Seattle Backyard cottages - The the dpd posts a new cam

CAM-116B The Department of Planning and Development (DPD) has posted a new client assistance memo (CAM) to outline the citywide backyard cottage ordinance. CAMs are guides intended to help people navigate the building permit processes in the city of Seattle.

CAM 116B, Establishing a Backyard Cottage (Detached Accessory Dwelling Unit) "This Client Assistance Memo (CAM) explains the requirements and process for establishing a detached accessory dwelling unit (also called a DADU or mother-in-law unit) on an owner-occupied Single Family zoned lot in southeast Seattle."

If you are considering building a cottage in your backyard it is still worth reviewing the DPD's older, more comprehensive (but now somewhat inaccurate) publication: "A Guide to Building a Backyard Cottage in Southeast Seattle."
