                                Tiny home options continue to grow in popularity thanks to high housing costs and lack of space for new ones to be built. California especially falls into this category causing great interest in building Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) to rent out for extra income or for aging parents, adult children, students, or someone just starting out.

LivingHomes YB1 was recently unveiled at the Summit festival in Los Angeles displaying an example of high-quality, design-focused prefab and what&#8217;s possible for the future.

State regulations on ADUs (Accessory Dwelling Units), or &#8220;Granny flats&#8221;, have been loosened, meaning tiny houses can exist, which sent LA architectural firm Minarc to the drawing board.

The Icelandic-inspired homes come flat-packed helping to reduce the cost of your future home office, guest house, rental apartment, yoga studio, or artist space.

The designers behind Minarc are Icelandic who bring their native country’s minimalist ideals to the forefront of their designs. The efficient structures are built using mnmMOD, a sustainable no-wood prefab panel system that’s built with 30% recycled material and are energy efficient. Each
