Award-Winning ADU Designs That Won’t Break the Bank

Smarter design means
less cost for you.

We understand most homeowners don’t have an unlimited budget. We think beauty and budget don’t have to be enemies. We’re conscious of your pocketbook while creating value for your individual priorities.

Designing an ADU is complex.
Work with a seasoned partner to get your project done.

The Maxable team has designed hundreds of ADUs. We really can say we’ve seen it all. That means we know how to work with local jurisdictions to streamline permitting, work with contractors for faster, more efficient construction, and keep you informed as your advocate, partner, and ADU guru from start to finish.

“Contacting Maxable was the single most important decision we made. Now that we’re done, I’m confident that we would have made some costly mistakes if we hadn’t had the experts at our sides. In my opinion, you can’t afford NOT to work with Maxable Space on your ADU project.”

    A schematic design is a sketch that shows the floor plan and elevations for your ADU. This gives you something visual to review and give feedback on.

  4. PHASE 2: CONSTRUCTION DRAWINGS

    Construction drawings are the visual instructions to build your ADU. There are drawings and details for each component, from site preparations to finish details.

  5. PHASE 3: SUBMIT FOR PLAN CHECK

    The submittal is distributed to several city departments for review. Your design team will receive comments back from each department and make the changes the city requires.
