Project Overview:

The owner of this project is a financial analyst turned realtor turned landlord, and the goal was to increase rental income on one of his properties as effectively as possible. The design was developed to minimize construction costs, minimize City of Portland building compliance costs and restrictions, and to avoid a county tax assessment increase based on site improvements.

Project Details:

Product: Shou Sugi Ban – Gendai 1×6 select grade shiplap
Prefinish: Unoiled
Application: Residential – Exterior
SF: 900SF
Designer:
Builder:
Date: March 2019

Project Location:

Country: United States
Street Address: N/A
City: Portland
State: Oregon
Zip: N/A

The owner started with a large backyard at one of his properties, had a custom tiny home built as “personal property”, then added two ancillary sheds each under a 200SF compliance threshold to increase the habitable floor plan. Compliant navigation of laws and code ended up with an out-of-the-box design that only needed mechanical permitting and inspections by the city, but no building permits that would trigger a county value re-assessment.  The owner’s final construction costs were $50k less than a standard ADU, rental income almost doubled for the property, and there was no resultant tax increase.
