The Basics

What is Kasita?

Is Kasita for me?

Kasita is for everyone with aspirations to get more out of a small space, including individuals, developers, and governments. Our product can be used in many ways, including backyard apartments, multi-family apartments, condos, hotels, student housing, workforce housing, senior housing and anything else you might imagine. The possibilities are endless. “

What types of products do you sell?

At this time we have two product offerings: a standalone Accessory Dwelling Unit (commonly referred to as an ADU) and a modular, stackable, high-density product for developers, institutions, governments and anyone who wants to place multiple Kasitas in tight urban spaces. Units in both product offerings are 352 square feet.

Each state has unique building code and permitting requirements, and we’re committed to ensuring that Kasita meets each states requirements as part of the rollout plan.

Can I rent a Kasita?

Right now Kasitas are only available for purchase, but as we expand we’ll add the opportunity to rent.

Can I tour a Kasita?

Yes, please click here to schedule a tour of our model unit in Austin, Texas. If you don’t want to wait, you can also take a 360 degree virtual tour.

Is this a tiny house or a container house?

No. Kasita is a completely reimagined home with industrial design at its core. There’s nothing quite like it out there. The Kasita does not contain a loft, Murphy bed, pitched roof or wheels. It’s designed from the ground up with a custom steel frame, taking every cubic inch into account.

Where’s the bed? Does it even have a toilet?

We designed the Kasita to not only feel spacious and full of light, but to be fully equipped with all the amenities you would find in a traditional home or apartment—and then some. In addition to a walk-in shower, refrigerator, and convection oven, washer/dryer combo, and cooktop, the Kasita comes with a queen size bed that easily tucks out of sight (without even having to make it).

How big is a Kasita?

Kasitas are 352 sq. ft.

Can I get a different floor plan?

As Kasita grows we have every intention of building larger units and designing with families in mind. For now we’re starting with our initial studio design.

What about ADA?

Kasita is currently finalizing design of an ADA floor plan engineered to ADA regulations. Kasita ADA units have the same footprint as the other units so they can fit wherever a customer desires to place them, whether it be a single unit or a series of ADA units within a stackable structure. We’re happy to serve anyone wanting to live a bigger life in a smaller space.

Kasitas are pre-fabricated and then transported to the site on a truck and trailer. Once they are installed they are considered permanent, although like other stackable modular structures they can be disassembled if needed. Kasitas are classified as permanent structures and are built to the International Building Code standards.

Zoning

Does Kasita meet the zoning of my property?

“For our single unit product, if the zoning on the property allows for an accessory dwelling unit (ADU), Kasita should fit (subject to other regulations that may be in place such as architectural control committees, etc.). For stackable units, Kasita is compliant if the zoning of the property allows for multi-family or mixed use development. However zoning can vary by location and we recommend consulting with a land use attorney or civil engineer to confirm. We encourage you to contact our sales team to discuss your property if you’re unsure and need some guidance. “

Does Kasita meet my local city building code?

Kasita units are classified as modular permanent homes, which are built to International Building Code standards and permitted at the state level. Kasita handles the permitting of units in each US state and coordinates with you to ensure a smooth process with your local cities permitting departments.
