Backyard Equity


Innovation Lab: Accessory Dwelling Units – through the design and installation of ADUs, we can help existing home owners expand their income-generating opportunities while creating additional affordable housing supply.

What are ADU’s?

  • A second living space on a single-family lot that’s distinct from the permanent residence - think of a self-sufficient attic, basement, or detached building with a kitchen, bathroom, and so on

What are the benefits?

  • Expands income-generating opportunities for homeowners

  • Creates additional affordable housing stock for renters

  • Develops flexibility in the housing market

  • Creates opportunities for caregiving of family members needing structured independence

  • More affordable construction costs than entirely new properties
