This backyard home office started as a dilapidated detached garage and carport! It includes a small addition in front of the carport, a roof tear-off and re-framing above the existing foundation. A taller roof over the garage portion allows for additional storage. The adjacent space (formerly a carport) could be used for a home office, workshop or craft area. The interior includes durable and economical materials that work for many different uses. Careful placement of windows and skylights allow for ample natural light while maintaining flexibility. The design goals for this project are to create two highly efficient spaces from an existing structure while also working within a modest budget. This design is an alternative to our Seattle Modern DADU.
