SLIMBY is an innovative housing solution that connects homeowners and tenants putting rentable prefabs on underutilised land

How it Works


A homeowner - the Host -  leases out available land in their backyard

We install a SLIMBY - a compact contemporary prefab - on the land

A tenant - the Resident -  rents the SLIMBY at market rate

Our online platform manages the whole process end-to-end

Tackling two of the housing industry's biggest challenges – time and cost



  • Offsite construction saves time by constructing a prefabricated building in a factory without weather delays.
  • Time on site is reduced significantly as the near-finished house is delivered to site and completed in minimal time.
  • A SLIMBY can be put on site, and be ready to be rented, much quicker than a traditional development.


  • The cost of land is a significant proportion of the rental equation and the lease arrangement with a homeowner reduces this to a manageable cost.
  • Factory conditions allow for greater accuracy and less waste.
