Building materials now include fiber-enhanced concrete, flexible panels, fiberglass, 3D printed assemblies, insulation, and fire-retardant alternatives. Durable finishes for floors, counter tops, cabinets and wall decoration have also benefited from material developments. However, any home is more than its constituent parts; it is a major purchase whose value is affected by human and environmental considerations. Since a modular compact or tiny home may come from a factory and arrive on wheels, it should not be confused with a large vehicle that cannot retain value due to mileage wear or the product/user profile.

Maintainability/Sustainable Materials

Our engineers work with research facilities and vendor partners to identify materials that address environmental, fire, climate, and fabrication issues. Construction cost is balanced against functionality.

Supplemented/City Connected Services

Power, water, and gas systems designed to supplement available services or provide independent operation. Built-in adaptability to suit site conditions and provide ease of use.

Flexibility/Adaptive Systems

Smart home appliances, lighting, security, personal assistance, and maintenance systems are all part of our research. In development are systems providing predictive conditioning and enhanced valuation.

Choice/Modular Structural Components

Applying advanced insulated panels with self-aligning interlocking systems, tilt-up and drop-off modules, our designs support adaptable layouts and expansion at the destination site.

Retention/Higher Quality Finishing

Value retention and longer warranty support are engineered into our homes by applying durable finishes, damage-resistant surfaces, comprehensive QC and connected predictive maintenance systems.

Comfort/Space Optimization

Small home space utilization without relegating comfort is critical to the design. Our team works with multi-axis furniture, and innovative fold-away fixtures to find the right blend.
