The Rio

Award Winning Design

Seattle Pre-approved Designs

Carriage Houses NW obtained an exclusive agreement with esteemed architect Pedro Castro to build backyard cottages and tiny houses on wheels. Castro’s 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. His designs are recognized for their:

  • Low cost options
  • Green building + design concepts
  • Constructability
  • Privacy + Context

In addition to the detached accessory dwelling unit, we have collaborated to design and build The Rio, the tiny house on wheels travel trailer featured above, exclusively for Carriage Houses NW. Review these unique designs and floor plans in the slides to the right. We’d love to build one of these amazing homes for you. Let’s get started.
