For Seattle residents- The City of Seattle has embraced the development of
accessory dwelling units as an important strategy to increase the supply of
affordable housing.

Traditionally, mother-in-law units have provided housing for
older family members. Rental income can allow older homeowners remain in
their homes and communities as property values and taxes rise.

This backyard cottage project is one of several illustrating
a Seattle Land Use report on the subject (page 2). Check with your local
planning department to see what regulations apply to your situation.'s-Report.pdf
