Laurelhurst DADU Cottage in Seattle, WA


This is the Laurelhurst DADU in Seattle, Washington by MicrohouseNW, they specialize in backyard cottages. This one is a 575-square-foot home with a 390-square-foot footprint. The cabin even features a living/green roof, exposed trusses, and interestingly enough, the bedroom is downstairs. Opposite of a loft, hehe.

DADU stands for Detached Accessory Dwelling Unit, which is basically just another term for a detached guest house. These guest houses are one way to design and build small homes while still meeting local building codes. And in Seattle, people are even creating their own homeowners associations (HOAs) and selling their backyard cottages to others. Yes, some have been listed and recently sold, and we talk about that in this article.

    Nice… BUT… I certainly wouldn’t want to go down the the bedroom on that glorified ladder. Proper stairs and it’d be a goer from my perspective.

      Sure, trade off is just eliminating the hallway, both below and above, and having to walk through the bathroom to access the stairs… Since this has to follow local building code for the stairs…

    Its a very nice place. I can see going in on the top or bottom. I see room for a fold out couch upstairs. You could always put the office downstairs with a fold out bed. And use the upstairs with a daybed/couch. True steps are better, but it does have good handrails, Like a ships ladder.
