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.

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.

Yes, some have been listed and recently sold, and we talk about that in this article.

As you walk down the boardwalk where there are many other houseboats you’ll find this brightly colored floating studio. Through the front door, you will see there are lots of windows all around to bring in natural sunlight into the large spacious living room. The kitchen is off to your right side with plenty of cabinets for storage, a small oven, and mini-refrigerator. There’s also a fold-down table for dining. This is a great space-saving idea for small houses. Beyond the living area is the open bedroom and I believe the bathroom is off to the left, however not pictured here.
