TinyMod™ is committed to revolutionizing the future of affordable living solutions by providing innovative and thoughtfully designed prefabricated ADUs and single-family dwellings
What is a prefab home?
- SIPs (Structural Insulated Panels)
Prefab homes, short for prefabricated homes, are dwellings that are constructed off-site in sections or modules and then transported to their final location for assembly, offering a quicker and more efficient building process compared to traditional on-site construction.
What should I know before building an ADU?
Before building an ADU, it is important to ensure that it is legal, safe, and ready to use. TinyMod™ only works with certified builders and we will check your area’s zoning laws to make sure you are allowed to build an ADU, as zoning laws vary from city to city and state to state. Once you have been ensured that your TinyMod™ is legal you can maximize your income, increase your property’s overall value, and expand your worldview by hosting guests for short-term or long-term rentals. Our TinyMod™ team looks forward to helping you with the perfect design to ensure a profitable endeavor.

- Multi-Generational Living - Aging Parents or Adult Children

Benefits of TinyMod™
Return on investment
ADUs and small dwellings offer a significant return on investment, whether by way of home value or rental income. An accessory dwelling unit (ADU) is a legal and regulatory term for a secondary house or apartment that shares the building lot of a larger, primary home. The unit cannot be bought or sold separately, but they are often used to provide additional income through rent or to house a family member. For example, an elderly parent could live in a small TinyMod™ and avoid having to move to an expensive assisted living facility, while staying close and maintaining independence.
Retirement income planning
Aging homeowners are making ADUs part of their retirement income planning by moving out of the main house and into their TinyMod™ to gain more income and age in place.
Your TinyMod™ can be used as a short-term or long-term rental. In fact, ADUs are becoming increasingly popular with investors for their flexibility and profitability. A TinyMod™ is perfect for large families, work-from-home hideaways, rentals or a combination of all three. Overall, ADUs are a growing trend in the US and are being accepted by municipalities across the country.
