 This company turns garages into tiny homes for free


prior to january of it would not have been possible to turn a detached garage into a home what the laws that have changed in california and also in a number of other areas do is let you repurpose incredibly valuable land were in a wonderful neighborhood all the infrastructures here the neighborhoods fully built out and yet this particular piece of space on the lot was being used to store junk so in los angeles county there are detached twocar garages that we could convert into a home like this we build this and we dont charge the homeowner for it theres no lien placed on the property we pay for it and we share the rental income with the homeowner and that rental stream depending on the neighborhood is between four thousand and ten thousand dollars a year and at the end of our lease typically years we leave and all this is still belongs to the homeowner without any cost Music we build one thing and we do it in high volume its really manufacturing not construction that lets us get our costs for the units down so having achieved those two things we can deliver housing at a very low price and as a result we rent at a very low price and we look for tenants.

 who work in this community and can't afford to live here

 theyre otherwise commuting long distances what i like about the program is the fact that i didnt have to do anything but a sign on the dotted line in one respect and they came out and did all the work got all the permits everything was sort of a complete project i know how hard sometimes it is to find a decent place to live you know in los angeles area and i just felt you know that i can do my part in helping with affordable housing by having them built the apartment in the back that also you know brings up my property value as Music well when i first ed doing this i really thought homeowners would be driven almost entirely by the economics one of the most gratifying things in doing this has been learning that about a third or more of our homeowners are doing this for altruistic reasons they see the property they recognize the challenge in their community for affordable housing and this is a way without them having to come up with money that they can actually provide something provide housing for people in the community who serve the community and who need a home '
