Guest House Construction in Scottsdale, AZ

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 is to create a comfortable living space for her mother.

In order to accomplish this we are building an addition on an existing detached structure, adding a kitchen and bathroom with age in place features. 

Because of the existing building’s location on the lot, city zoning requirements, as well as the location of main plumbing sewer line, the Casita is being expanded towards the middle of the rear yard.

In order to efficiently use the existing and new space, all of the new plumbing will be placed in the addition portion of the Casita.

Project Dimensions:

  • 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.)
