Tiny prefab home makes picture-perfect backyard guesthouse

New, 1 comment

But it does not come cheap

Tiny living and prefab construction collide beautifully in this backyard guesthouse designed by Bay Area upstart Avava Systems. Located in Livemore, California, the 264-square-foot shelter is the first completed project for the company’s BriteSpace line, which offers dwellings between 120 and 480 square feet.

This particular build showcases the company’s use of high-quality, sustainable materials like real oak flooring, low-e windows, structural-insulated panels, and LED lighting. The interior vibe is sleek and airy. The open living area features an Ikea-furnished kitchen, compact bathroom, huge windows, and a wraparound deck.

Impressed? Well, it’ll cost ya. The base cost for a fully-functional standard unit of this size is $86,554, not to mention extensive add-on options like solar energy and rain water collection systems and various upgrades.
