Modular Home Company, Dwellito, is now Delivering Mini Office Spaces to your Door
Having trouble working from home? You can now get a modular home office from Dwellito delivered to your door.
Tiny and modular homes have been a growing trend over the last few years. Their compact design and size make them more affordable for people who wish to be home owners, but can’t take on the investment of a mortgage.
Modular home company Dwellito, has now adapted their business model to create prefabricated office spaces that can be delivered to your home in under 8 weeks. When Caleb Barclay first founded Dwellito, it was to standardize the process of buying prefabricated homes. While searching for a guest home addition to his property, Barclay found that consumers could not compare models or get all-in-budget quotes online making the process difficult and time consuming.
“Our goal is to disrupt the existing paradigm of home buying, and our vision is to make it more akin to buying a car in terms of the extent you can customize it, how it’s fabricated, the innovative use of technology, and moving away from the outdated cost per square foot model,” says Barclay.
Enter Dwellito, the company now hosts and facilitates the buying of model homes across North America, Europe and Australia, with complete pricing and the option to compare various models. Focused on providing quality and functionality, Barclay says the focus is providing homes at a lower price.
“The real value that modular homes are providing buyers is the ability to customize their new property to their exact specifications for a fraction of the cost,” says Barclay, “You won’t be paying for an architect or for months of material analysis and engineering; because modular homes are designed as a system, it’s easy to configure it without huge extra costs finding their way into the project.”
When the novel coronavirus forced thousands of people to retreat to their homes and practise social distancing overnight, Dwellito pivoted their business and resources to create modular office spaces. Professionals and creatives who have the task of rebuilding workflow environments into their homes, now have the option for that needed space to be delivered. For the Dwellito team it seemed like the best way to help people manage navigating their new normal.
“With an unprecedented amount of people starting to work from home and needing a retreat for their work, it seemed like an obvious solution to a problem thousands upon thousands of people were dealing with…” says Barclay, “ it wasn’t just business people who needed a space for conference calls and business meetings; musicians and podcasters needed quiet space for their work.”
Dwellito’s office spaces are completely customizable and even give the option to include a workout space or entertainment console. Ranging from 64 to 112 square feet the mini offices cost anywhere from $8,200 to 17,650 USD. Once the new home office is designed to your liking, a virtual walk through will allow you to view the space as if you were in it. When purchased, the modular is put together within a few days and sent to you.
The current economic climate leaves a lot of variables up in the air. In preparation millions of people are looking for ways to boost, preserve and prolong income. Whether the home office stays a home office or is converted into a guest suit post pandemic, Barcley says the investment is what you make it.
“Modular homes present a way for you to turn your backyard into a money-making machine. As prefabrication costs continue to lower and more cities begin to allow ADUs [accessory dwelling units], homeowners in different economic circumstances can leverage backyard homes to subsidize a sizeable portion of their total mortgage,” says Barclay.
