The for-rent concept home comprises two units: a 2,007-square-foot townhome and a 660-square-foot full studio accessory dwelling unit (ADU).

The Picket Fence presents a dynamic and efficient three-story floor plan tailored for the active millennial seeking a modern and sustainable living space. This new concept home was built using volumetric modular construction and includes two separate units: a 2,007-square-foot townhome and a 660-square-foot full studio accessory dwelling unit (ADU). The ground floor hosts the studio ADU, complete with its own entry porch, creating a welcoming arrival experience while promoting a sense of community engagement.

The primary bedroom, more than just a sleeping area, includes a multifunctional lounge space. The Picket Fence smartly allocates square footage where it counts, allowing for an attainable monthly cost and an efficient structure suitable for modular construction.
