C4Digs Construction: Single-Family Craftsman

Blending seamlessly into North Queen Anne is a new 4-Star single-family home built by C4Digs. By saving the magnificent evergreen tree in the front yard and designing the house like the neighboring 100+-year-old Craftsman houses, rather than the prevailing modern style, the house fits perfectly into the neighborhood.

It is also ideally located near parks, schools, restaurants, and the Queen Anne Ave. N strip, giving it an extremely high Walk Score. A covered front porch, an open-concept main floor, and a large kitchen island makes this the perfect design for entertaining guests.

Tucked away above the garage is a hidden feature of the house—a detached accessory dwelling unit (DADU)! The studio-style DADU gives the new homeowners the flexibility and power to make rental income, if desired. The garage and DADU are conveniently located off the alley to provide privacy.

Beyond the flexibility provided by the DADU, C4Digs and developer Eiffel Tour LLC established their sustainability goals for this project early so that all the details could be ironed out and executed perfectly. Read on for some of the strategies utilized to achieve their Built Green 4-Star certification.
