Rick had plenty of building experience, so when he decided to construct a detached accessory dwelling unit (DADU) on his large lot in Issaquah, he wanted it to be a hands-on project. TC Legend Homes built the highly insulated SIPs shell, and Rick took it from there. These photos show what an excellent job he did with the finish work. While the home does not have solar panels installed yet, it is oriented to make the future addition of PV simple.
We like this project because it shows how an owner who wants to get involved can save on construction costs and still end up with an air-tight, well-built structure that will last for generations. We also like how Rick made excellent use of his beautiful treed lot, adding another home near his main residence that will bring him rental income and add value to his property.
