Goal: The property owner wanted to modify and expand an existing multifamily structure for a rental property to create a JADU while also constructing a new detached ADU.

Design Challenge: The property's existing structures and setbacks limited placement of the new ADU as well as the JADU.

Process and Solution: The property owner had a design concept that they wanted to work with and they opted to select an existing JADU and ADU design from the Housable library that closely matched their concept. To maximize the space on the property the owner elected to construct a new ADU and add a JADU to the existing dwelling. The final 341 square foot ADU included a studio with a kitchen/living/dining area and a bathroom with a bathtub. The 256 square foot JADU included a kitchen/living/dining area and a bathroom with a shower.

Unique Project Traits: This multifamily property was designed to maximize renter privacy and space.

Using this model as the starting point, this project was customized to the owner's preferences and the conditions of the property.
