Portland, OR, Accessory Dwelling Unit

We are in the middle of a 1,700 sq. ft. build here in Portland. I will throw a few pictures up here, but the owner is a partner at marketing firm, so his blog on the build has a little more polish than I can manage. It's at portlandbuilt.com.
  • 1700+ sq ft on two levels
  • advanced framing practices
  • slab on grade construction incorporating uncommon slab insulation details
  • utilities under and through stem walls to minimize wall penetrations
  • radiant heat in the slab and in a 1 1/2 ” poured gypsum underlayment on the second story
  • distance from the street and lack of dedicated driveway requires a residential fire sprinkler system
  • robust sheathing system comprised of 1/2″ plywood, tyvek house wrap, vertical tongue and groove and horizontally shiplapped 1″ xps foam insulating sheathing, fiber cement siding and “to the plywood” flashing above all penetrations
