Thank You Active Rain For Indulging My Blunder In Yesterday's Zoomeet!

What a raucous but absolute blast and such a great way to start the New Year. Finally after a dozen plus years of communicating through our words and pics a real opportunity to get to know some of the personalities on Active Rain.

I love the whole concept of virtual confab. Especially given our present circumstances. Up close and personal eyeball to eyeball is always preferable, however we must take what we can get during these unprecedented times. 

Thank you all for indulging me yesterday. It was a real honor and an absolute blast and I look forward to attending and participating in many more of these opportunities.

I'm more than happy to answer any/all questions anyone may have about the BACKYARD HOME biz. I will be posting regularly on my blog with updates, articles, ideas, videos of installations, legislation and always welcome your participation and contributions.

I also welcome the advice and opinions from any/all experts in any field i.e. lending, appraising, RE investing, development, home inspections, design, building and furnishing.  And lest we forget one of the most important topics of all, property management responsibilities for future landlords. 

There's literally mountains of information on this subject and it's just a grain of sand on the beach of which there is no end in sight. So I've just launched a new group and I invite anyone seeking in depth information and knowledge on this subject to join "ADU 4 U?"

Have a wonderful year everyone!

From all that I have heard about the zoom meeting, you did a tremendous job!  When we had lunch together, I really enjoyed learning about ADU's and was wishing that I could do them in Arizona since there really is a need for such a thing.

Hi Carol Williams If there's anyway I can get a list of the attendees for yesterday's ZOOM meeting I'd be happy to send everyone an invite to my ADU 4U group that I just launched yesterday.


Thanks, John

Hi John DL Arendsen

Thank you, John, for the great information on Tuesday. As for technology snafus... stuff happens... and when it comes to technology I've long said "you can't live with it and you can't live without it."

John, you always provide excellent information about ADAs.  I wish I had been available for your Zoom session.  I'm sure it was very valuable.

Wow! Thanks George Souto Looking forward to future opportunities. It was a lot of fun. Now that I know how low key and casual it is I'll be a lot more comfortable with my delivery. LOL!

Thanks Kathy Streib BTW, if there's any subject in particular that folks would like to know about please feel free to share. I will also be posting regularly on my ADU 4 U GROUP page and zeroing in on many of the nuances and idiosyncrasies of this rapidly unraveling industry.

As I've said many times Jeff Dowler, CRS had it not been for you walking in to Surfer's Point Resort that day I wouldn't be here today. BTW, if you ever want to come by and check out our model and some of our other past projects and even ones we're working on now I'd love for you to join us. I have one going in in around the 15th in San Diego if you're available.

I'll be zooming in as long as or until the crowd tires of the subject Anna Banana Kruchten CRS CRB, Phoenix Broker But I'm still waiting for you to ZOOM in to Carlsbad airport one of these days for that factory tour and a look see at some of our projects. You can even stay at our beach casita during your stay (Photo).

Got that right Doug Dawes. As John Naisbett, author of "MEGATRENDS", from the '70's, it's all about "Hi Tech Hi Touch" But it was a lot of fun and a great way to finally put a human element to into it with all the folks I actually got to meet.

I've been hearing the drums beating in the distance about Arizons Brian England It's only a matter of time. Love to see you again sometime. Let me know when you're back in town and I'll do the same when I'm out your way. Janis and I just spend 3 wonderful days in Flagg. One of our faves. Our youngest son went to college there.

John DL Arendsen I will actually be in Oceanside from January 24-29 and I will definitely reach out to you.  I had planned on getting together with Jeff Dowler, CRS already so perhaps we can all meet somewhere.  I have heard that California is on lockdown though, so I don't know how it can work, but I will leave it up to you and Jeff.

We sell quite a few homes with ADUs, but not in urban areas too much. Wish we could have attended. It sounds like everyone had a great time - and learned a lot too.

Joh I found it so interesting and the little things just makes it the more interesting. I built tiny homes here for a while so I was glad I chose to listen in.

Thanks Charles Stallions Tiny Homes and Park Models are making there way in San Diego as well nowadays. Seems like the State is pulling out all the stops when it comes to ADU's.

You'd never know there was a COVID thing going on in Cali Brian England I think just about everything is open when it's supposed to be closed. No worries we'll find a place and I'd love to meet up with you and Jeff Dowler, CRS when you're in town.
