Goal: The property owner wanted to build a new one bedroom ADU in their backyard.

Design Challenge: The homeowners wanted to have a large ADU but were working with a limited budget.


Process and Solution: The customer chose to build a new 850 square foot ADU in their rear yard. The final ADU included one bedroom, a separate living area, a dining room, a full kitchen, a bathroom with a full size bathtub, and a separate laundry room adjacent to the bathroom with a standing washer-dryer set.

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