Oakland Accesory Dwelling Unit
This beautiful "Accessory Dwelling Unit" or ADU was a fantastic collaboration between local Architect, Carrie Shores of Inspired Independence, and HDR Remodeling.
This sun-filled tiny home features a thoughtfully designed layout with natural flow past a small front porch through the front sliding door and into a lovely living room with tall ceilings and lots of storage. The galley kitchen is designed to make efficient use of space while maintaining the feel of a traditional home. The wood cabinetry, stone countertops, and stainless steel appliances add an element of luxury to the small space. A stackable washer/dryer unit tucked away in the kitchen corridor makes the home a truly self-contained living space. The bathroom features a full sized walk-in shower with stunning eclectic tile and beautiful finishes. The bedroom features a built in desk as well as a private entrance leading out to the garden.
Some of our favorite 'Green Building' features of the home include the use of high quality non-toxic recycled blue jean insulation, radiant heat beneath the concrete flooring, and a future green roof - all of which create greater energy efficiency.
