Event description

Description

Did you know that prefab homes can also be used for Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) such as backyard secondary units?

Prefab ADUs are built to the State of California Building Code and are legal anywhere in a residential zoning district where there is already a single family home. Built off-site, it makes this small unit that much more sustainable--its small size already makes ADUs greener requiring less materials and less consumption of utilities. Off-site manufacturing, or production environment, means the materials are protected from the weather and manufacturing efficiencies results in less wasted material.

There are several floor plan layouts and sizes of ADUs meant to accommodate needs and site constraints. The exterior of the units can also be finished to match any types of architecture design.

We invite you to learn more about prefab ADUs at our ADU Showcase. Steve Vallejos, owner of prefabADU.com will install a prefab “micro-unit” (150 square foot) ADU on the parking lot of SCCAOR. You will be able to touch, feel and ask questions about prefab construction, process and setting.

The purpose of the event is to demystify prefab construction and facilitate the conversation that these are a commercial viable solution. With understanding and familiarity of prefab construction, these units should be a well-accepted option that we hope someday soon will only require an over-the-counter approval by local jurisdictions.

Here is a very informational interview with Steve Vallejos, by Kol Peterson--it includes video of a recent setting in Dublin, California and virtual reality tour of a unit.

If you are interested in attending an ADU workshop to understand how to complete a site analysis, permitting process, construction, lending and leasing--one is taking place on September 29th from 8am-4pm, register by clicking here. You do NOT need to register for both events as workshop participants will have an opportunity to view the prefab as part of the workshop.

Lastly, if you would like to be added to our ADU Program interest list to receive future announcements, please register here.

This event has been co-sponsored by SCCAOR, prefabADU.com and HTSV.
