Founder Stan Acton has been a builder since he was 10 years old. It began the day he broke his father’s wooden mallet. The mallet was a family heirloom that Stan’s father had crafted himself on his own father’s antique Shopsmith lathe. Stan was devastated and rushed to grab a hunk of old firewood. He carefully took the wood, placed it on the antique Shopsmith-and in that moment, his passion for carpentry was born.

As a passionate ADU advocate, Stan Acton committed to utilizing the 30 year legacy of Acton Construction, to specialize and focus solely on navigating regulations, designing, and building ADUs to help homeowners create lasting, long-term housing options to keep family close, earn passive income, and ultimately grow our communities responsibly. Acton ADU was born.

A veteran design build company with decades of residential residential design and construction experience to tackle the challenge of making ADUs accessible for homeowners who need them.

I moved to Palo Alto from Boulder, Colorado when I was three years old. As a kid, I spent every waking hour building forts, chairs, boxes, tables, and all sorts of wooden contraptions with whatever I could get my hands on. I was fortunate. High schools still had wood shop and I was even more fortunate to have an inspiring shop teacher named Bud Jamison.

Bud never bothered with the curriculum. Instead, he encouraged us with a blank canvas and a heaping load of leeway to chase our creative endeavors. Bud’s the one that really turned me into a designer and a builder. The experience instilled in me an appreciation for detail and beauty, specifically the beauty of a well-designed form.

Take that discovery and couple it with the opportunity to express myself freely? I was inspired. But the greatest artists (not that I’d count myself among them), have parameters too. Whether it’s literally a blank canvas with defined dimensions, or the volume of a slab of marble ready to be chipped into a statue
