The Wakefield Accessory Dwelling Unit and Garage is well underway this winter, despite the snow. Underslab insulation in installed, slab with radiant floor is poured, structure for cantilever deck is built, and walls prepared for spray-foam insulation.
This will be a small accessory dwelling unit in the heart of Wakefield, RI… walking distance to town and adjascent to South County’s William C. O’Neill Bike Path.
Many projects feature high tech solutions to sustainability, but are built on virgin land high in the hills, miles from services and community. In my estimation, the energy savings of this simple, tight, well-insulated design that adds additional housing to the village core will far exceed a comparable project situated in a less efficient location.
