2020 Brings Significant Code Changes
join us to dive deep on two of the major changes: Cal Green and Accessory Dwelling Units.


CARRIE SHORES DILLER/Principal Architect & Co-Founder
[email protected]    510-725-9788

Principal at both Inspired ADUs and Larson Shores Architecture and Interiors Carrie is dedicated to timeless architectural and design excellence rooted in a sense of place and purpose. She is a licensed architect and LEED AP, receiving her master’s degree in architecture from UC Berkeley, where she met her business partner Josh Larson. Carrie’s fierce commitment to ADUs and aging in community began when she, herself, faced serious spinal problems. She realized, firsthand, that her home was fighting rather than supporting her. The wisdom gained through her 10-year battle for wellness and personal independence opened her eyes to the environmental needs of the disabled and elderly, informing every Inspired ADU.

Carrie is an integral member of Berkeley’s ADU Task Force, helping to educate homeowners and move legislation along. In addition, she works as an educator for Small Homes, Big Impact, an ADU-focused pilot program from the Housing Trust of Silicon Valley.

Remodels are my passion! Growing up the daughter of a contractor, my family owned and remodeled more than thirty apartments and homes. I was frequently called on to "run over and make sure things are on track," and as a result, learned what makes remodels go smoothly and what makes them a disaster! I’ve spent more than a decade as a process consultant in city and county planning, and building departments, so have that insider knowledge about Marin’s permitting and building process.  With a degree in engineering, natural ease as a negotiator and project manager, I will be your guide throughout your remodel so you can have the home of your dreams.
