This was the first lightHouse LivingHome, installed in October 2019. The owners were seeking an efficient living solution that would allow them to occupy their new property while building their primary residence. The meticulously-designed accessory dwelling unit (ADU) includes everything they needed: a custom kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, and laundry room, with flexible storage space to boot.
The 423-square-foot tiny home was efficiently constructed as a single Plant Module, trucked to the site, and installed in a single day. On-site finish work was limited to utility connections and minor exterior trim and detailing, which included the lightHouse LivingHome’s signature, hand-crafted entry light, stair, and awnings.
