SEATTLE BACKYARD COTTAGE
A detached accessory dwelling unit (DADU) in the rear yard of a south Seattle home will provide an independent residence for our clients’ boomerang children.
Backyard cottages in Seattle are limited to 800 square feet, so it was important to create an efficient layout where every square inch counts. Near the entry, built-in storage provides a place for shoes and coats with deep storage tucked below the stairs. The kitchen was designed with a large pantry, eat-at island, and space-saving appliances.
The reverse floor plan locates two bedrooms and a bathroom on the ground level so that the open living area above may benefit from vaulted ceilings that follow the slope of the roof. Natural light from large windows and a skylight floods the interior. A Juliet balcony positioned to observe arriving and departing planes from nearby Boeing Field was requested by our aerophile clients.
