Guest House Construction in Scottsdale AZ
This Guest House “Casita” in South Scottsdale, AZ creates an quaint, modern, and architecturally appropriate “tiny home” in this Scottsdale neighborhood.
The homeowner’s goal was to create a comfortable living space for her mother.
In order to accomplish this we built an addition on an existing detached structure, adding a kitchen and bathroom with age in place features.
The Guest House was expanded towards the middle of the rear yard because of the existing building’s location on the lot, city zoning requirements, as well as the location of main plumbing sewer line.
In order to efficiently use the existing and new space, all of the new plumbing was placed in the addition portion of the Casita.
- Existing detached structure: 12’x16′ (192 s.f.)
- Addition to detached structure: 8′ x 16′ (128 s.f.)
- Total Square footage of new guest house “Casita”: 20′ x 16′ (320 s.f.)
