Accessory Dwelling Units on Display: this weekend–June 1!

Rex

Fourteen years ago, my wife, Lydia, and I replaced a 100 year old, falling down shed with a small house in our backyard. Now accessory dwelling units are all the rage.

This weekend, you can go out and see some of these homes yourself. And maybe get inspired to build one yourself. Why?

  1. help pay the mortgage
  2. have your friends or family nearby
  3. make use of unused space
  4. have a place to move into when the house gets too big

and more!
