Dweller

Dweller – a Portland ADU builder, builds and installs accessory dwelling units (ADUs) in a low cost, efficient manner to allow as many homeowners as possible to benefit from this source of extra income and desperately needed housing

Dweller specializes in producing ADUs in an affordable, efficient manner to allow as many homeowners as possible to benefit from this source of extra income and housing. Our model is unique because we build all of our ADUs offsite which saves substantial time and money compared to ADUs built onsite. And instead of requiring the homeowner to manage a lengthy design, permitting and construction process, Dweller handles the entire process at a fixed, affordable cost to the homeowner.

Two Choices With Dweller

A homeowner can buy directly  from Dweller or enter into a ground lease with Dweller.

Meet Bryan and Jen Danger, a couple who quit their jobs in 2012 to live and travel in a van on a quest to “find themselves”. They returned with little money and had no choice but to convert their garage into a home. This life-changing & down-sizing experience led Bryan and Jen to launch Zenbox design, and have since dedicated their lives to planning and designing small homes, also known as Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU’s), for clients looking to down-size and spend less time inside, and more time outside, exploring the world.
