1 Bedroom Tiny House for the Parents in Santa Clara

Cottage is designed this 340 square foot, 1 Bedroom custom ADU for a family looking to bring relatives closer to home with a tiny home like in-law unit.

Cottage worked extensively with these homeowners in Santa Clara who were looking add space to their property for family. Especially with the challenging circumstances of COVID, the family wanted to have their parents and in-laws cared for in an ADU instead of a nursing facility.

At the same time, the size of the ADU was dictated by a beloved Japanese Maple tree they wanted to keep and tight backyard dimensions. Meanwhile, the ADU needed to have a separate bedroom and preparation for "ADA-aware" features such as blocking for grab bars and a roll-in shower for the age-in-place ADU use case.

An ADU Design for the Perfect Tiny Home

Santa Clara Detached ADU - ADA Friendly

We're thrilled to have landed on a floor plan that will be comfortable for the older relatives in a small footprint while adding some design features that bring the ADU to life. Sun tunnels in the bathroom and a large skylight in the living area will pull in plenty of light for the small unit. Barn doors and pocket doors are a fun touch to create a quaint Cottage feel. That feel is mirrored by a small deck/patio in front of the ADU that will be a place for a rocking chair and many quiet evenings.

We're excited that the estimate for this ADU came out to an attractive price for a very unique project!
