The cottage ('Accessory Dwelling Unit', or ADU) was built at the end of an existing driveway, with an unconnected garage below.  Placement of the cottage screens a new outdoor terrace from the house next door.  The terrace connects the cottage to the main house and overlooks the street.  At 350 sq. ft. the cottage has a bathroom, storage closet, kitchenette, gas fireplace, vaulted ceiling and loft.
