The tenant moved out this weekend and we were finally able to take a look at what we have to work with here. The idea is that we’ll set it up as a guest house & offer it on AirBnB when not in use. The main house isn’t big enough to have a guest room (at least, we’re hoping we’ll need that extra room soon) so it’s nice to have this separate space. There’s a lot that’s great – the old beams from when it was a barn and hayloft, the loft bedroom feels very sea-side-y, and there’s plenty of space!
On the other hand, the former owners really cut corners with appliances and materials, so there’s a lot of work. I want to replace that long front window and luckily have some salvage windows to work with that’ll look a lot nicer. Some coats of paint, new light fixtures / ceiling fan, fixing that access panel mess in the bathroom, and general sprucing should help a lot. Inspiration welcome!
