Truckee ADU Design


The Town of Truckee enacted the necessary legislation to allow homeowners to add an Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) to their existing property.

MASTRIDICASA Architecture + Design was contacted by the owner of this property on Donner Pass Road opposite Donner Lake, and commissioned to design a detached garage for their residence, with an ADU above. The goal was to build a budget-friendly, utilitarian and efficient use living space within the limited square footage footprint. The design vision started completely different from the final design. While such a simple structure would seem to be a no-brainer, the opposite is often the case.


What you see in these drawings is the culmination of the design-collaboration with the homeowner - a two car garage below, and an ADU with one bedroom with full closet, one bath, open-plan full kitchen / great room, and upper level deck that looks out to Donner Lake.

Expecting a Summer 2022 start of construction...
