Thinking of building an accessory dwelling unit (ADU) at your home? Learn how to design an efficient space that feels larger than it is when Sheri Koones talks with Danielle Dobin, former chair Westport's Planning and Zoning Commission and current member of the Board of Finance.

Koones' book, ADUs: The Perfect Housing Solution profiles 25 of the most attractive, well-designed, and energy efficient accessory dwelling units, located from coast to coast in the U.S. and Canada. Each chapter includes information about the type of construction, the major green features, and how it is used. A variety of styles (e.g., laneway houses, garage conversions, stand-alone structures, and ones connected to the primary house) show versatility and ways to blend new ADUs into the architecture of the primary house and neighborhood. The multitude of photos show how these small structures can be designed to look and feel larger than they are.

Sheri Koones is a widely respected journalist and author of 12 books, which demonstrate the best and most efficient methods of building. She is the recipient of the several prestigious Robert Bruss Real Estate Book Award. She has written numerous articles about home construction and has been the speaker at many events such as the International Building Show and the National AIA Convention.

Copies of ADUs: The Perfect Housing Solution will be available for purchase and signing.
