New Garage with Apartment suite (ADU)

I wanted to share a couple of images of a recently photographed project of ours.  This structure is locally called an “ADU”.  Not to be confused with the ACU (Army Combat Uniform), a garage with an apartment above is known as an Accessory Dwelling Unit.  This particular project features a 2 bay garage at the ground level and a studio apartment on the upper level.

This ADU features a gambrel roof with dormers on either side.  The canopy of a large live oak tree covers one side of the structure as it was tucked back into the corner of the lot facing both a rear and a side alleyway.  The gambrel roof shape allowed us to maintain additional space inside the apartment while still pulling away from this grand tree at the midpoint of the roof.
