ADUs can come in many forms: a conversion of an existing garage or outbuilding, an extension built onto your home, or a converted basement or attic.
During the design phase, it’s important to consider size restrictions for your lot, how to maximize space usage in a small footprint, weather efficiency and sound dampening, utilities for the space, accessibility concerns, storage, the use of natural lighting, and the necessary level of privacy.
With Portland ADUs, builders are required to meet certain criteria for sleeping, cooking, and sanitation.
Our skilled team is highly experienced in designing to meet all code requirements. We ensure proper fire separation, and make sure that stairs either meet current code–based on tread size and ceiling height clearance–or qualify to be grandfathered in. All systems that we install are ADU code compliant.
If you are ready to have ARCIFORM streamline the design/build process for your ADU, contact our office today to schedule a consultation.
