You’re Too Kind!
Thanks to all you zillions of people who celebrated along with us as we officially acquired the Hermit Haus property. Since then, I’ve been starting on a website, which is nowhere near finished, but you can look at it, if you want to. And we have a temporary logo, featuring the friendly Hermann. We at least now have a presence!
We’ll let you know when there’s a Facebook page and all that, but until then, we will put updates on the Hermits’ Rest Enterprises page.
And More Remodeling
The new project we’re working on now is sprucing up our old office, which you may recall is a really lovely 1930s house in Cameron, the former Trubee place. It has four bedrooms and two baths, though one bedroom is really better suited to being a sunroom, office, or den. It has a huge living area and a gorgeous dining room.
But, the kitchen needs updating, and certainly the bathrooms need help. So, we’re going to have the folks at Miracle Method come in and refinish the tubs, surrounds, and the downstairs counter top. We really like the way the surfaces came out in the house we did in College Station. Most of the surfaces were either basically gray or basically tan, so I asked our future renters what they preferred, and went with what looks like a nice, tan granite. The tubs and sink upstairs will be nice and white.
I’m hoping we also can re-do the kitchen counters and refinish the cabinets, but we’re doing one thing at a time.
We also have to do some work on the master bedroom floor in that house, and put a light fixture in the kitchen. Then, our tenants are going to work on other improvements over time, just like the tenants in our Sunset Valley rental are doing. Sweat equity!
In fact, you’ll be hearing a lot more about the Sunset Valley tenants, Dave and Kim, since they have done such a good job on the floors at Rattlesnake that we’re bringing them in to repair the damage Mandi’s dogs did to the house she’s living in now (and fix some interesting mistakes the previous team made, like making the hot water come out of the cold fixtures. Etc. And we hope they’ll do a lot of the work on the Hermit Haus, too (in between other commitments, of course). We will be bringing in all sorts of folks on this one, creating work for the community! A winner!
