Harold Scott and Kathryn Goff’s accessory home turned their 941-square-foot Denver, home into a duplex. The original house, built in 1921, sat on a large corner lot and housed their son’s young family. Sidekick Homes (, founded by Mike Kephart in 2007, built the addition in the Highlands neighborhood of northwest Denver. Sidekick Homes range in size from 360 square feet to 1,160 square feet and in price from $75,000 to $200,000 (not including land, foundation, utilities and additional site work).
