Looking to add extra space to your property without breaking the bank? Consider adding an Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) like the Connect 1 from Connect Homes. With its elegant one-bedroom, one-bath footprint and a glassy, open-concept living, the Connect 1 is the perfect solution for those looking to add livable square footage to their property.

One of the great things about the Connect 1 is its versatility. Use the space as a future home for retired parents, a private guest house for friends and family, or a rental property to earn extra income. The floor-to-ceiling glass windows make this small structure feel much larger while maximizing your connection to the outdoors.

With a floor area of 460 square feet, the Connect 1 is compact yet functional. It has an overall dimension of 40' x 11.5', one bedroom, one bathroom, and one story. And despite its small size, the open-concept living area gives the space an airy and spacious feel.

Here is the estimated budget breakdown:

- Design: $20,000
- Production: $195,000
- Installation: $34,000
- Sales Tax: $6,800
- Estimated Connect Homes Total: $255,800

This is a fraction of the cost of building a traditional addition, making it an excellent option for those who want to add livable square footage to their property without breaking the bank. And the benefits don't stop there.

The Connect 1 is a modern and energy-efficient structure. Connect Homes uses green materials and a low-waste construction process to make each unit environmentally friendly. The ADU is also designed for superior energy efficiency, with a "Cool Roof" system that reflects up to 90% of incident heat, R-21 insulation levels in the exterior walls (above code requirements), and low-E glass windows and doors.

The steel-framed modules are permanently attached to a reinforced concrete system of stem walls and piers. This foundation system ensures the ADU is structurally sound and allows utilities to run through the crawl space beneath the home, making them easy to access and maintain.

Also by Connect Homes is the Connect 2 (640 sq ft), and the Connect 3 (960 sq ft) and the Connect 4 (1,280 sq ft).

If the typical foundation system won't work on your site, Connect Homes can design a custom foundation system that meets your needs. However, perimeter stem walls must be part of the foundation design to accommodate the crawl space and utility access.

In addition to the Connect 1, Connect Homes offer 14 other models to fit different lots, lifestyles, and budgets. So whether you're looking to add livable square footage to your property or you're in the market for a full-time residence, Connect Homes have a solution for you.

In conclusion, if you're looking to add livable square footage to your property in a cost-effective and environmentally friendly way, an Accessory Dwelling Unit like the Connect 1 from Connect Homes is an excellent option. Its compact yet functional design, energy-efficient features, and affordability make it a smart choice for anyone looking to expand their living space.
