Creating Value with a Backyard Home

Adding a backyard home to your property can change the way you live. These small homes have big benefits, and now thanks to new legislation in Seattle, there is a greater opportunity for homeowners to permit, design and build DADUs. We understand that construction projects are never simple, especially if you’ve never done one before. That’s why MyKabin is changing the game when it comes to providing turnkey building solutions that are easier, quicker and more affordable than traditional design-build methods. Gone are the days of construction chaos, confusion and cost overruns – from day one we make the entire process transparent and stress-free, and handle every single step from start to finish.

If you’re considering adding a DADU to your property, here’s how it can add extraordinary value to your home.

  • Turn your DADU into a rental property and earn extra cash to help with mortgage payments, traveling and home improvements.
  • Downsize into your backyard cottage and rent your primary home.
  • Move out completely and utilize your home and DADU as two rental properties.
  • These options only work if the cash flow works. We design our DADUs so they are cash flow positive from day one.

  • Investing in a DADU will raise the resale value of your property.
  • You may be eligible for extra tax benefits.

  • Allow your family members to age in place.
  • A separate space for a live-in nanny or au pair.

  • Turn it into a home gym or yoga studio.
