Aforma is the simplest, fastest way to build a modern ADU.

We offer exceptional ready-to-build ADUs ranging in appearance and layout. Detatched ADUs typically resemble small houses separated from a larger main house on a single-family lot. They’re compact and flexible, often used to generate rental income, as a home office or extra space for visiting friends or family.

Ready-to-build means our designs are pre-vetted for faster city building permits, and ready to discuss with your lender. Contact us for local ADU lender recommendations.

 
 
 

The Shed ADU

The Shed is a bright living space with very high ceilings and a lively outward personality. It can be rotated to face the sun, turned inward to create a private oasis, or angled toward a house for maximum entertainment. LED light channels radiate off of the plywood accent walls and ceiling and it may be equipped with a minimalist heating system concealed in the walls. This ADU can be screened, like many of our other designs in order to generate extra privacy on an active site.

The Pitch ADU

The Pitch is our tallest ADU, with plywood ceilings reaching out into the sky. Whether the ADU is opened up in the summer, or letting in soft cozy light during the shorter days of the year, its skylights and long spans of glass are perfect for coaxing the outdoors inside. An oversized pocket door connects the 1-bedroom configuration to the living space. Pitch looks especially fantastic when paired with an architectural metal roof.

The Screen ADU

Screen has an enclosed deck with a smooth cedar ceiling on one face, and on another it is sleekly screened, so depending on how the building is sited, this ADU can be quite a party or a completely private oasis. In addition to LED lighting, minimalist heating and architectural concrete options, this design also features a cut-away containing a garden, connecting a greenery to the bedroom, bathroom, and living areas simultaneously.
