Elements & FLe[X] Builds.
The California Element line is based on simplicity and adaptability. The Element FLeX template is configurable into multiple sizes with options to suit many project types. All Elements start as a blank slate, with no interior walls. This line is perfect for small offices, bonus-rooms, add-on living spaces, fleet housing projects, or simple tiny house communities. Multi-unit order discounts and expedited build-times are available. Bathrooms (with shower or vanity) and kitchens can be added in the build request order form.
