Backdoor Revolution- The ADU Book

In 2010, when I started this blog, I had no idea it was going to lead to this.

But today, I'm proud to release a book into the world called Backdoor Revolution-The Definitive Guide to ADU Development. It has taken me 2.5 years to write-a labor of love.

The trajectory of this ADU book began with this lowly blog.

This blog translated into a class.

That class eventually made me realize there was a need for other homeowners who weren't in Portland, to be able to accces information about how to develop an ADU.

Then, in editing AccessoryDwellings.org, which I started with two other ADU afficianados in 2012, I began to pay attention to the bigger ADU trends, or lack thereof, outside of just a small handful of cities in the country.

I witnessed city after city floundering in its regulatory attempts to foster ADUs. I knew what they were doing wrong, but who was I to tell them so. Eventually, seeing this pattern of failure made me fed up. That's when I knew it was time to write a book.

This book is an attempt to help those who want to help themselves. It is not an attempt to convince others of the merits of ADUs. It is an attempt to help those who are already convinced of the merits of ADUs, to actually build one.

It is simultaneously an attempt to help cities who are hitting their heads against the wall with futile effort to induce more ADUs. It is not an attempt to convince cities that they should foster ADUs. Rather, it is an attempt to help cities and ADU advocates to accomplish their aspirations of fostering more ADUs.


If this describes you, you will get great value from reading this book. You can buy the ADU book here

  8. Loan Opportunity Offered By Mr, Benjamin That Save My Family From Financial Bondage {lfdsloans@lemeridianfds.com}

    Hello Everyone, I am Putri Adiratnaa single mom from Jakarta, I would like to share this great testimony on how I got a loan from Mr, Benjamin, when we were driven out of our home when I couldn't pay my bills anymore, After being scammed by various companies online and denied a loan from my bank and some other credit union I visited. My children were taken by the foster care, I was all alone in the street. The day i shamefully walked into an old school mate who introduced me to Daisy Maureen. At first I told her that I am not ready to take any risk of requesting a loan online anymore, but she assured me that I will receive my loan from them. On a second thought, due to my homelessness I had to take a trial and applied for the loan, luckily for me I received a loan of $80,000.00 from Mr, Benjamin. I'm happy I took the risk and applied for the loan. My kids have been given back to me and now I own a home and a business of my own. All thanks and gratitude goes to Le_Meridian Funding Service and for the help of Mr, Benjamin for giving me a meaning to life when i had lost all hope. If you currently seeking for a loan assistance, you can contact them via: {lfdsloans@lemeridianfds.com} Or WhatsApp +1-989-394-3740
