Labor shortages, the rising cost of construction materials, supply chain issues, and long-term underinvestment have created an unprecedented demand for homes in the U.S. That’s why Bob Worsley, former Arizona State Senator, author, serial entrepreneur, and founder of SkyMall, teamed up with his friend, Stephen D. James, designer of eco-friendly, master planned communities such as Daybreak in Utah, to co-found ZenniHome..
Founded in 2020, ZenniHome brings viable solutions to the housing industry shortage by designing and factory building its models to be easily transported, to have a minimum environmental footprint, to stack in multi-family configurations, and to include leading edge technologies that transform the customer experience of buying, investing, owning, and living.
From financing and permitting to sustainable upgrades to re-configurations and additions – whether you are a first-time buyer, an ADU aficionado looking for a stand-alone unit, a real estate investor looking to generate additional rental income, or a developer/investor seeking to build a multi-family community, we’ve got you. Most home manufacturing companies are solely focused on the product – but for us it’s equally about the people who buy and build them, the seamless process from website to finished site, and the priority of the planet. (See our FAQ for more details.)
Of course, our flagship patented design units – Denizen and Citizen – are also in a league of their own. We specialize in transformative architecture and robotic furnishings that allow customers to get more living out of every square inch. ZenniHome builds smart, connected homes with environmentally prioritized features.
The ZenniHome Difference
After significant research to get the versatile building blocks designed perfectly, we patented the design! The basic engineering principles are:
- An open concept floor plan giving your ZenniHome maximum functionality and flexibility.
- Fully integrated high-tech robotic walls and furniture that transform your home to create just the space you need, when you need it.
- Our two models – Citizen and Denizen – are like LEGO™ blocks. They can be configured in limitless ways so you can build your perfect living arrangement.
Tailored to Your Style
All models come in a range of colors, finishes, and add-on options to let you personalize your new ZenniHome.
ZenniHome’s pricing, durability and energy efficiency let you spend less on a mortgage and utilities and more on a big life.
- We made the Tiny Home trend livable! ZenniHome is a 1950-sized home with robotics to make it feel three times bigger. Tiny Homes are a minimalist trend and use less material but are too small to be practical for many homeowners.
- ZenniHome modules are built with steel not wood. Designed for advanced manufacturing, every ZenniHome lends itself to the kind of advanced factory manufacturing used to make beautiful, strong, and resilient cars like Tesla™ – where a new car can be manufactured every 30 seconds. Steel is also stronger, less combustible, more recyclable, and can stack up to 7 stories.
