Despite Portland being one of the most ADU-friendly cities in the country, building an ADU can still seem out of reach for many Portland homeowners. Portland State University School of Architecture’s Center for Public Interest Design and Propel Studio have partnered to offer five prototype designs for small backyard homes or accessory dwelling units (ADUs). These designs offer a variety of opportunities for interested homeowners to build small homes on their lots in order to create income that can offset the rising cost of homeownership while also addressing the lack of affordable housing options for many Portlanders. This project seeks homeowners willing to construct one or more of these prototype houses. In exchange for being an early adopter, participating homeowners will receive free design and management services.
