Backyard ADU in N.E. Portland

A simple backyard turns into a small two bedroom dwelling unit

We transformed this underused patch of grass into a highly functional 2-bedroom backyard ADU in Portland.  We incorporated elevated awning windows and strategically positioned bedroom windows not only provided ample natural light, but also created a distinct separation between the ADU and the main house.  This ensured a sense of privacy for this accessory dwelling unit.
