Kennesaw native Chet Tischer began his career in real estate at the age of 14!  It started with Chet cutting a homebuilder neighbor's lawn.  From there, he began doing odd jobs for the builder, and he never really stopped building homes.

After 25 years as a homebuilder, Chet, like many others found himself having to reinvent his business as the market for new homes evaporated a few years ago.  One day he was sitting around with his wife ruminating about the necessity of adding space to accommodate an aging parent.  Chet was already aware of the growing need for multi-generational living spaces.  Skeptical, at first, Chet set about creating the most complex senior living space he could imagine.  After many iterations, he has created a patented, modular, affordable and accessible living space for seniors or disabled adults that can be installed in a few hours inside a garage, or attached to any existing exterior doorway of your home.  These spaces come furnished with electrical and water hook-ups, heating, air conditioning and even high tech medical monitoring devices. Chet's brainchild is being made available through his company,  BonusRuum.

Check out this fascinating interview, and look for an on-site broadcast some time in April, when BonusRuum will open up a warehouse in Marietta that will have a model room available for touring!  In the mean time, if you are interested in more information, check out their website at, or call their offices at (770) 480-5676.
