For those of you near San Francisco, this Inspired In-Law Cottage is on display at the Fort Mason Center through West Coast Green 2010. Designed by Larson Shores Architects, the structure – an accessory dwelling unit designed to help folks age in place – was built by Eco Offsite in eight days and, after some button up work, completed one day later.

The backyard cottage has all the space one could ask for in a home with a living area, kitchenette, bedroom, and bathroom. Plus, it’s designed and built to be low-impact. Materials used in this showcase home include:

    Cree LED lighting; Sol Solutions solar energy; Kelly Moore Enviro Coat paint; Swanstone solid surface counters; Hakatai recycled glass tiles; Wicanders cork flooring; Kaldewei roll-in shower; Rev-A-Shelf pull-down shelving; Rainwater HOG vertical cisterns; and Inka Biospheric Systems wall garden.

Pictured is a modern style roof version, but the cottage is available in a ranch - or pitch-style roof.

Inspired In-Law Cottage is available through Houseplans and is listed for sale from about $61,500, which includes manufacturing, state approvals, and factory inspections, but excludes tax, delivery, installation, local permits, site specific plans and approvals, utility connections, and local fees.
