“But Rob Gibbs is responsible for more homes built in Santa Fe in the past 25 years than any other single person. Now, he is adding another line to his repertoire and wants to put a little casita in your backyard.” …

“That apparently isn’t enough to keep Gibbs busy, so he started Arete Dwelling Units with Realtor Peter Ferrara. They offer eight models starting at 260 square feet going up to 1,050 square feet. Gibbs reports the impetus came from fielding requests over the years for just such a product line.

He acknowledges that while demand for accessory dwelling units is strong in Santa Fe, logistics are not easy. A tiny house has all the elements, meaning trades and materials, of a full-sized house and still needs the same supervision of subcontractors required for a regular house. But after nearly 30 years of negotiating the peculiarities and quirks of Santa Fe homebuilding, nobody is better suited to pull this off than Gibbs.”
