Tiny Home, Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU)
This detached accessory dwelling unit adds a second freestanding home onto an R5 zoned property in Portland, OR. Houses like this are also known as mother in law units or as a "tiny home".
Built from the ground up where there was a simple lawn, the entire structure was designed by Indifab owner Peter. City rules about size and style can be difficult to navigate as they are ever changing. Hiring a contractor with experience in these fields will save a lot of headache as you go through design review.
Details make this 700 square foot home special - from the flush, modern trim to the cable railing. A vaulted ceiling with a couple dozen windows makes it feel large while being compact. There's even room for laundry. Passive energy features and a high insulation rating make this home comfortable and efficient.
