**The ADU Tour Home Page**

We are excited to announce the next ADU Tour. This tour has an awesome line up, chock-full with awesome and diverse ADU types and styles.

It’s going to be a full weekend event with 10+ ADUs in NE Portland featured on Saturday, and a different set of 10+ ADUs in SE Portland on Sunday. None of these ADUs have been featured on previous ADU tours before.

I’ll be teaching a 3 hour ADU workshop on Friday evening, and on Saturday evening, there will be a party with music and all six tiny houses on wheels open at Caravan- The Tiny House Hotel.


See more images of the ADUs on this year’s tour, learn more about the ADU Tour, and register at the ADU Tour home page ( Early bird sales end on August 19th, 2017.

    How about in California? We need more affordable housing.

      Are you saying there should be an ADU tour in California, Nancy? Sounds like a great idea, but to organize one you’d need to find a community with a fairly high number of permitted ADUs within a single area. Or, if they were more dispersed, you could make it an online tour, in the sense that there could be videos of walk-throughs, etc. I hope someone takes this project idea up!
