Build Small/Live Large Conference - Let's Talk ADU's

Great conference in Portland, Oregon that addresses smaller homes, ADU's, and housing for missing middle households. And at least one session on universal design. It will be interesting to see if/how they distinguish universal design in homes from accessible design in homes. The former is generic, marketable to a mainstream audience, and easily customizable; the other is specific to a particular person or usually those who operate only from a seated position.
