Recent legislative changes removed the legal barriers to constructing Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) in California and have led to a major ADU boom in California. The engines of this growth and popularity are the best accessory dwelling unit builders in Long Beach.

These professionals specialize in custom home building and constructing ADUs that combine style and functionality. Many of these professionals also incorporate sustainable and energy-efficient methods into their design and building process. Most importantly, these builders are some of the highest-rated professionals serving the residential market. 


Treeium

5352 Laurel Canyon Boulevard, Suite #200, Valley Village, CA 91607

Treeium’s ADU and garage conversion portfolio highlights spaces that celebrate textures, palettes, and materials and create a warm and inviting environment in the process. These secondary dwelling structures feature interiors dominated by smooth textiles of transitional design and the overall functional and smart use spaces of contemporary style. The firm’s ADU project in Sherman Oaks, for instance, embodies the best of both worlds. Dominated by a white palette and light beige tones, these elements are contrasted by minimalist dark lines and frames. Every corner of the home is built with space and function in mind to accommodate the daily demands of modern living.

One of the factors that helps the company produce thoughtfully designed ADUs is its 30 years of practicing the design-build delivery method. Collaborating with its clients from conception to completion allows the firm to provide a more detail-oriented approach to every project. The result is a multi-awarded portfolio that has secured the firm consecutive wins on Inc500 and Qualified Remodeler’s top contractors’ rankings.


Zieba Builders

1390 E Burnett Street, Suite A, Signal Hill, CA 90755

From start to finish, Zieba Builders stays with its residential clients to deliver thoughtfully designed interior and exterior spaces. As a design-build company that serves coastal Southern California, the firm’s extensive portfolio features projects in varying styles, value, and structural complexities. Its custom home construction work, for instance, is inspired by the traditional materials and forms of Cape Cod, Spanish Revival, Mid-Century, Craftsman, and Tudor, as well as the practical, stylish geometry of Contemporary and Modern designs. 

Smaller, yet equally efficient and stunning remodeling, renovations, and additions work are also highlighted in the company’s 30-year-old multi-awarded project list. This extensive scope can be attributed to the engineering and architecture background of its founder and principal, Joe Zieba. The firm’s overall practice has been applauded through recent recognition from the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA), Remodelers Council and the Chrysalis Awards committee.
