We decided the building would make a pretty good guest house, or mother-in-law quarters. After all, it already had electricity and water. We drew up some plans and filed them away. It became a storage shed as our mothers are not in need of quarters.
Then we bought a sauna. So the guest house plans were modified to include a sauna room. Dean built a wall separating the space into two, installed an interior door, and wired the sauna into the corner of one of the rooms.
Then a friend of ours needed a place to stay for the school year. So it became rustic living quarters (in other words, a roof over a young guy's head). Dean added real exterior doors and a window.

And what a good thing it was to finish that room!
|well...finished except for the floor|
We said goodbye to her a week and a half ago, and we miss her dearly already.
But the room is still getting plenty of use. I crawl out there when I can no longer keep my eyes open and need a quiet place to nap. My sister and her boys as well as my mother-in-law (hey, what do you know?! It's a MIL quarters after all!) have, and plan to, put it to good use.
I'm hoping it will see lots of use in the coming months and years!
What a blessing friends and family are! I don't know what we'd do without their help and support right now.
(And no, helping out is not a requirement for use of our guest house!
Wait, maybe that would be a good idea after all...)
If you know how to run a sewage drain line, welcome up to our beautiful mountain town!
We'll let you stay in our guest room while you work! ;)
