Then consider this trending new topic - ADU's. An ADU stands for Accessory Dwelling Unit that have been gaining in popularity in recent years. Cities like Seattle have programs and special developers who make these prefab tiny home designs to be added to your existing backyard.
Thanks to recent press by Elon Musk living in one of these made by Boxable, this concept has really taken flight!
These little prefabricated homes are not only modern and sleek in design but they are highly functional, sustainable, quick and easy to set up and did I mention - affordable! Their design allows them to be erected in almost any kind of location, not just an existing backyard. In fact, I just helped a client purchase a piece of land to build her own Tiny home.
I can see these will be around to stay as people are looking to move out of the cities, live on land where you can grow your own food and live more sustainably. Boxable is one of the more popular builders because their homes can be installed in just one day.
Even if you do not consider living in a Tiny home yourself they are very versatile. These could be used to set up Short Term rentals in key areas, combined to make a larger prefab home or even for emergency shelter purposes. Click the link to see how these homes are being used.
What would you do with one of these if you had one?
