Zero Maintenance

We strive to build our ADUs to have minimum if any maintenance over the next 20 years.  By taking advantage of best practices in construction, and using modern materials, waterproofing systems, metal or cementitious exterior trim and fascia boards we ensure a water tight, fire rated, low maintenance house the looks beautiful.  The only exterior wood used on our stucco houses are the porches and decks, and on the shingle houses are the shingles themselves which are fire rated and should easily last 20 years.


Berkeley Little House caters to the elderly, or anyone who is feeling overwhelmed in their current large house but either cannot afford or just do not want to leave their neighborhood. Let us build a brand new low maintenance house in your backyard for you to move into. Then, if desired, we can update your main house and arrange local property management so you can have additional cash flow from renting out the larger house.
