backyard cottage Seattle - Seattle cottage addition

backyard cottage & garage

With an oversized North Seattle lot and a falling-down shack of a single car garage, our clients saw the potential for creating a truly useful and beautiful structure in their back yard. With clever design and a nod toward the main home, the new backyard cottage includes a 2-car garage with a shop and projects area, a main floor with full kitchen, 3/4 bath and laundry, and an upper multi-purpose loft, all of it built with beautiful and durable materials. Completed 2013.
