The Pistacia Cottage A.D.U.

Shawn Dehner of The Small House Catalog says that a client released rights to a tiny A.D.U. that we’ve added to our free catalog.

It’s being built in California but could be modified for other climates. Shawn was also thinking a kitchen could be added in the “closet” area for the right owner.

I am hoping we can get photos of the completed project and have an update sometime in the near future.

It’s called the Pistacia Cottage and here are specifications:

  • Bedrooms: None
  • Bathrooms: 3/4
  • Closet: Yes
  • Kitchen: Possibly, closet space can be converted, as desired.
  • Ceiling height: 8′-0″
  • Overall dimensions including porch: 16′ wide x 19′
  • Foundation type: Concrete slab
  • Plan includes basic electrical and plumbing
  • Print size: 18″ x 24″
  • Immediate PDF download with license to build

You can download the plans here.

  1. That is a great place to call home. I would raise the roof for upstairs sleeping add a kitchen area and call it good.

    • The tiny house was designed to be utilized as a backyard cottage. It matches the main house and looks superb. The main room of the Pistacia.

  2. It says a 3/4 bath but it shows a shower in the very hard to read drawing. I’d put in a small kitchen for sure (with a combo laundry unit) and have a murphy bed in the great room.
