bellevue backyard cottages ( detached ADU's)

Bellevue is considering adding a backyard cottage ( detached accessory dwelling unit ) provision to their zoning code. Most likely they will be limited to 800 sq. ft. in size or a percentage of the floor area of the primary residence. As with most other jurisdictions owner occupancy will be required in either the primary residence or the cottage. They want to know what the public thinks and they are conducting a survey. Take a moment to fill out the detached ADU survey. To see examples of backyard cottage designs visit the backyard cottage plans page of our website.
