Backyard Homes aka Backyard Cottage, Granny Flat, Granny Units, In-Law Unit, Accessory Dwelling
A Pacific Modern Homes "Backyard Home" (Granny Flat) is a self-contained living unit usually located on the grounds of an existing home. It is sometimes called a Granny Flat because it is a popular way for families to accommodate aging parents. Your Backyard Home is also ideal for a private extension of the main residence; young adult family members, Nannies, Care-Givers, guest housing, private retreat, in-home office or rental income.
With multigenerational housing becoming more popular, a "Backyard Home" (Granny Flats) provides a mutually beneficial alternative. Privacy and independent living can be experienced in a separate living area while sharing the same property and resources. With the addition of a permanent "Backyard Home" the property value can increase.
In addition to providing a private living space, the "Backyard Home" offers many other advantages. Transportation, child care, grounds maintenance, gardening and other property tasks can be shared. When it comes to keeping an eye on our aging population, the Backyard Home offers a solution that is both affordable and beneficial for families.
Pacific Modern Homes provides the steps and resources needed for the Owner-Builder to select, plan for and prepare for construction of a Backyard Home.
The "Maywood" is one of Pacific Modern Homes exclusive designs within the "Transitional Home Envi-ronment" (T.H.E.) series. These homes meet the growing needs for older adults with features that can be adapted and modified for aging- in-place. If you're interested Pacific Modern Homes can make these changes to any of our plans. Depending up the specific plan there may be additional charges to make these changes.

To help make these new technology advancements more readily adaptable, each T.H.E. Certified Home Plan has a Structural Wiring Hub design, which is the backbone of a Home Automation system.
Special attention has been given to functionality at all ages and stages of life. For example, T.H.E. Certified Home Plans are designed with step-less entries, wider doorways and hallways. This greatly enhances your home’s functionality for baby strollers and wheel chairs. T.H.E. Certified Home Plans take this one step further. By designing structural backing in hallways and bathrooms, potential future handrails can be installed for minimal cost. T.H.E. Certified Home Plans also provide ample storage as well as a design option for the furnace filter to be located low on a hallway wall so it doesn’t require a ladder to change. These are just a few of the accessibility features included in your T.H.E. Certified Home Plans.
