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 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 due to the city of Scottsdale zoning requirements, and 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.

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.)
