Kol Peterson: An ADU for You

Kol Peterson, ADU expert and author of Backdoor Revolution: The Definitive Guide to ADU Development, visited NH in the fall of 2018. Peterson, who has helped to catalyze the exponential growth of ADUs in Portland over the last decade through ADU advocacy, education, consulting, policy work, and entrepreneurship, discussed the process of designing and building an ADU, as well as considerations such as costs, financing, permitting, rental models, and more. This event was hosted in partnership with Portsmouth Smart Growth for the 21st Century (PS21) and the NH Housing Finance Authority.

"Opening the Door: Faces of Portsmouth Housing" is a series of profiles of individuals affected by the shortage of affordable and workforce housing in Portsmouth. These profiles should help to answer the question, who is workforce housing? "Opening the Door: Faces of Portsmouth Housing" originally ran in Seacoast Sunday during the summer of 2017.
