Building an Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) is an important addition to your home. There are several factors to consider, including hiring the right ADU contractor. We’ve built dozens of ADU’s in the metro area, and we can help you wade through the many considerations to create the right plan and design for you.

  • Step 1: We Evaluate Your Project

    We first get a clear understanding of your needs. Do you need an ADU for passive income, a home office or to be close to a loved-one who needs care? We make sure that we have a clear understanding of your project goals before we do anything else. Our experience as an ADU contractor insures we will provide you with the best plans to meet your needs.

  • Step 2: What are the codes and rules for ADU’s in your municipality?

    The next step is to get a clear understanding of the rules and codes that govern adding an ADU to your property. Most Denver-metro municipalities allow ADU’s however the rules vary from city to city. Armed with the knowledge of what we can and can’t do within your city’s building codes, we can take the next step, design.

  • Step 3: Design

    Upon completing a review of your design goals and vision, we create site plans, an initial floor plan and elevations. After getting this plan dialed-in we the prepare the visual plan.

    The visual design plan for your ADU includes selections of interior finishes like flooring, countertops and other materials to make your project unique. We work with dozens of vendors insuring you lots of design an pricing options.

  • Step 4: Construction Planning

    Once we’ve gathered all the information and finalized your design, we will provide a detailed cost report for the project and timelines. Once you sign off, we begin purchasing materials and pulling permits for the project.

  • Step 5: Let’s Build Your ADU!

    Now’s it’s time to watch your ADU come to life! Your production manager, assigned specifically to your project, will be there every step of the way to answer any questions you may have. They also handle all city code inspections until your certificate of occupancy is provided by the city.

We bought an older 70's split level that was in real need of a remodel. AAA Home Improvements came highly recommended and they did not disappoint. Toby, JT, Carlos and Frank were great to work with. Incredibly responsive and helpful along the way. the finishes are great, and we are still absolutely thrilled with the outcome! Every 5-star they get is most definitely well-deserved! I'll find before and after pics to share to show their fab craftmanship!
AAA did a fantastic job renovating our basement. It was a big job from gut to demo to full finish and we were thrilled with the results. Toby was a great project manager, as was JT helping us ensure all aspects met our expectations and satisfaction. We hit very few snags, and when we did, they worked with us to find a swift solution. Our neighbors used them for three home renovations as well and everyone was pleased by the work. Great job by AAA.
We’ve used AAA for 3 projects and have been delighted each time. Bob was thoughtful in his designs and was able to work with our budget. JT, Bill and Carlos worked around our schedule, 2 rowdy dogs and small additions to the scope of the project. Good quality construction at a fair price. Toby’s team couldn’t be any nicer!
I have had AAA Home Improvements complete quite a few jobs for me. The first was a total basement build in which the workmanship was superb. The job is not measured at completion, however 10 years later when no issues have came up. No workmanship failures, everything is as it should be. I also had them install new windows which are still easy to operate, open and close and they are tight. They also installed a new Deck for me in 2015, once again a fantastic job. Another job was to remodel a home for my wife's aunt. Upstairs kitchen complete remodel, including cabinets, tile on floor, redo the bathrooms with new tile and fixtures. Once again a great job at a reasonable price. Then again, I had AAA repair hail damage on that home. The crew came out right after the storm and had to board up all the front windows as they were blown out from the hail. They ordered new windows, repaired wood facia panels, and installed the new windows when they arrived. AAA is not a cheap fly by night operation, their work is meant to last and it does.
AAA did a wonderful job on the addition on our home. A few hiccups, but nothing major, overall the project came out great and we were very pleased with the end result. I have recommended them dozens of times to my clients and friends.
