Ryanne attended our chamber of commerce wedding forum this week to network with other wedding service providers. It's got us thinking of becoming a wedding venue, but we are extremely hesitant. Our brick mason contractor came over to look at a couple things, at the same time he started giving us some great ideas for the house. We just bought this book to check out, we heard about it in one of our town's newsletters- Your Town: A Destination: The 25 Immutable Rules of Successful Tourism. Interesting!

Anne Marie has a great combination of rental income happening- a long term rental near a university, a full time Airbnb rental in the lower floor apartment in her house, and the ability to rent her whole house when she and her family leave for vacation. She's truly utilizing her real estate assets. Check our her beautiful home and lower floor rental in Boulder, Colorado. Thanks Anne Marie!

I realize our roofer dudes are wearing t-shirts on an oddly warm day in the above image, but I assure you it is now 10 degrees outside. Despite the cold, they continue to work, thank goodness. Any work we can get done on the new rental right now is bonus. Another great winter surprise for us is that our Farmhouse is doing well for February. This is our first year anniversary of the rental business, this being our first winter, and we're pleased with the amount of nights rented. Here are some apartment size fridges that we love (but didn't want to pay full price for!).

We have more bookings than we expected for the chilly month of February. Getting a sign made for the Farmhouse so people know where to turn- an essential element that has been missing this year. I also bought some driveway reflectors to lead people down the right path. New house progress includes getting the power taken down, roofer starting and the power plugged back in again. The glamour never ends! (See above photo of my cleaning lady-esque slippers and my very trusty Eureka Airspeed One).
