Wondering "How much does an ADU cost?"

Here's how to save time, energy, and money figuring out the financials for your ADU project 


Can you really afford to build an ADU?

After all, costs of building an ADU are all over the map. 

In Portland, Oregon, the city where the most ADUs have been built to date, ADU costs have ranged from $20K to over $400K.

Most homeowners are not design and construction savvy. And so, it's easy to become overwhelmed by the hundreds of decisions involved in an ADU project.

For most, this means hiring high-cost professionals to assist you in planning and budgeting for your ADU.

Fortunately, you don't have to sink tons of time, energy, and money developing detailed cost analysis and budget for your ADU only to find out in the end that you can't even afford to build it. 

There's an easier (and far less expensive) way to quickly discover if your ADU dreams are financially feasible or not. 


The AD4U Project Planning & Budgeting Packet

Founder of AD4U, Stewart Straus, has completed dozens of projects in his 45+ years as an architect. 

Using his signature grounded, practical, straight-talking approach, Stewart created this Project Planning and Budgeting Packet to simplify and streamline ADU planning and budgeting so that you can get the answers you need to determine ADU financial feasibility.

Here's a sampling of what's covered in this packet ...

  • How to begin planning your ADU by outlining your most important goals so that you stay focused, on track, and save time as you create your budget.
  •  How to identify local zoning code regulations that may affect your ADU plans and costs so that you know exactly what you can and can’t build in your city.
  • How to create a “big picture” cost estimate so that you can determine feasibility of the type of ADU you wish to build as quickly and easily as possible.
  • How to determine appropriate rent you can charge for your ADU and what features need to be included to attract tenants at this rate.
  • How to create a budget based on potential rental income so that you have a valuable measure of whether your projected project costs are appropriate or not.
  • How to identify factors unique to your project that may increase costs so that you can create a more realistic budget and cost projection.
  • How to explore financing options to get the funding you need to execute your project successfully.
  • How to use the information you’ve gathered to establish an optimum project budget range and contingency fund so that you can move forward to the next ADU project stage of detailed project design and construction.


Personally, I wouldn't hire an architect until I've determined whether or not I can even afford to build an ADU in the first place.

I mean it ...
