Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs)

Affordable Housing, Simple Living

ADUs for Sale

Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) are not actually a type of construction but are an additional premises to an already occupied residence. An ADU can be anything from a converted garage or basement to a separate detached building. 
Detached ADU

In order to provide affordable housing options, many cities and counties across the country are allowing ADUs in all residential zones. Snake River Tiny Homes now sells  container homes that meet local zoning requirements for primary dwellings or ADUs.

Requirements of ADUs

Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) are increasingly popular additions to residential properties. These types of dwellings provide additional living space while taking up minimal land area. ADUs are a great way to create a separate living area for family, friends, or even tenants. 

ADUs generally have to be built to the same building requirements as site-built homes, such as International Residential Code (IRC) and International Building Code (IBC). Snake River Tiny Homes is one of the nation’s only tiny home contractors that can build to these high standards.

Detached ADUs

Detached ADUs are typically located in the backyard of a primary dwelling. They offer a great deal of flexibility in terms of size, design, and amenities. Modular housing, like container homes are built off site and therefore are considerably less expensive than site built ADUs even though they have the same construction standards as their site-built counterpart. 

Detached ADUs can also be used to create a rental unit, which can provide additional income for the homeowner.

Incredible experience working with Porter on The Elm model. First of all he was reachable meaning we were able to speak with him at the outset when we were strongly interested and had questions and then throughout the whole process. Quick to send additional photos, pics. He was alwayys professional, knowledgeable and kind! Highly recommend!

These tiny homes are so beautiful. The detail and design of the space is incredible. I liked the variety each home has as to offer. Nice to see this company in Eastern Idaho for families looking for a new tiny home.

Getting close to retirement...we learned that Debbie and Porter were with the Snake River Tiny Homes and we couldn't resist looking. The different models are great and the finishes and trims let you personalize them to what works best for you.We have known Debbie and Porter for some years now and have found them to be some of the best people there are. You can count on what ever they tell you being spot on! As we get closer, it's going to be difficult making a decision between these great models.

These tiny homes are beautiful! They have everything you need! Very sturdy, sound proof, and modern. We were helped right away. Mr. Talbot answered all the questions we had, and shared additional information that was very helpful too. I didn’t feel like I was being pressured into anything either which was really nice! Over all it was a great experience!

My husband and I went to check out one of their tiny homes. Mr. Talbot was an amazing host. He told us about all the cool features and answered all the questions we had. The place was cozy and updated, and they had done an amazing job with staging it. 10/10 would recommend this company.

Visited on Saturday. The salesman Porter was very helpful in answering most of our question. Lovely tiny homes. They seem solid and very well built. Not at all like an RV or even manufactured home. Much better quality. It would be great if our plan was to take it away from the area. But for our purposes there remains one big problem, a place to put it. Idaho Falls, and the surrounding area does not have any “tiny home” communities and I’m not about to put this adorable home into any of the local mobile home parks where there seem to be a lack of rules or covenants concerning the way people care for (or don’t care for) their homes. So although these might be great for someone who has their own land in which to put this, it won’t work for us. But we would certainly consider this should things change.
