CREST 'BACKYARD' HOMES.  

Alive And Well In 2019! 

 

Happy New Year Everyone. Hope you all enjoyed your Christmas and New Years Eve. Now it's time to hit the ground running. I always look forward to the new year and love a fresh start and all the new and exiting challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.

We've come a long way in the 'BACKYARD' HOME biz since 2016 when the Senate and Assembly Bills were first passed in  Cali.;  Albeit we've been in the Small Home Biz for over three decades. Small home construction be it ground up design build or factory built is our forte. We are pleased to introduce Active Rain, Facebook, Linked in and Bigger Pockets to our exciting and beautiful brand of BACKYARD HOMES aka Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU).

 

Unlike many consulting companies in this fast paced niche we offer much more. We are not just consultants charging outlandish fees to counsel you on your BACKYARD HOME interests and goals. After you spend a lot of money on the counseling where do you go? With contractors maxed to the hilt 6 months to a year out and suffering from an extreme labor shortage a lot of folks will find themselves in search of a contractor who can actually help them full fill their goals.

 

We are a California licensed General & Manufactured Home Contactor, B&C-47 521400, Licensed Manufactured Home Dealer DL1501015, Real Estate Broker 01795582, developer, property manager and investor with over 100 years of combined design, build, construction, factory built housing and real estate development experience. We are a one stop turnkey family owned and operated solution. We also offer solutions to unpermitted and/or non conforming structures i.e. garage conversions, room additions,  exterior structures, ADU's, etc.

Want to go ground up design & build? Factory Built? Looking for a propety that has an existing BACKYARD HOME? Looking for a property where you could add one? Our team would be honored to assist you. 

 

Have a wonderful and prosperous 2018!

I suspect the trend toward backyard homes will only increase as the population ages, and folks wish to keep aging parents close to home.

Definitely a trend! Reverse mortgages will also become a growing trend now that AARP and HUD fixed the used to be issues.

Happy New Year Myrl Jeffcoat  Thanks for dropping by. Always love hearing from you. That's one of several motives folks are adding them to their property. Predictably more than half want extra income. But that motive in and of itself doesn't always pencil.

Not just a trend Nevin Williams It's a happening that's here to stay and just getting its baby legs under it. This is evolving from a COTTAGE INDUSTRY (pun intended) to a full fledged GROWTH INDUSTRY.

OH my gosh, I love these, John! How many SF in that first one?

Multiple options Debe Maxwell, CRS starting from 10' to 16 feet wide by 36 to 60 feet long for factory built and the sky's the limit for site built.

Well, I love that design, John! I keep saying I'm going to find that lake lot and then I get busy and don't have time to find it! I will be calling one day!

Dear John,

Very cool. I could see many uses for these. Offices, painting studio, music room, guest quarters, income property. Factory built sounds awesome & possibly cheaper than site-built. In this area, we have factory builders. Mostly in Pennsylvania. Great products.

Looking forward to it Debe Maxwell, CRS

Hello John - you consistently share information and trends in the factory-built segment with us. The labor, time and other issues make this increased knowledge even more important.

Good Morning John DL Arendsen 

You are speaking of Tiny Homes? I've seen them on TV and in peoples backyards for kids or aging parents. We haven't seen too much of that in MA

Posted by Doug Dawes, Your Personal Realtor® (Keller Williams Realty - Topsfield, MA) 7 months ago

It's an ever evolving growth industy Michael Jacobs and now they're building them even better in factories than they are onsite and with a lot better materials and far less waste.

Posted by John DL Arendsen, Crest Backyard Homes "ADU" dealer & Contractor (CREST BACKYARD HOMES, ON THE LEVEL GENERAL & FACTORY BUILT HOME CONTRACTOR, TAG REAL ESTATE SALES & INVESTMENTS) 7 months ago

Not Tiny Homes by definition Doug Dawes. These are small homes no doubt. However, a Tiny Home is not allowed in Cali as they are typically built over a transportable chassis by individuals without any regulation and are therefore un-certifiable as to construction integrity.

Unfortunately there are literally hundreds perhaps thousands of Tiny Homes dotting the landscape with no place to go. They're not a certified HUD or MODULAR Factory Built nor a Recreation Vehicle (RHIA) certified and approved. Thus local jurisdictions are not issueing permits for them for BACKYARD HOME use. 

That stated, I am hearing some chatter in some juridictions about allowing them in certain areas under certain conditions. As the Tiny House Industry becomes more sophisticated and regulated I'm sure there will be some allowances made.
