Creating More Homes for More People …in More Places

At YardHomes, we seek to expand housing in Minnesota by adding a new housing option that is needed in our communities.

Small, compact, prefab dwellings can be added as Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) across 19 cities in the Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area, along with Northfield and Duluth. More cities are adding ADU ordinances to their zoning codes or expanding their existing codes each year.
