Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU and DADU) are an opportunity to create an income-generating rental on your property, a guest house for short or long term visitors and family, or an office or studio space for your business or craft. Here are some resources for anyone contemplating an ADU project.
A feasibility study is for clients interested in purchasing property to build a custom home but want assurance that they will be able to build what they intend to prior to closing the land deal.
Whether you live in a pre-war craftsman or a modern apartment, finding reasonably priced, attractive lighting options has always been a challenge. That’s precisely why we set out to design and assemble the Brass Lamp, a simple bedside or bathroom wall fixture that is timeless, easy to assemble and costs under $50 in parts.
WC STUDIO participated in the “10 x 10” re:Tacoma urban lecture series. The series focuses on design issues relevant to Tacoma’s urban neighborhoods and downtown core. The goal is to gather and share.

Last weekend I met up with my good friend Corey from Portland to explore some of the gravel backroads of the Gifford Pinchot. The drive from Tacoma was a little over 2 hours and from Portland was very close to the same. We planned to meet at the North Fork Campground just southeast of Randle, Washington on the Cispus River. We had reserved a camping spot months earlier and we were excited to get off the pavement and out of the city for a few days for whiskey drinking, gravel riding, car-camping and all around good times.
Shou Sugi Ban is the Japanese method of protecting wood against fire, wind, rain, rot and insects by…setting it on fire. WC STUDIO is always looking for interesting methods to use recycled materials and Shou-Sugi-Ban seemed like a good option for a fence project we had going on at the Chicago 3-Flat Renovation.
“It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them.”
Over the holidays two Seattle friends invited us to ride the Green River trail with them. We finished the last drops of our espresso at Sodo’s Macrina Bakery and cycled south along Airport Way passing Boeing Field. We had no idea of the rich and layered history of the region...
We went to Tucson for a week of winter cycling and to escape the cold Chicago weather. It was our first time riding in Tucson and the first day we headed for the famous Mt. Lemmon, 26 miles of “Up”.
We started keeping hens in the Spring of 2011. We have two Aracaunas, two Silver Laced Wyandottes and one Australorp. We picked up baby chicks from Belmont Feed and Seed in Chicago and rode home with the box on our bikes. Keeping chickens for eggs in Chicago is legal; however, raising them for meat is not.
