Arete Dwelling Units builds free standing structures on your property creating more livable space. These types of structures are often referred to as “accessory dwelling units” or ADUs. These can include a garage, full guest home/casita, gym, workshop, studio, office, classroom, a multi-purpose room or any combination of these. 

Arete Dwelling Units is a new offshoot of Arete Homes of Santa Fe that has a specific focus on building accessory structures here in Santa Fe. This new company is a joint effort by owner and founder of Arete Homes of Santa Fe, Rob Gibbs and Realtor, Peter Ferrara. This idea emerged from the repeated inquiry request from the public for multi-generational living and the effort to help provide more housing to relieve the housing shortage. 

Our first project will be kicking off in the next month or so as we are just awaiting approval for the permit from the City to begin constructing the Hamilton House. This will be a complete guest home built on Peter Ferrara’s property to serve as his mother’s full-time and permanent residence. You can follow this building process at
Please check out our website to see optional layouts and floor plans and the process of how to get started. We are super excited to embark on this constructive journey through space and time with Santa Fe.
