We share a clear Vision and Mission.

Vision Statement:

Thousands of inspiring backyard homes shared within California communities.

The state of California is in the midst of a housing shortage that affects thousands, if not millions of Californians every day.

At Acton ADU, we’re active proponents of housing strategies from affordable housing projects to the advancements of accessory dwelling unit regulations that make it easier for homeowners to build ADUs.

As designers, navigators, and builders of ADUs, we have dedicated ourselves to utilizing our 30 years of residential design and construction experience to pursue ADUs as a means for homeowners to create value for their families and properties throughout the Silicon Valley.  

Mission Statement:

We empower discerning California homeowners to build personalized ADUs

At Acton ADU, we are not just designers and navigators, we’re builders - but of more than just homes. 

We build inspiration and tackle the inevitable challenges of every project with dedication, professionalism, and expertise - so that every ADU we build accomplishes a specific goal, and is customized with charm to provide value for every homeowner that partners with us.
