tiny homes and cottage meet all national building codes and local accessory dwelling unit (ADU) requirements.

We have done all the homework to streamline the permitting and construction of your ADU. This removes the guesswork that is often typical to the design-build process.

Since we focus on pre-design, you will get a high quality tiny home, that’s built quickly and efficiently in your backyard.

Because of our attention to detail, your tiny home can be permitted in 6-8 weeks. Construction is usually completed in under 90 days after we start!

Each design is tailored to match the architectural style of your home and can be customized to meet your needs.
