ADUs can serve as ideal vacation rentals — giving people a chance to explore a new location while still enjoying the comforts of home. This Lindal-designed inn (see facing page) surrounded by eight ADUs (including the Sage featured on pages 4-5) was built as a resort destination in the idyllic Blue Ridge Mountains region of Virginia. Thoughtful site placement and variations in exterior cedar siding and composite panels make each unit unique. Contact your local Lindal representive to discuss development opportunities.
