Accessory Dwelling Unit: Framing Walls

August 24, 2016

Hi folks, here’s the latest to report on our new 600 SF Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) in Asheville, NC. Stay tuned for more updates every week.

Here’s from inside the home. First floor and some of the interior partition walls are up, as are most of the second floor joists. One word can sum up this week: rain. Stairs are next!

Our first wall goes up without a hitch. We are using regionally sourced 2×6 Southern Yellow Pine for a super strong and sustainable product. The first floor of this home has 8′ walls, and the second will have 9′ walls!

A view of the first wall of second floor. Three big windows define this west-facing wall. The home is quite tall and slender, and will well exceed the 13’6″ limit of any tiny home on wheels. From grade the exterior vertical dimension will be around 30′.

Feel free to leave comments or questions about this Accessory Dwelling Unit. In the meantime, look out for step by step updates in the coming weeks.
