Meet Our Team

Homebuyers are starting to factor ADU potential in almost ever purchase decision. Property values continue to rise and buyers are no longer counting on being able to move up into a larger home. Instead, they are forward thinking of an ADU to help house aging parents, remote work flexibility and potential rental income. ADUs are a huge opportunity that will continue to grow as demand increases

We wanted to offer a modern lifestyle on the interior, and have the exterior be close enough to what is there that it blends in. And we wanted to create not just a box, but work with the beautiful indoor outdoor relationship as we do in our larger homes, and make sure we bring the light in, and create a beautiful, cozy outdoor patio that relates to multiple rooms.
Scott built his first ADU for Ronald Regan while still in the military. With 35 years construction experience with large scale production housing, there isn’t an issue Scott and his team haven't experienced or anticipated.
The military installed a deep respect for planning that informs everything I do- and I tend to think about details a lot more than your average contractor. When I worked on large scale housing developments I was the guy everyone checked with to be sure we hadn't missed a potential problem. I bring that same level of attention to the ADU process.

Why ADU DIGGS
After decades in the residential property business, we looked around the neighborhoods we know and love and were disappointed to see that they just didn’t match what people needed any more. Families worried about increasing property taxes, trying to figure out how to stay close to aging parents and growing kids, looking to work or school from home.
Our passion is to support families stay in their neighborhoods by keeping the cost of ADUs low while also ensuring we’re not just dropping modern boxes into spaces where they don’t fit.
We’ve always loved using outdoor space to maximize the use and enjoyment of a home, and we don’t see why we can’t have that with ADUs, too. And we know that the modern style doesn’t look right everywhere. Our mission is to transform a site into something that can be used flexibly and can support a family, without changing the look and feel of a neighborhood.
