shuttered shelter - dadu
A recent City of Seattle ordinance allows for Detached Accessory Dwelling Units (D.A.D.U.) on most city lots. This design allows for numerous configurations for your backyard cottage, while incorporating sustainable building practices. Please contact us if you are interested in building this plan or another backyard cottage. The new building can be used for a studio, mother-in-law apartment, or rental unit providing you with additional income. The cost of a DADU can be minimal, allowing you to recoup the cost (if rented) in as few as 5 years, making it a great income source!
