Got a small house on a big lot? Add accessory dwellings and call it co-housing. That’s what was done here in Portland, Oregon on this 50′x100′ lot. These tiny 12′x14′ structures (fully permitted in the City of Portland) contain a full bathroom, sleeping loft, partial kitchen, and a front porch to extend the outdoor living space.
The residents share a large garden, rainwater harvesting, bicycle parking, and the main kitchen in the adjacent 526 sq.ft. house.
