Welcome to our site.  ADUPDX (Accessory Dwelling Unit - Portland) and DMS Architects (www.dmsarchitects.com) believe in small infill projects that enhance the liveability of our urban environment.  We have developed numerous ADU plans that are permit ready (minus your site plan).


ADU, GRANNY FLATS, COTTAGE APARTMENTS - THEY ARE ALL THE SAME AND THEY CAN BE A WONDERFUL ADDITION TO YOUR URBAN LOT FOR A NUMBER OF REASONS:
  • Enhance your home – architect designed ADU’s to complement your house. 
  • Support multi-generational living – independent, comfortable living space allowing grandparents to live next to grandkids and older folks to age-in-place 
  • Produce income – economical designs keep development costs down so that rental income can exceed debt service and generate revenue from your ADU.  
  • Help the planet – ADUs help us build a more compact urban form, more walkable, more accessible … more Portland. 
  • Go Green - ADU's are inherently green.  Each person gives off 100/watts/hr,  If insulated and heated properly your ADU can utilize very little energy.   Ask us how!
