The future of affordable housing

By Hawaii Renovation Posted in: RemodelRenovating

Everyone in Hawaii knows the problem of finding affordable housing here. With even entry-level apartments costing about $450,000 a piece to build that leaves many people unable to afford even basic rents of $1,000 to $1,500 a month.

That leaves about 7,000 folks whose only place to sleep is in the street. What’s the solution?

Tiny houses to the rescue! ThePerfectSpace™ is a modular, prefabricated home that can be assembled in a few days by just a few workers. It is made to last 50 years or more with simple maintenance. It’s 100 percent waterproof, rustproof, termite proof and mold proof when properly assembled. It has everything you need.

The size of these micro units varies from 120 to 240 square feet — depending on if you choose the one or two story size. The prices range from $12,850 to around $25,000 if you want a kitchen, bathroom, balcony or dormer.

What’s the catch? Right now these are being designed for use in areas that will currently allow for them: homeless villages, emergency housing, Hawaiian home-lands, and so on.

However, The PerfectSpace is working with local building authorities to hopefully make them acceptable as legal ADUs (accessory dwelling units) in Hawaii. They are working to get approvals and hope to have some good news in the near future.

If you would like to have a personal tour of these revolutionary homes before they hit the market please call the Cool Roof Store at 591-1900 to make an appointment to see them — or go to the BIA Home Show from Friday, Jan. 24 to Sunday Jan. 26 to see the exciting two-story model.
