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 deck and garden. 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's Status of Seattle backyard cottages 2017, AARP's Livable Communities Magazine WHERE WE LIVE 2018 (a Hermes Creative Award Winner) and AARP's ABCs of ADUs 2019. Go to
