How is it July already? This year is flying by! So far this July, like the rest of the PNW, we’ve survived a historic heat dome, enjoyed the 4th of July with our families, and are now back to daily life and working hard. A few of our recent projects are wrapping up: the remodel for the cabin in the woods and the 34′ DADU outside our shop. We’re excited to be working on a variety of cool projects, and would love to chat with you if you have any ideas for a project as well!

DADU Updates

This 34′ Detached Accessory Dwelling Unit we’ve been building is looking great and the interior is starting to take on its own personality. The natural light flowing in nicely accents the kitchen and bedroom areas. It feels bright and spacious and we can’t wait to finish it so the owners can start enjoying their new space!

Special features:
-Bar seating kitchen island
-Full appliance package (including mini-split heat pump for the next heat dome)
-Butcher block countertops
-Full-width bifold doors to bedroom (pictures to follow in next newsletter)

Here are a few progress photos:
