When it comes to housing, why pay for more than you need?

The dream of having a four bedroom house with a white picket fence and a two car garage is out-dated for first-time homebuyers and expensive for the working class. Module reimagines the way you live by designing urban incremental housing to suit the needs of 21st century American Dreamers. Sign up to stay in-the-know.

The Problem

Cost of living is skyrocketing in many major cities — not just SF & NYC. Many people want to be in and around cities, but rising rents price them out of where they want to be. Owning a home protects people from volatile rent while gaining equity over the long-run. Unfortunately, the current housing stock is often too expensive or doesn’t suit 21st century needs, making the benefits of ownership out of reach.

Our Solution

We design smart, affordable housing for urbanites. Our first product is a house designed to grow with your family. Our modular design and patent pending structural system makes it easy to convert a one bedroom starter unit into a 3 bedroom house over time. You won’t need a giant mortgage, and you won’t outgrow your house. Our prefabricated additions save time, headache, and limit the disruption typically associated with renovations.
