Backyard House

Backyard House

Add value and versatility to your home with an efficient, stylish backyard house.  These dwellings are ideal for guests, family members, and even long term rental income.  Some homeowners even find that they are an ideal way to add additional space to a home, such as an office or studio without the disruption of a major renovation or addition.  A backyard unit can be the ideal solution to your space and versatility challenges.

Constructing a new tiny home is exciting, but can also be intimidating.  The popularity of these dwellings has exploded in recent years, and experience in building tiny houses is limited.  Building a small house requires thoughtful design and materials sourcing, and is in many ways actually more difficult than constructing a traditionally sized home.
