Custom ADU Design with SnapADU: Precision Meets Personalization

At SnapADU, our commitment is to simplify the accessory dwelling unit design-build process while ensuring homeowners get precisely what they envision. One of the primary challenges in ADU projects is bridging the gap between a homeowner’s vision and the final product. Traditional 2D blueprints, while informative, often fall short in conveying the depth and feel of the finished space.

To address this, we’ve integrated 3D renderings into our feasibility process. These aren’t just generic mock-ups; they’re detailed visualizations crafted directly from our actual plans for your project. This means that what you see during the design phase is a true representation of the final product. No surprises, no second-guessing. You’ll know exactly what you’re getting, down to the smallest detail.

Tailoring Your ADU to Your Needs

Every homeowner has unique needs and preferences. Whether it’s for rental purposes, accommodating family members, or simply enhancing property value, the design of the ADU plays a crucial role. After engaging with nearly 3,000 homeowners contemplating an ADU, we’ve gained insights into the most sought-after design features. For instance, dual or even triple suites are in demand for rental units, while ADUs intended for family might prioritize a spacious primary bedroom suite. You’ll see many of these considerations factored into our off-the-shelf ADU plans. But that’s just the beginning. You can  tailor any of those plans to suit, or we can work with a design concept you have in mind.

Dive Deep into Customization Options

With SnapADU, you have the freedom to tailor every aspect of your ADU:

  • Floor Plan Configurations: Decide on bedroom & living space layouts, kitchen designs, pantry configurations, laundry location & layout, entry styles (standard, covered entry, or covered patio), and various windows & doors including sliding glass doors, French doors, and skylights.
  • Exterior Choices: Opt for siding options like stucco, lap siding, or board & batten, color choices for siding, trim, roof, and front door, roofing materials such as asphalt shingles or tile, and various exterior light fixture styles.

  • Bathroom Finishes: Customize with shower/tub types and tile designs, shower/tub door styles, cabinet designs, countertop choices, and lighting & mirror styles.
  • Interior Finishes: Choose flooring colors and materials, paint color palettes, and door hardware designs.


Your Vision, Our Expertise

Our approach ensures that homeowners are actively involved and informed throughout the design process. With the clarity provided by our 3D renderings, you can make confident decisions about your ADU’s design. Once you have an idea of what you want to build, reach out to us for a customized “all-in” scope and budget for your ADU project in Greater San Diego.
