Accessory Dwelling Units:
Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU's) are small but otherwise complete dwelling units allowed in Portland and a growing number of other municipalities. They can be free-standing structures, additions to homes, or within existing garages or basements. ADU's are attractive to homeowners for many reasons including: Passive income, offsetting expensive housing, housing for family members and friends, or as flexible added space that can also serve as a home-office, rental, or guest house.
Due to their limited size, Portland's SDC fee waivers, and the lack of property costs; ADU's provide a great opportunity to create housing that is much more affordable than simply building a new home.
Asmund has experience with all aspects of creating different types of ADU's, and recently developed, designed, and built his own backyard ADU (currently available for rent on AirBnb).
