West Seattle Backyard Cottage
800sf backyard cottage for a homeowner to age-in-place with rental income of the primary house. A two story main living space opens to a Southwest deck. Hydronic heated concrete floors, on-demand hot water, HRV and remote window shading are efforts in sustainability. The owner worked on interior finishes & landscaping.
The project is included in SIGHTLINE INSTITUTE 2017 article on status of Seattle backyard cottages, AARP's Livable Communities Magazine WHERE WE LIVE 2018 and Portland's ACCESSORYDWELLINGS.ORG.
