Portsmouth event to explore accessory dwelling units

Author Kol Peterson will discuss process, details

Kol Peterson, a nationally known expert on accessory dwelling units, will be speaking on the subject at an Oct. 2 event in Portsmouth. 

Peterson is author of “Backdoor Revolution – The Definitive Guide to ADU Development,” which is written for planners, ADU advocates and homeowners who aspire to build ADUs.

Peterson will discuss the process of designing and building an ADU as well as other considerations, including costs, financing, permitting, design and rental models. He’ll also address why expanding the inventory of ADUs in New Hampshire will help homeowners, would-be renters, downsizers, and the availability of affordable housing for our state’s workforce and communities.

The event, is presented by PS21 and the NH Housing Finance Authority, begins at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 2, at the 3S Artspace, 319 Vaughan St., Portsmouth. Admission is free. To register, visit ps21.
