The bedroom has ample storage for long-term living. But it also makes a great recording studio, meditation den, or library.

Tech Specs

Yours
for a lifetime.

Backyard is made with cutting-edge materials and processes that aren’t readily available to local builders. It's built to last with a precision-engineered steel frame that’s resistant to mold, rot, and termites. There’s less worry and less maintenance, now and in the future.

Fresh air, all
the time.

Dust, pollen, wildfire smoke, and other pollutants litter the air, but don’t belong in our lungs. Backyard features an integrated, dual-process air purification system that both filters the air and zaps it with an ionizer three to four times every hour. That's a breath of fresh air.

A solar power
plant in your yard.

Backyard is fully electric and consumes less than half of the energy of an equivalently sized home. With the included solar array, it runs “net zero” by default and can even help you save on your monthly utility bill for your main home — all from clean solar energy generated right in your yard.¹

Getting Backyard is as easy as it gets.
We take care of everything: filing permits, site preparation, and every other part of the install process.
