Thinking about a backyard cottage? Want to find out more?
Advertiser Ncompass Cottage Company, and their partner Microhouse, are offering another of their free, convenient, concise informational workshops to help you learn more on Wednesday, Nov. 9th, from 7 p.m. – 8 p.m. in West Seattle.
You’ll learn about the history of backyard cottages, current codes and regulations, financing options, planning and design considerations, and how to select an architect and builder.
“Smaller cottages can be thought of as income producing rental properties, equity building additions, or perhaps as a warm safe place to have an aging parent live close by,” said Stefan Hansmire of Ncompass.
Ncompass Cottage Company provides folks all over the Puget Sound with affordable, environmentally sound and sustainable backyard and small lot cottages.
The company’s philosophy can be summarized this way: Smaller homes on existing lots mean more affordable housing, less demand on municipal infrastructure, better use of immediate resources, and more flexibility for everyone.
Their next workshop will be this coming Wednesday, Nov. 9th, from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m., at the Community School of West Seattle, 9450 22nd Ave SW.
Mortgage expert Justin Arnold from Sterling Savings Bank will be on hand to explain how you can finance your cottage project. Also participating will be backyard cottage owner Sean McClintock to share his thoughts on building and owning a detached accessory dwelling unit, or DADU.
