A one-stop source about accessory dwelling units, multigenerational homes, laneway houses, ADUs, granny flats, in-law units…
The ADU Tour is just a couple weeks away on September 8-10th. Registration information is located on the ADU Tour home page.
If you are planning to build an ADU, drop whatever else you have planned and clear your schedule for this weekend. This will be the last ADU Tour before Portland’s system development charge waiver is set to lapse in July of 2018, allowing homeowners to save $10K or more on an ADU.
This weekend is the best way to get started on the ADU development process. Based on the project profiles provided by each hosts, 16 of this year’s hosts attended at least one ADU Tour and cite the tour as instrumental.
This is the largest (and best) ADU Tour in the nation. If you’re from outside of Portland, drive or fly in to get here. We can’t make the totality happen again in Oregon, but this event will be invaluable in helping you to learn how to spread ADUs in your area. There’s already people coming from Alaska to Florida and we would love to have more people attend from all over the country.
The 24 ADUs on this year’s tour are top notch, representing a huge range of types, styles, and costs.
For those who are interested in seeing certain ADU structural types, here is the breakdown by day (a few of them fall into 2 categories).
|Detached new construction||5||7|
|ADU above a garage/workshop||3||2|
|Addition to ADU||2||0|
They range in size from 250 sq ft to 800 sq ft. More detailed information is available upon registration.
The goals of the ADU tour are three-fold.
