Redwood City ADU: A Home for Family
These young homeowners just purchased their first home in Redwood City and were looking to build a space for their parents to move into. They both work full-time jobs, and after scratching the surface on local municipal regulations and speaking with a few contractors, they realized they wanted someone to handle the process end-to-end on their behalf.
The husband's parents were moving from a 2,000 sq. ft. home to the 748 sq. ft. ADU, so they wanted it to feel as spacious as possible, while keeping a portion of their backyard open and the flexibility for a future expansion to the main home’s master bedroom. And with a space-efficient rectangular design, Cottage's design studio team was able to fit 2 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, a full-size kitchen, and a great room area.
