West Seattle Backyard Cottage
800sf backyard cottage for a homeowner to age-in-place by allowing additional rental income of the primary house. A two story main living space opens to a Soutwest patio & garden. Hydronic heat concrete floors, on-demand hot water, HRV and remote window shading are efforts in sustainability. The owner worked on interior finishes & landscaping.
It is included in SIGHTLINE INSTITUTE 2017 article on status of Seattle backyard cottages, AARP's Livable Communities Magazine WHERE WE LIVE, and was selected as part of a Case Study by Portland's Accessory Dwellings Organization.
