Throughout the month of January, we’ve continued to work on several different projects, including the Orting Veterans Village, a home remodel that includes a DADU built on-site in the backyard, and 2 additional backyard cottages – one DADU and one custom-model designed by an architect (see photos below).
Carriage Houses NW obtained an exclusive agreement with esteemed architectural firm Magellan Architects to build backyard cottages and tiny houses. Magellan is a Bellevue-based firm whose MADADU design was a winner in the City of Seattle’s DADU design contest. As a result of the win, that floor plan is pre-approved by the city, which results in a quicker permitting process.
If you are a City of Seattle resident, check out this website – ADUniverse. It contains lots of great information about backyard cottages, which are known legally as Detatched Accessory Dwelling Units or DADUs. There are 10 pre-approved cottage designs which can be fast-tracked for approval and construction.
CHNW just began building the floors for the last five tiny homes for the Orting Veterans Village (Check out this great time-lapse video that one of our employees, Daniel, took of him and another employee, Blake, working on the floors). We are also in the process of completing a few more of the tiny homes. On-site, Buchanan General Contracting Company has been working on finishing out the inside of the Community Building. A walking path is being laid that will connect the homes and the community building together, and landscaping is being done. It takes a village to build a village! Everything is coming together and the power will be on soon. Stay tuned for more updates!
