Case study: Studio ADU Floor Plan

Studio ADU plan: 220 sq ft with bathroom


The homeowners were looking to maximize the size of the ADU while still leaving the space for backyard entertainment with the family. 

  • Designed for accessibility
  • With space for a queen bed
  • Easy in cleaning and maintenance
  • Matching the look and style of main house


The size of this ADU was determined by the distance to the property lines, distance to the walls of the main house,  and backyard landscape.

The open space living room and kitchen area has high ceilings  with a sliding door looking into the backyard. 

The project has been completed for $170,000 and is  currently rented out for $2,400 (September, 2023).

Small ADU Design Rules

Some features of tiny homes are obvious. Use white to make the space look bigger. Use lots of windows to make the space feel bigger. Use natural materials because they tend to make us feel good.

Some features are less obvious and need careful planning.

Island in a tiny home

Multifunctional spaces

Your island can double up as your office. Stairs can hide drawers for your shoes – make sure to check the size of regular off the shelf drawers not to break the bank on custom furniture.

Thoughtful storage

Shelves, drawers and cabinets should be sized for your personal belongings. The height of shelves differs depending on what you plan to keep there – tea cups or folders.

steps to loft in tiny home

Use of height

Some rooms benefit from high ceilings. It is almost always the case with the living room. However a bedroom and a bathroom can be 8 feet high. This gives you space for a loft above to be used as you wish. Mind the steps.

Space dividers

Some spaces need additional privacy. Clever use of dividers lets you separate spaces without overwhelming it with walls or slab doors.

What Our Clients Say About Us

Project: Casita Construction

When I started on this journey, I was a total beginner. With this team I was much more confident in my decisions.

Jane Z., Redwood City

Project: ADU in WUI zone

When your future ADU is by a creek or has an easement next to it, is in WUI zone or has to be ADA accessible, or all four as was our case – there is no way a homeowner can figure it out on their own. You want this team on your side.

Tiny home for bigger living

Demand for non-IRC tiny homes, either stand-alone or backyard dwellings, has been rising significantly since the pandemic, as the “work from home” and some homeowners looked for affordable space.

We have see the success of the Tiny Homes Fests across California to confirm that there is a huge interest in tiny houses.

Along with the rest of the housing market, however, the costs are rising.

Tiny homes are generally designated as being under 400 square feet, but the average size of a tiny house for sale in the U.S. is actually just 225 square feet and built on a trailer with wheels and does not meet the stringent building codes regular new housing has to meet.

In fact, some tiny houses are simply built using a garden shed as their starting point.

What to consider when planning a tiny home?

One problem many tiny house on wheels owners are finding especially annoying is this: after they have parked their home on someone’s property, hooked up all the utilities from the main residence, and then they are learning the local zoning code doesn’t allow a tiny house to be parked there. 

Fortunately, this is also starting to change. Santa Clara County has officially allowed to place tiny homes in the backyards.

San Jose followed suit:

A tiny home on wheels (THOW) may be installed on a property with a single-family home, subject to complying with Zoning Code standards and obtaining a building permit.

For San Jose residents, THOW is a detached self-contained unit intended for separate, independent living quarters for one household, designed and built to look like a conventional building structure, and which includes basic functional areas that support normal daily routines such as cooking, sleeping, toilet, and bathing facilities. So, no shortcuts like an outdoor shower. And naturally, it has to be licensed and registered with the California Department of Motor Vehicles, meet the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) 119.5 requirements or the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 1192 standards, and certified for ANSI or NFPA compliance by a qualified third-party inspector.
