Prefab ADU Educational Showcase for Public Officials and Industry Organizations

Share:

Housing Trust Silicon Valley invites public officials, staff, and industry organizations to learn more about prefab ADUs at our ADU Showcase.

Did you know that prefab homes can also be used for Accessory Dwelling Units such as backyard secondary units?

Prefab ADUs are built to the State of California Building Code and are legal anywhere in a residential zoning district where there is already a single family home. Built off-site, it makes this small unit that much more sustainable–its small size already makes ADUs greener requiring less materials and less consumption of utilities. Off-site manufacturing, or production environment, means the materials are protected from the weather and manufacturing efficiencies results in less wasted material.

There are several floor plan layouts and sizes of ADUs meant to accommodate needs and site constraints. The exterior of the units can also be finished to match any type of architecture design.

We invite you–public officials, staff, and industry organizations–to learn more about prefab ADUs at our ADU Showcase. Steve Vallejos, owner of prefabADU.com, will install a prefab “micro-unit” (150 square foot) ADU on the parking lot of SCCAOR. You will be able to touch, feel, and ask questions about prefab construction, process, and setting.

The purpose of the event is to demystify prefab construction and facilitate the conversation that these are a commercially-viable solution. With understanding and familiarity of prefab construction, these units should be a well-accepted option that we hope someday soon will only require an over-the-counter approval.

Please review this very informational interview with Steve Vallejos, by Kol Peterson, which includes video of a recent setting in Dublin, California and virtual reality tour of a unit.

If you you would like to invite members of the public/homeowners to an ADU workshop to understand how to complete a site analysis, permitting process, construction, lending, and leasing, one is taking place on September 29 from 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Please forward separate invitation found here. Workshop participants will have an opportunity to view the prefab ADU as part of the workshop.

If you would like to be added to our ADU Program interest list to receive future announcements, please register here.

We hope you are able to attend this educational event.

This event has been co-sponsored by SCCAOR, prefabADU.com, and HTSV.
