Fivedot recently completed the Seward Park Backyard Cottage in Seattle, Washington. This backyard detached accessory dwelling unit (DADU) is the new home for a couple who are downsizing in order to be closer to their children and grandchildren.

Located in the backyard of their children’s home, this cottage opens up to the backyard on the main floor and to the expansive view on the upper floor. Carefully placed openings and an exposed ceiling allow the smaller space to feel bigger than it is. Custom floating stairs allow for a writing desk to nestle in below the treads.
