Where have I been hiding? I finally built my ADU= accessory dwelling unit. Or Granny Flat. Or Mother Inlaw Apartment. Or Sellwood Studio. Or my retirement home.
Now that it is completed, I will be sharing with you the process, the decision making, the pits, the falls and the finished product!
It started here last April 2013 getting the permit.
So The Before and After photos are fun. You know my love of garages but this old one could not be saved.
There were no footings, and half dry rotted out- so on to new construction.
This shows the Original Cottage in front- the scale fits the yard & the other home
Here is the architect Emily Refi. We met 3 years go when I wanted to start the project, she was pregnant and I was not ready so we reconnected a year later. Emily now works at Waterleaf Architecture and is very busy.
So what would you do with all your stuff packed in your garage?
Do you need it- do you park your car- is it a holding bin?
So glad to be back!
