The Pistacia Cottage A.D.U.

Pistacia Cottage

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.

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

That’s really awesome. Sometimes, I can’t help but think about going tiny house.

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.

    Did you download the plans? Don’t take it from the small photo here on the blog.

    I understood a 3/4 bath to be toilet, sink and shower, minus tub.

I like the simplicity of the design. I think it makes it elegant.

If you add one foot to the 19 foot side then you can use a 4 x 8 sheet of siding and not have any waste.

    House was designed to client’s wishes to meet very specific California code. But, sure, adding the additional foot would make sense elsewhere!

Floor plan looks like Albert Frey’s original little house.
