Curtis ADU | NWVentures | Portland, OR

N Curtis/N Holman ADU:

This corner lot consisted of a garage conversion Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) in the Arbor Lodge Neighborhood. We were able to work with the owners to create a large 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom unit with Laundry out of the existing space.

We opened the ceiling joists to create a vaulted ceiling over the open living & kitchen spaces resulting in nearly 15 foot vaulted ceilings. The majority of the garage floor needed to be floated out to create a level living space, as the existing garage floor had a significant slope from towards the street side of the property.

Floating shelves for the kitchen and the installation of quartz countertops gave the kitchen a contemporary feel. During the framing stage, we were able to work with the owners and architect to install additional windows for increased natural light.


The existing garage had vinyl siding, which we replaced this with new Hardi-Cement siding to match the existing residential house feel. We enclosed the original curb-cut for the driveway resulting in a more natural feel for the ADU

The owner will be renting this ADU out as a long-term rental.
