About Rent the Backyard

Rent the Backyard helps homeowners make money from their backyards by building housing. While new laws have made these accessory dwelling units (ADUs) a lot easier to permit, they’re still expensive and take a long time to build. By building our own Tesla-inspired housing factory, Rent the Backyard manufactures homes twice as fast as homes built "on-site" and helps lower the cost of housing.

Working at Rent the Backyard is an incredible opportunity to be an early hire at a well-funded, quickly growing startup that’s radically reducing the cost and environmental impact of housing.

Technology

Every home Rent the Backyard manufactures is built from 12 panels of a cutting-edge, incredibly green, building material called cross-laminated timber. With a focus on hyper-efficiency with software and robotic automation, each building is manufactured to almost 100% completion in the factory before being driven to the installation site where it’s craned into place.
