Literally, where any other house could be located. Our system of modules is coupled to a permanent fixture to become your new residence, visually and in a legal perspective. The only difference between a conventional house and a Casita Home is our high standard of luxury and convenience!
• IF IT'S CONSIDERED PERMANENT DOES THAT MEAN I CAN'T MOVE IT?
