Why are ADU kits so popular among Americans rather than stick-built houses?

Sep 16, 2022

Did you know you can convert ADU kits into a Granny Flat, Guest House, or build the Backyard Cottage without hassles? Building tiny homes from DIY kits right from scratch is painless. The tiny home kits come with all permits and planning, as you can order custom-made ones from BOSS Tiny House. The tiny house kits are not too expensive to build or afford and come direct from the factory at extremely low rates. However, such cannot be said about stick-built houses, which are more conventional and comparatively expensive to build and maintain. Here are a few reasons why owning an ADU (Accessory Dwelling Unit) is easier than before.


Rental income 

Turning the ADU kits into Airbnb rental spaces can help you earn $1000 monthly. Most homeowners prefer ADUs to generate a passive income for their families. The ADU is low maintenance, and there is no additional expense to maintain these dwellings. The ADUs provide a private, secure space and have pre-installed electrical and plumbing systems to ensure comfortable living. High-quality ADU kits come in different sizes and shapes. In addition, you can order high-quality tiny home kits from BOSS customized in different styles, designs, and layouts to make the rental space look more inviting and spacious.

On the other hand, the high maintenance stick-built homes cannot be given for Airbnb rentals as these wooden structures rot easily, mold, attract termites, and have poor insulation. Comparatively, the BOSS Tiny House is a better choice as they get manufactured from galvanized steel, ensuring high resistance to molding, rotting, rusting, and attracting pests and termites. As a result, the tiny homes from BOSS can attract better customers assuring a better rental income.

Private space for your in-laws – Durable, safe and well-insulated

If you are looking for an alternative to elderly care facilities and assisted living, then tiny house kits from BOSS are ideal. Rather than paying a fortune at assisted home communities, keep the loved ones close by building ADA-compliant ADUs. The single-level Granny Flat can make your mother-in-law happy, as she gets to stay close yet feels independent to move around her private space. The high-quality kits have a 3-year warranty and arrive in 4 to 6 weeks. The CA-certified and FM-approved ADUs are fire-resistant, moisture-proof, and offer optimal PIR insulation. In addition, the energy-efficient ADUs and tiny homes have 2” walls that exceed Title 24 Certification.

On the other hand, stick-built houses with wooden structures are not durable and tend to rot and attract mold and mildew. Furthermore, the stick-built houses offer poor insulation as the 4” walls hardly meet Title 24 Certification. The stick-built homes require additional waterproofing and repainting every few months, which gets expensive with the time. Lastly, it takes 3 days to install the tiny home kits with 2 laborers, whereas the stick-built home installation is slow, laborious, and comparatively costlier.
