From Carriage House to Backyard Cottage

We’re pretty passionate here about the potential for Accessory Dwelling Units in Portland.

Whether you call them backyard cottages, granny flats, mother-in-law apartments, or even tiny houses, ADUs can bring all sorts of livability, economic development, and environmental benefits.

Dwell just featured a cool carriage house conversion in Oakland that warrants a look-see.  Lesson?  You can do a lot with a little.
