All About ADUs

PDX Green Team is proud to be certified as ADU Specialists

Portland is leading the country in sustainable housing as well as ADU construction. With specialty training from Earth Advantage, our team is excited to help our clients understand the world of Accessory Dwelling Units.

As our population increases and urban areas become denser, adding additional living space to an already existing property allows for rental income, multigenerational living, and flexibility of housing as an owner’s needs change through the years. The city of Portland is offering incentives for ADU construction, but they are not guaranteed forever. If you are thinking of building an ADU, now is the time! Our team can help answer your questions and connect you with resources to make the goal of building an ADU a reality.
