This new backyard cottage (DADU – Detached Accessory Dwelling Unit) is recently completed. It is 800 square feet with two bedrooms and 1-1/2 baths on the lower level; the kitchen, eating and living areas are on the main floor with a space-enhancing cathedral ceiling, good south light along with amazing views including Mt Rainier! There’s dedicated parking and screen-wall fencing to ensure a privacy between the main house and the DADU.
DADU’s are on the rise as a means of providing additional housing in our increasingly crowded city. Besides the special zoning rules for DADU’s, the Seattle City Council is about to approve legislation to both encourage and ease the permitting of such structures.
