Project Story: In this urban neighborhood of mostly 50×100 lots originally developed in the 1930’s the typical pattern include a detached garage.  These modest structures can be readily converted into comfortable and compatible Accessory Dwellings. This ADU serves as residence for a family member recuperating from health setbacks.  The simple exterior and interior detailing adds charm and character to the compact and inviting backyard, inviting frequent family ‘get togethers’ while also providing for privacy and comfort.
