AADU vs DADU With Theresa Ahdieh

Its Friday!  Wow! – this cloud cover this morning feels AMAZING!  The heat blast was good, and I am not complaining, but this cooler temp is so nice.  NO I don’t want Winter & Rainy season yet – I can wait longer for sweaters and boots.  I am basking in the warm evenings, my lavender bug spray, and my pink sparkly lights in my backyard.  Last night I made the most delicious Shrimp Salad for dinner, it was crisp, cool, light in flavor, heavy in satisfying crunch and filling!

Crisp Ice Berg Lettuce (hand torn for optimal crunch)
Heirloom Yellow Ripe Tomato
Sliced Red Radishes
Sliced Green Onions
Chunky Torn (not cut) Avocado
Old Fashioned Cucumber Peeled, Seeded, & 1/2 Moon Sliced
Baby Shrimp Meat
Shredded Cheese
Thousand Island Dressing
Finished with 1/4 Lime Squished All Over the Salad
Fresh Ground Pepper & Salt

How about a bit of clarification – DADU’s & ADU’s
These are becoming more  common in Seattle.  Seattle is creating Urban density by allowing certain lot sizes to build a “Tiny Home/Cottage” on the property.

DADU = Detached Accessory Dwelling Units
AADU = Attached Accessory Dwelling Unit

An accessory dwelling unit (ADU) is a separate living space within a house or on the same property as an existing house. These units are not legal unless they have been established through a permit process. A legally permitted unit in the home is called an attached accessory dwelling unit (AADU). A legally permitted unit on the property (but not within the home) is called a detached accessory dwelling unit (DADU) or backyard cottage. Tiny houses, with foundations, are considered DADUs.

My Hawthorne 4015 has both a DADU & an AADU – A Great  concept, still in the early stages of acceptance.  Unlike other cities – we are not full of High Rise Buildings – by adding AADU’s &/or DADU’s we are creating more homes & places for people to live in our popular city & areas.

If you would like more information on building & creating here is the link for Seattle.  *Remember each City & County has their own rules/laws/ordinances for these types of dwellings.  Please do your due diligence prior to creating.

With that bit of clarification – I bid you Adieu for this week!

The best compliment from You is a referral to help someone you know that could use my level of service & dedication to their Real Estate Dreams & Desires.
