Can backyard homes provide income & housing?
A year after Salt Lake City allowed owners to put tiny homes in their backyards, Colin Jube and Dallin Jolley launched Modal Living, creating prefabricated housing that allows homeowners to erect small shelters within months.
Modal charges over $100K per unit, but they say owners are renting them for two to three thousand dollars per month.
They're also being used as in-law units and for kids home from college. Jolley says prefab housing has come a long way since the park model mobile home trend of the '50s and '60s.
