Owner Manager Build Route

Building an Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) as an owner-manager presents a unique opportunity to directly oversee and manage every aspect of the construction process, from initial design to final build. Utilizing the Ohana Platform, owner-managers are equipped with advanced tools and resources that simplify decision-making, enhance customization, and provide expert guidance throughout the journey. Here’s how the process unfolds:

Step 1: Selecting a Pre-Designed Plan

The first step in your owner-manager build is selecting a pre-designed ADU plan from Ohana's diverse collection. These designs cater to a range of needs and preferences, ensuring that whether you're looking for a cozy studio or a more spacious two-bedroom layout, there's a plan that fits your project's requirements.

Step 2: Tailoring with the 3D Configurator

With the chosen plan in hand, the real-time 3D configurator offers a dynamic platform to customize your ADU. This immersive tool allows for real-time visualization and customization of various elements, including layout, finishes, and materials. The configurator's intuitive design makes it easy to experiment with different configurations, ensuring the final design perfectly aligns with your vision and the needs of the occupants.

Step 3: Guided by the AI Co-Pilot

The AI Co-Pilot is an invaluable resource for owner-managers, providing real-time advice, insights, and answers to construction-related queries. This AI-driven assistant covers a broad spectrum of topics, from pre-construction considerations like permitting and budgeting to specific construction details. The AI Co-Pilot helps navigate the complexities of building codes and regulations, ensuring compliance and streamlining the decision-making process.

Step 4: Enhancing Customization with the Product Clipper

The Product Clipper tool empowers owner-managers with the ability to personalize their ADU designs further by incorporating real-world finishes and materials. This tool facilitates the exploration and clipping of products from any website, which can then be seamlessly integrated into the 3D model. This not only enriches the design process but also aids in maintaining a clear vision and consistent aesthetic throughout the construction phase.

Step 5: Managing Your Project via the Buyer Dashboard

The Buyer Dashboard serves as the central hub for managing your ADU project. Here, you can access saved designs, manage your project checklist, and collaborate with your construction team efficiently. The dashboard also houses the Vision Board, where you can organize and share chosen finishes, ensuring that every detail of your ADU reflects your desired outcome.

Embarking on an owner-manager ADU build with the Ohana Platform equips you with state-of-the-art tools and personalized support, making the construction process more manageable and enjoyable. From selecting the ideal base design to applying the final touches of customization, Ohana ensures you remain at the helm of your project, with expert guidance and innovative solutions at your fingertips.
