The quickest, most economical way to answer California's housing crisis is to utilize what already exists and is right in your back yard!
California government agencies are now tiny home friendly and is encouraging homeowners through incentives to add Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU) to their properties to increase the housing stock. In some jurisdictions, backyard units can even be Movable Tiny Homes!
An ADU can come in many forms, a.k.a. 2nd unit, guest house, backyard cottage, companion unit, granny-flat, mother-in-law unit, casita, tiny home, healthcare caregiver or investment rental. It is an attached or a detached residential dwelling unit which provides complete independent living facilities for one or more persons and is located on the same parcel as the single-family dwelling is situated.
ReBuilding Green believes that today's manufactured homes provide an additional layer of realization of affordable living. PreFABulous homes can increase home value, provide rental income, or keep a loved one or family member close-by.
Although each municipality has it's own regulations, the state mandate defines an ADU as an attached dwelling unit not exceeding 50% of the floor area of the primary dwelling, up to a maximum of 1,200 square feet, or a detached dwelling unit not exceeding 1,200 square feet, independent of the square footage of the living area of the existing primary dwelling. Some jurisdictions have opted to the increased square footage of up to 1500 sq. ft. as well as not requiring the property owners to live on the property as their primary residence. Investors who purchased single-family dwellings now have an opportunity to build a 2nd unit with an opportunity of increased ROI's.

ReBuilding Green has designed an initiative to tackle the massive devastation of youth homelessness with the creation of the piloted, YIMBY Program. Willing homeowners can participate by literally housing homeless youth on their property while increasing property value and monthly cash flow.
Our youth, who are the very future of our country is facing housing insecurity in unprecedented numbers. The #RealCollege survey, the nations largest annual assessment of basic needs security amongst college students released a report in March 2019 that revealed that 60% of the 40,000 students who participated and enrolled in California's Community College systems had experienced housing insecurity in the previous year! Regretfully, 19% or 7600 of them were actually homeless in the previous year.
Stand with ReBuilding Green to take our youth off the streets with this make-sense affordable housing solution! Together, let's save this future generation by utilizing PreFABulous ADU's in backyards throughout California.
