Retire at Home in an ADU
About 90% of seniors want to stay in their homes for the next ten years. However, only 43% of those over the age of 70 are able to do so. Thanks to the new ordinance in Seattle, more properties are now able to accommodate Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs), a housing solution that makes it far easier for seniors to stay in their homes as they age. At Urban Cottage, our goal is to make this opportunity a reality by helping families buy properties or build DADUs to accommodate members in all stages of life.
Much of what gets us excited about ADUs are the advantages they pose over other senior housing options. When seniors occupy ADUs, they are able retain the autonomy and privacy that would diminish were they to occupy the same unit as family or move to an assisted living facility. But they also enjoy the security and support of having family nearby. We believe ADUs just might revolutionize the way that seniors live, and we’re excited to help you incorporate this model into your family’s plan.
A Solution for Seniors & Family Alike
ADUs allow seniors the comfort of their own space while being in close proximity to family. As a result, the quality of living and peace of mind granted by ADUs are unrivaled by most other options for older folks – which is why the new ordinance on ADUs in Seattle is such an exciting development for our community.

A Solution for Every Stage
The ADU Lifecycle
While ADUs are an excellent choice for Aging in Place, they also provide value for families at every stage. Young families may rent the ADU to supplement their income, or their parents might move in. More established families may let their teens use the ADU. In any case, the ADU is an Aging in Place solution and so much more.Learn More About ADUs
