In September 2002, California Assembly Bill AB 1866 was passed, which requires local agencies to permit second dwelling units in residential zones without discretionary action. The purpose of the law is to increase California’s supply of affordable housing in response to a perceived housing crisis in many areas of the state.
Silvercrest has developed several choices of alternative floor plans specifically for this purpose. Silvercrest’s Backyard Homes are built to meet or exceed HUD Building Codes and local foundation requirements. All floor plans comply with Energy Star requirements and meet the maximum (Zone 4) seismic regulations.
Skyline and Hallmark also offer floor plans that provide reasonably-priced alternatives to Silvercrest’s Backyard Home. All factories provide options for exterior elevation, siding, and roofing materials to match your existing home. A variety of interior decor selections are available, including cabinetry, countertop, and floor covering. All of these manufactured homes are delivered to your site and installed on permanent foundations by authorized contractors.
