Lake Forest Park DADU

Located north of Seattle in Lake Forest Park, this small DADU (Detached Accessory Dwelling Unit) is nestled in the wooded backyard of an existing single-family residence. A perfect retreat for visiting guests, the “garden cottage” can also serve as a peaceful space for remote working or can open up as auxiliary space for backyard parties! Only 675sf total, the upper floor includes a sleeping area, small seating area and a bathroom. A kitchenette and wardrobe closets wrap two sides of the bathroom, creating a colorful focal point within the space. The lower level includes a mechanical/storage space and a flex room that can double as a den or home office. The light and airy interior palette is paired with a darker exterior, with materials carefully chosen for their low-maintenance and extended durability. Lunawood siding will wrap the upper floor, graying out gracefully over time and is complimented by a metal roof, painted cement board and clad windows and doors.  The DADU was carefully sited to mitigate impacts to adjacent mature trees while also providing easy access from the main house and preserving privacy for both structures.

Construction is slated to start in mid-2024!
