Kris Olson, a long-term resident of Portland, living on the east side in the Richmond neighborhood, partnered with Shelter Solutions to build a bright, inviting, and spacious ADU for family, friends, and visitors to enjoy.

Vin & Sarah made a big decision to use up part of their back yard and a portion of the equity in their home to build an ADU. They wanted a long-term investment that increases the value of their home, and will continue to increase over the years, while providing income. As you can see, it worked out beautifully. Sarah and Vin are one of many Shelter Solutions customers that are benefiting financially from having Shelter Solutions LLC design a build an ADU for them.
Lisa Ward explains the benefits of building an ADU in her backyard for her aging parents. She moved them out of a local assisted living facility to have them safe, and within a few steps of her home in Portland. Lisa shares her insights on the building process which she says was easy, smooth, and always within budget. Additionally, she shows appreciation for Shelter Solution’s attention to detail, authentic and approachable team, and collaborative nature throughout the entire project.
Shelter Solutions rescued us from an ADU project gone awry in the hands of a bad contractor. They did it through COVID, they did it on time, and they helped us expand the scope of the build for way less $$ than we were expecting! We had a contractor start on flatwork in October, with a move-in deadline in June. We cut losses and Shelter Solutions took over in January with barely the foundation poured. Over the next few months, they corrected mistakes, nailed down details and improved our ADU's accessibility and feel. Can't recommend them enough, whether you start out correctly (with a good team) or you've already sunk time and effort into less quality outfits. These guys are miracle workers
I’ve recently moved into a wonderful ADU that Shelter Solutions built for me. I love it! The process was very smooth and easy, from visiting a similar ADU to help me decide what I wanted, to choosing layout and appliances, to the building process. Once started, everything went smoothly, with an online calendar to let me know what to expect when. When I had questions, I was able to ask any one on the team, and always got a prompt response. When I discovered I had made a mistake and chosen the wrong interior paint color, they promptly made the change to the correct one, with no hassle, even though it was my fault! The Shelter Solutions staff were wonderful, and I was very happy with the contractors who came to do the work. I would strongly recommend Shelter Solutions for anyone wanting to build an ADU.
The Shelter Solutions team were a dream to work with. Everyone on the team including all of their subs were great, on time, communicative and solutions oriented. We have done a lot of home remodels over the years and we decided to hire Shelter Solutions to build an ADU on our property for our parents. Everything from initial design to completion meet our expectations and beyond. They really listened to us and were easy to work with. The tools they use, BuilderTrend, gave us visibility of everything we needed and made us feel like we were tracking and always taken care of. We would use Shelter Solutions again in a heart beat and recommend anyone considering building an ADU to use Joe.
