Backyard Cottages: Eco-Friendly Investments that Provide Affordable Housing
Updated regulations in Seattle have more and more homeowners seriously considering the possibility of building a DADU (Detached Accessory Dwelling Unit) on their property.
Homeowners, renters, and the City of Seattle in general all stand to benefit from an increase in DADUs, but all too frequently, the cost of building a DADU can be prohibitively expensive.
Then MyKabin came along.
In Pursuit of the Affordable Backyard Cottage
Last summer when the Seattle City Council passed legislation that encouraged development of backyard cottages across the city, the move was generally met with enthusiasm from housing advocates promoting increased housing choices in the city’s single family zones.
Seattle’s New ADU Rules May Ease Affordable Housing Crisis
This summer the Seattle City Council took a step toward easing the affordable housing crunch in the city, which is filled with single-family neighborhoods. New legislation eases the rules around building accessory dwelling units in single-family zones, a designation that makes up 60% to 65% of the city.
MyKabin streamlining process for constructing backyard cottages
Dr. Ronnie and Wendy Cunningham had tried to get a backyard cottage built next to their Madison Valley home for the last five years, but kept getting hung up in the permitting process.
How a game of cards launched a Seattle-area backyard cottage company
Following years of political and legal battles, Seattle this summer loosened restrictions on the development of backyard cottages, yet they remain relatively expensive to build. A new Bellevue company, MyKabin, has engineered a workaround to streamline development.
Getting a backyard cottage is easier than you think
Ronnie Cunningham is a longtime resident of Madison Valley. He’s lived in this house since 1975. Now a few steps away sits his new baby – a cozy MyKabin cottage. “We have a relatively good-sized lot, it’s a 5,900 square foot lot ” he said. “We weren’t using the space, it was just a garage that was storing a bunch of stuff.”
