At HD Seattle we believe Seattle’s cottages should be comfortable, safe and custom-built.


We build comfortable backyard cottages

Being comfortable means having a space that meets your needs. We think of a comfortable space like you think of your favorite chair. It should leaving you saying “this is just right.”

If I were doing a serious remodel or a from-scratch construction project HD Seattle would be at the top of my list.

Our build process starts with a conversation that helps us learn how you are going to use your cottage space. Even in this initial interaction we start talking about the details that make our cottages so much more than just a Detached Accessory Dwelling Unit (DADU). We begin to answer questions like where should doors go? Or how should the kitchen and living room spaces interact? Or will the electrical outlets include USB chargers? Throughout the entire process we partner with you to build the cottage that meets your needs.

We build safe backyard cottages

Whether it’s choosing the right materials to protect your home from the elements or installing a wireless security system, we worry about safety so that you don’t have to. We adhere to, and often exceed, modern safe building practices to ensure that your structure will not only stand the test of time but also provide a safe space in which your family, friends, or business will thrive.

We build customized backyard cottages

At HD Seattle we custom design cottages around our client’s wants and needs. You may be trying to preserve a section of your backyard landscape or perhaps you are wanting to build a space that doesn’t look directly into your neighbor’s windows. Whatever the constraint we will work hard to find creative solutions to your concerns.

Your cottage should reflect who you are, your lifestyle, and what you want to achieve. No two customers are exactly the same and that’s why we are in the business of creating custom backyard cottages!

The truth is we love working with our clients to maximize each and every cottage that we build. We hope you get in touch to begin the journey!

Are you dreaming of building a space where…

  • Friends and family can stay?
  • An aging parent can live close to you?
  • Your income can be supplemented with a rental unit?
  • Hobbies or work can happen?

HD Seattle is ready to guide you through the construction process!
