SMART DESIGN

 
 

We use Smart Space Design Principles™ to create ADUs that are both beautiful and functional for our clients in Central Oregon. Whether you plan to live in your ADU or rent it out, you need a space that works. Here’s how the principles guide our ADU design and construction.

Focus on efficiency - Energy efficiency is of the utmost important to ADU design. Consider the walls. Our clients get 13% more space within the same ADU site footprint because we use 2x4 wall construction with spray foam insulation rather than the standard 2x6 wall insulated with fiberglass.
Choose responsibly sourced, durable materials - The materials that you choose have a huge impact on how your ADU performs over time, especially given the weather conditions in Central Oregon. We always recommend durable materials, sourced locally and with minimal environmental impact whenever possible.
Provide realistic storage - To make a tiny house livable, storage matters more than almost anything. Think, for example, about storing the outdoor gear that you use to enjoy the splendor of Central Oregon. It's critical to plan for ADU storage that serves the life you want.
Use natural lighting and vaulted ceilings - Natural lighting brings the outdoors in, giving the ADU a larger sense of space. Vaulted ceilings serve the same purpose. With room above your head and plenty of light through the windows, you'll more easily relax and find refuge in your tiny home.
Make multi use spaces and built-ins - Designing multi-use spaces allows you to get the most out of every square foot. For example, the Catalpa (585 sf) features a contemporary farmhouse design with a flex room that could be used as a second bedroom, home office, guest space or a cozy TV watching alcove.
Plan functional outdoor space - Consider the Monroe (660 sf), which has a living room that connects to the outdoors with an adjacent patio (or raised deck) with an attractive and protective Pergola/Trellis. The patio and protective cover open up space for grilling, dining, and perhaps yoga in the spring, summer and fall.
