New Construction

Montlake Backyard Cottage

About this project

This versatile space can be used as a reading room, a guest suite or for entertaining. Inside, there’s a modern bathroom and a ladder to a loft and sleeping space. Outside, it features an additional shower for an easy rinse heading in or out of the sauna or hot tub and a wrapping deck and patio connect it to the firepit and the main house. Whether you call it a backyard cottage, a shed or a garden retreat, this is an oasis in the city.
