Description of business, organization, invention

We offer design services, plan-sets, and constructed buildings that implement our smart house strategy. Our strategy offers an affordable solution to curb sprawl type development by using Accessory Dwelling Units to create rental income for the home-owner. The key to this strategy is that the ADU rents for more than it costs to finance. This requires a low cost/ high value ADU as well as desirable urban placement.
