Three upcoming classes: college application, earthquake retrofit, and backyard cottages

College Application and Admissions Seminar. Do you know a teen preparing for college?  Dr. Mark Hofer helps students find, get admitted to, and graduate from great colleges and universities that will best serve their academic, social, financial, and personal needs.  He guides students and their families through the application and admissions process to identify the best colleges while maintaining a focus on graduating with as little debt as possible.

This seminar is most helpful for parents of freshmen and sophomore high school students to get them started but is also helpful for families with juniors.  Join Dr. Hofer at this FREE introductory talk for college-bound high school students and their parents/guardians. No RSVP necessary.

Designing Backyard Cottages. Thinking of creating a backyard cottage? Wondering about the A/DADU land-use code changes that passed recently and would you like to find out more?

Check out this class on the why, what, where and how of building a DADU (detached accessory dwelling unit) taught by Sheri Newbold of live-work-play.

We will be able to look at a few of your examples as time permits… Bring your address, property dimensions and if possible, your sewer card. City of Seattle sewer cards are available here.
