Valerie and Walt wanted to add an accessory dwelling to their property. For the immediate future, they wanted it to be a comfortable, accessible home for Valerie’s mother. Thinking about the long term, they also wanted a place that could be used for rental income in the future.
A New Avenue partner architect designed a one-bedroom, one-bathroom accessory dwelling unit that would be functional and pleasant for an elder resident to live in. The design included an accessible shower, a bedroom with space to move around in, and an open kitchen/studio area. In addition to the ground-floor closets, a loft overhead provided storage space.
The design cost for this accessible one-bedroom ADU was $30,942.40. You can see the full design budget below.
