Renu builds Affordable Homes, Small Little Houses, Tiny Homes and Cottages to support our Public Charity and put our students to work. We started this nearly a decade ago before the small house movement heated up. That's because so many people need a good affordable place to live. Using affordable housing solutions as our platform, Renu Foundation focuses on providing second chances and job training assistance to ex-cons, returning veterans and other struggling individuals.  We seek to use recycled and sustainable materials to create affordable living solutions because that's what many of our own participants need, and in fact so does a growing segment of society.  And by partnering with other outreach programs to connect those affected by natural disasters with temporary or alternative housing, those we help are given the opportunity to help others who have lost their homes.

Small Little Houses - Small Tiny Houses - Floor Plans

We build real small houses, small houses, and even small tiny houses. We also build large homes.  Here are a few tiny house plans and small houses built from CUBITS and steel containers. Using Containers for housing is a great way to get a home you can move and that is harder to burn in a fire. Small little houses uses less resources to build and less energy to heat and cool. A small house also costs less to own and maintain.

Backyard CUBITS

At just 96 sq ft, a single CUBIT can serve as a Backyard Home Office, a fully functioning Tiny House/Guest Room, a Personal Retreat, or Storage Shed and more!

This CUBIT comes complete ready for a person to live comfortably. Prices start at just $22,500 FOB our shop in Texas. It sits on two I beams so it does not require a foundation.

Trailer Units

CUBITS can be constructed on a trailer and assigned a VIN to create an RV option for mobile temporary housing assistance or tiny home living.  Extend a cube to create added space for a porch, larger living, storage or custom solution.   (Trailer package optional)
