Looks like we’ll be heading to Portland on November 7th! As part of Build Small, Live Large’s three days of small housing events, 10+ Portland Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) owners will be opening their ADUs to the public.
RF and I have been planning to convert our garage into an ADU since we bought our small house over 5 years ago. Finances are, of course, the ultimate consideration, but there have been some permitting concerns as well. As legislators continue to propose loosening restrictions to encourage population density close to the city, we could end up benefitting from these changes by holding off.
I’m definitely curious to see what folks in the ADU construction world have been up to down in Portland. Early bird tickets are available until the 24th – full details below and on the Accessory Dwellings website, if you are also interested.
