If you are working on a plan for 1000 sq ft house, you have a lot of decisions to make. Floor plans for 1000 sq ft houses come in many layouts. Most prefabs will be rectangular or square, I shaped or L shaped and at least 12-14 feet wide. You can often maximize your backyard potential with a custom shape.
What ADU floor plan will make the most of your backyard?
Hint: the ones that fit your backyard like a lost piece of a puzzle.
A family is moving an aging parent closer to home, and try to accommodate a guest suite for a wheelchair bound relative. Lot size allows to plan for 1000 sq ft house.
The location of this ADU was restricted from all 4 sides sides:
1. Property line 2. Main house 3. Creek 4. Public Utility Easement
In addition to all that, it was in WUI zone and had to be built fire resistant. In this project, we had only one lucky break: there were two hydrants on both sides of the property within the required 400 ft distance.
A bigger bathroom accommodates the necessary area for a wheelchair turnaround, has both a shower and a tub, plus houses the laundry.
The living room has vaulted ceilings (though the general contractor in charge may blacklist us for this design feature). The fireplace is surrounded by two windows, with the nearby exit to the deck facing the creek.
The initial design had walk in closets in both bedrooms. However the homeowners decided to have a bigger one in the primary bedroom and have the smaller size guest room.
The best ADU Floor Plan addresses family needs and fits the backyard like a glove. Your new ADU should look like it has always been there, not as a foreign object. It should also maximize the space – take as much of your backyard as you are willing to dedicate to the new living area.
