In a time when home prices are increasing at a far greater rate than the average income, there are numerous companies working hard to provide small prefab home solutions to offer affordable and practical housing solutions. Kasita is one of the more innovative designs we have seen, and we particularly like the “single package” delivery concept, which means the home is delivered as a single completed unit – this incredibly well designed small prefab home from Kasita is sure to inspire anyone interested in smaller sized home solutions! Check it out!

The Kasita prefab home is build to be a stand-alone structure that can be placed easily within an existing yard, or as a small prefab home on an acreage, lake property, in mountains or the forest. This flexibly is a large part of the attraction with such a building, and certainly adds to the appeal. Furthering the attraction of these structures, is that they are designed and build to be fully ‘stackable’, meaning that larger structures can be created, as needed. The main structure is called the “Independent”, and when combined in stacked combinations, Kasita refers to these as their “community” build.

creativity. The Kasita home is an excellent choice for anyone interested in simplifying their living environment – as they say “enough space for everything you need and nothing that you don’t”. The Kasita also excels as additional space to be added to existing properties. It can be used by existing property owners that would like some extra space, or as a guest home, backyard ‘buckie’, in-law/granny suite, or even an additional guest rental property. All of this on top of its use as a fantastic primary dwelling for those interested in a more simple living situation.

The Independent, their primary home unit is provided in three basic types – called Level I, Level II, and Level III.  The basic common floor plan can be modified to suit the needs of the owner, and the other specifications are provided below.
