Sonder Pods

In 2018, Ed Stevenson's wife had just given birth to their second beautiful child. They were looking into getting an au pair, but didn’t have any space in their California home.

They began researching what it would take to get an accessory dwelling unit on their property and quickly realized how difficult everything was. From obtaining permits to design — and not to mention the lengthy timelines and potentially huge expense.

He quickly realized that thousands of other families had the same frustrating experience.

Ed founded SonderPods with the sole aim of bringing high-quality accessory homes within reach of the average family and making the process as easy and as enjoyable as possible. Every SonderPod has its own story of how it will impact each of our customers’ lives. Sonder Pods looks forward to creating a space that will play a small part in your story for many years to come.

United Dwelling

Learn More

California faces a crisis in affordable housing crisis. In an effort to address this problem, the state legislature passed a series of bills designed to encourage the construction of new affordable housing — streamlining the regulatory approval process, providing more state funding, and cracking down on local governments that fall short of their housing goals.

At United Dwelling, we looked at these new efforts and asked, “How can we make a difference?” The answer seemed obvious — the communities most in need of affordable housing were also in need of money to develop the housing and an organization that could efficiently manage the additional units… and an idea was born.

United Dwelling was created to facilitate converting underutilized garages or backyards into attractive housing at a price low enough to be truly affordable, providing homeowners with the same income they would gain if they did this themselves. We believe that the key to making this possible and delivering on our promise is to optimize operations and economies of scale.

We are early in this endeavor and our long-term success depends on making our customers happy. We look forward to working with homeowners to provide a convenient, seamless, and stress-free experience in converting garages and backyards into affordable housing, while delivering a compelling housing experience to the tenants who select a United Dwelling home. Please join us on our journey to change the way Los Angeles lives.

Connect Homes

Learn More

Acclaimed architect Jared Levy spent his entire professional career designing high-end modern homes that brought the “glass box in the sky” dream to California royalty. His work pushed the boundaries of functional modern design — emphasizing open plans, natural light and indoor-outdoor living. In Jared’s own words, he strives to design homes that “make you feel healthier, brighter, more connected to nature and your place in it”.

In 2004, Jared helped launch Marmol Radziner Prefab alongside architect Gordon Stott. Their award-winning work graced the covers of Dwell, Time, Newsweek and Builder. GQ Magazine praised their work as “Masterpiece in a Box” while their designs became the first modern prefab homes to be published in Architectural Digest.

But somewhere between importing marble from Italy and returning home to their old Californian bungalows, they realized their work wasn’t addressing the needs of the everyday homeowner. While the prefab industry resolved some inefficiencies encountered by traditional homebuilding and remodeling, it didn’t deliver on its potential: offering modern, sustainable design at an affordable price point. The duo was convinced there was a better way.

They spent the next two years developing and patenting a modular prefab system that dramatically reduced construction and delivery costs — costs that have kept modern prefab homes from being both high-end and low-cost. They also focused on simplifying the process by prioritizing transparent pricing and taking project management stress off the homeowner.

Since then, Connect Homes has built a team dedicated to making modern living more accessible by reimagining how we build and buy homes.

Mighty Buildings

Mighty Buildings is a construction technology company based in Oakland, CA that is innovating the construction industry by creating beautiful, sustainable, and high-quality homes using advanced materials, patented 3D printing technology, and robotics automation.

Our 3D printing technology allows us to produce modular houses and building components for our clients much faster than traditional construction.

Our 3D printers use a thermoset composite material we invented called Light Stone Material (LSM), which hardens when exposed to UV light, making it a more robust building material.

Mighty Buildings has a near-zero waste production process, preventing 1,100 - 2,000 kg of CO2 emission per 3D printed home. We are committed to achieving Net-Zero by 2028 - making our company 22 years ahead of the construction industry.

Not only are we certified under California's Factory Built Housing program to build units using 3D printing, but we are also the first company to achieve certification under the UL 3401 standard for evaluating building structures and assemblies.

We are backed by several notable International and Silicon Valley tech investors, including Khosla Ventures, Zeno Ventures, and Y Combinator.

We design homes to be lived in, with open spaces, lots of windows and floor plans that make sense. You will never look at building a home the “old way” again.

Our homes are factory built and finished on your site in less than 3 months. Custom homes typically take over 1 year, talk about game changing.

The cost of a Blu home is less than building a comparable custom home. We use our innovative design and precision factory technology to achieve this lower cost without losing any of the quality and finish of a premium home.

No matter what model, layout or finishes you design with us, Blu home products are sold with a predictable fixed price before we even start building it. This will give you the peace of mind that makes working with Blu such a breeze.

Headquartered in the San Francisco Bay Area, Modern Empathy was founded in 2017 to create scaleable opportunities for our longest lived members of society to sustain engaging lives.

Our ADU company has a strong focus on accessible design.

Our population is aging, but the structure of our communities too often limits lifelong wellbeing. Living isolated from family, in deteriorating houses in car-centric neighborhoods, creates health outcomes on par with a heavy smoking habit.

As we were prototyping aging in place technology, we noticed a pattern. Many people are struggling to remain in their communities or among family. Families need more flexibility in creating their own longevity-friendly living environments. We dove in headfirst when we saw an opportunity to help everyone achieve this, backed by our Scientific Advisors who consider Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) to be an important enabler for healthy people and communities.

The Bay Modular

Learn More

We’re on a mission to simplify construction projects for the average homeowner to the experienced property developer. Our goal is to make it easy to place a prefab ADU in any backyard in the country or build custom, yet affordable modular buildings.

We’ve witnessed the Bay Area economy flourish over the last decade. Homes are constantly under renovation to add more living space and brand new 5+ story retail-condominiums have sprung up throughout dense urban areas like Oakland’s Downtown & Uptown.

But witnessing the process of adding space and creating new housing is time consuming, tedious, and often frustrating. Our background in real estate and construction has exposed us to many delayed jobs, significant cost overages, and abandoned sites.

Our mission at Bay Modular is to make the process of homebuilding and property development simpler and more affordable. By introducing increased manufacturing and modular designs to our process, we can create custom prefab models that are built faster and more efficiently.

The bathroom maximizes space and efficiency with a European style glass shower, full tile in the bathroom, high end fixtures, and a closet large enough for both an optional combo washer/dryer and a linen shelf. Once on site, you can add a large deck to double your outside/inside living area. The Lighthaus is designed as a 400 Sq Ft home but has the ability to be a modular design.

Prefab Building

FAQs

What's the difference between different kinds of prefab buildings?

There are four primary types of prefab buildings. Standard prefab homes are much like stick-built homes, only built offsite. Prefab tiny homes are smaller wheeled living spaces, similar to RVs. Offices, studios, and bunkies are usually one room buildings used for work or extra sleeping, and usually don't have any plumbing. Guesthouses (or cabins, cottages, or ADUs) are similar to prefab homes but are usually made smaller to act as a second home, weekend getaway, in-law suite, or rental property. More details can be found in our Ultimate Guide to Buying a Prefab Home.
