OHANA KIT: The total package for discovering, financing and installing your dream ADU—quickly and easily.

In the Fall of 2015, Hawaii passed legislation to address Oahu’s housing crisis. Following in the footsteps of select cities in California, Oregon, Washington State and others, Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) were legalized for Oahu homeowners. The new law permits ADUs to be rented long term. Homeowners looking to downsize can also move into a new OHANA KIT ADU while maximizing the rental income potential of their primary house.

On Oahu, ADUs may be permanently installed small homes no larger than 800 square feet for properties over 5,000 square feet, and 400 square feet for properties between 3,500 and 5,000 square feet. They may be fully detached structures featuring a full kitchen, bathroom and bedrooms. The OHANA KIT by Hawaii ADU has been designed to comply specifically with new regulations in Hawaii, and across the United States to make every homeowner’s ADU a low stress and lucrative endeavor.

The Opportunity

If you live on a residential-zoned property larger than 3,500 square feet, you may be eligible to build an additional small house called an Accessory Dwelling Unit or ADU.

Hawaii ADU simplifies the process of buying and installing a low maintenance, high performance ADU, which will add significant value to your property the day it’s installed.

Homeowners with no additional credit may qualify for an OHANA KIT ADU “OK Loan” at historically low interest rates, using the potential future income from the ADU to secure the loan.*

With the potential to generate $10,000 to $15,000 of additional income annually (or as much as $250,000+ over the next 25 to 30 years), eligible Oahu homeowners have an unprecedented investment opportunity in their own yards.


Why OHANA KIT by Hawaii ADU?

With zero down financing, the amount you can rent your OHANA KIT will exceed the monthly loan payment (in Hawaii), creating immediate positive cash flow as soon as the unit is rented.
The OHANA KIT enables people to live in a comfortable, stylish, secure and modern home at an incredible price. Our homes are meticulously designed to give you a sturdy, smart, relaxing and affording dwelling.
Modular Steel Framework & Robust Anchors
The Ohana Kit structure is based on a proven metal frame technology (ISO 9001 certified) that has been proven in the international shipping industry for decades. Our living and deck lanai modules utilize these same materials and technologies to assure incredible strength and rigidity.

SIPS Panels
SIPS or Structurally Insulated Panels are wall and ceiling pieces that are framed, insulated and finished in a factory using high R-value foam insulation. Then they are sent to the build site ready to quickly and efficiently install in one complete piece.

Standing Seam Metal Roof
Nothing beats metal roofs for performance and longevity. Ohana Kits come standard with a panelized metal roof system that once bolted onto the metal roof supports will withstand high winds and last for decades.

High R-Value Foam Insulation
Our factory installed, blown foam insulation expands into every crack and crevice to create a tight seal and eliminate thermal gaps which means your home stays cooler and resists pests.

Environmentally Friendly
Off site production saves the homeowner from noise, waste and chemical pollution. Extra materials such as steel can be collected during the build process and easily recycled.

Increase the appraised value of your property by an estimated 15% or more of its existing value by installing a new ADU. Earn substantial return on your investment with zero down financing.
Rent out your OHANA KIT long-term and enjoy income every month. In many areas of Hawaii, the cost of financing any of our models will be far less than the average rent in your neighborhood.
It’s always best when you can offer space for family members who need it. An OHANA KIT allows you to keep your loved ones close—but not too close!
If you plan to sell your property, the added value of your ADU will appeal to buyers who see its potential for rental income or additional living space.
While you must prepare your building site and secure all required permits, our team will be on hand to navigate you smoothly through the process.
Your OHANA KIT is built off-site in approximately 90 days and delivered to your property. Only the final steps— roof assembly, decking and finishing touches—are performed on-site. Most installations are completed in less than two weeks.
