Updates for the Spring, 2015, ADU Tour

buildlivebadge_2105The city-wide ADU tour is almost here. There will be 12 ADUs to tour in NE Portland on Saturday, May 30th, and 13 ADUs in Portland SE on Sunday.

The inaugural ADU Tour in the spring of 2014 sold out a week early at 850 tickets, and drew attendees from across the country, showing the surging interest in small housing.

This year, we’ve doubled the size of the tour, likely making this the largest tour of small houses, let alone ADUs, anywhere.

We truly hope that everyone who wants attend this year will be able to do so. Tickets are capped at 1,000/day, and they’re selling fast.

All locations

For tour attendees: We have prepared robust web pages with advice, tips, regrets, and factoids from each of the tour hosts about their design and build process, as well as an ADU Tour map app.

Biking: For bike riders, Saturday’s route is 10 miles, and Sunday’s route is 14 miles. There will be bike racks at each ADU.

Guided Tours: Eli Spevak, an editor of AccessoryDwellings.org, and professional developer, will be giving a tailored guided tour of the ADUs featured on the tour. Eli is an expert on ADUs, accessory structures, and pocket neighborhoods. Visit the tour page for more information about the guided ADU tours.

And for those who have been waiting to see the ADUs before deciding to attend, here’s quick facts about the ADUs that are scheduled for this year’s tour.

    Where can I find information on the ADU Workshop happening the evening prior to this months ADU tour. I don’t see it on the site anywhere. Was this cancelled?
