Everyday people call our office looking for information about building a home using one of our advanced building methods. Usually the conversations center on one technology vs. the other based on the information they give us. If you have great access to a flat building area we recommend a Modular solution. If access is limited or the design doesn’t fit our box building templates, we suggest a Panelized solution.
This is an interesting question that came up when we completed a Backyard Home in Walnut Creek earlier this year. What started out as a plan to house his mother on site with them turned out to be the best investment decision he’s ever made. Our client was reviewing his assets with his financial planner upon completion and was shocked when he and the planner realized that they just turned a portion of his assets into something that has at least four times the benefits of what it was doing prior to building the Second Unit.
