After local permits are obtained, Kasita's Accessory Dwelling Units can be installed in less than one day.
Kasita, an award-winning manufacturer of modular homes, has been approved to manufacture and sell its prefabricated and tech-heavy homes in Nevada and California.
Winning a design award from the American Institute of Architects, as well as being hailed by Forbes as the next big thing in real estate, Kasita produces homes that are move-in ready and equipped with a fully integrated home automation system. The automation system enables the home's inhabitants to have complete authority of the home through voice and a mobile app - controlling lights, climate, and sound. The modular homes also come with appliances and furniture.

Once a buyer or developer completes local permitting requirements, installation of a Kasita home can take less than one day.
In addition to its main Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU), Kasita offers other options, including stackable units designed for multi-family, and a disaster relief model meant to quickly step in and provide a high quality, affordable housing solution.
"This is a very important milestone for Kasita," says Martyn Hoffmann, Kasita's CEO, "State-level certifications and approvals are a critical step." 
Specifically, Kasita has been approved under the California Department of Housing and Community Development and the Nevada Manufactured Housing Division to build and sell its ADU in California and Nevada. Sales in both states will begin in early November.
