We've come to this realization: We aren't normal business people. We kind of knew that, but the last year has really showed us that we are very much into "Slow Business". We're not saying we want business and sales and rentals to be slow and not make money. We're saying that it pays off in the long run to build your business slowly, sustainably and creatively. Of course not having a bundle of cash up front to do a quick renovation really helps this philosophy as well!
Here are some of the ductless HVAC systems you can buy on Amazon for a lot less than $10,000. You'll have to pay for installation, but hopefully it will equal about half the quote we got.
Check out some photoshopping Ryanne did to test some color schemes for the new rental--
|The color the house is now, brown, brown brown.|
|My first instinct was to go lighter. but this beige is just too Blah!|
|Next I thought I'd add some color. But the green kind of clashes with the forest around it, and makes it feel to woodsy to me.|
|I think the blue is a great Mid Century color choice. I don't want it too be too bright, but more like a slate blue with some grey in it. Also the current orange-red beams will be a richer burgundy.|
