Efficiently Convert Garages into Affordable Housing

Rebecca Moller was inspired by the idea of a scalable solution for one of the largest issues facing the nation – affordable workforce housing. She saw a critical need that could not be addressed through traditional means and decided to pivot her real estate career to address the workforce housing shortage, starting in the state of California.

Specifically, her passion is to provide the ability by which working-class families and essential workers have the opportunity to live in the communities they serve, as well as provide an added income to homeowners.

We designed our patent pending prefabricated modular State approved Conversion ADU to fill the need for homeowners’ added income, workforce housing, multigenerational living, and simplified aging in place by making it simple, convenient, and affordable for homeowners in the Bay Area to convert their existing underutilized space into high-quality housing. We’ve done all the hard work – our unit complies with all applicable state and local codes, is delivered fully fabricated, and installed in less than 4 weeks.

SYMBIHOM LLC (the “Company”) is on a mission to increase workforce rental housing, and homeowner’s income, facilitate aging in place and provide multi-generational living at low cost.


The Problem

The population of the San Francisco Bay Area has increased by more than 1.5 million people since 1990. On average, the Bay Area has added 2 jobs to the economy for every available housing unit.


The Solution

Transform garages and increase workforce housing, homeowner income, multifamily living, and aging in place with income.

Each SYMBIHOM ADU provides +/- 500 sf of living space, and is installed with a pre-approved permit to fit right inside the garage. Each unit takes two days to prep and just two weeks to install and can provide:

  • Additional income to homeowners
  • Workforce housing
  • Multi-generational living or
  • An aging in place with income solution
