This week Ethan talks with Kol Peterson who has been on the frontlines of ADU (Accessory Dwelling Unit) development and advocacy for the last 10 years in Portland, Oregon. This discussion, however, is not limited to that area but applies to the whole United States and beyond.

Ethan and Kai talk about how ADU’s are such an incredible opportunity for solving the housing crisis.

They also discuss what is making Portland one of the most tiny house-friendly cities in the country.
