Multipurpose

Our house is not huge but there is plenty of space with only 2 of us living in a 3 bedroom house.  We have the luxury of a dedicated guest room which is listed on Air BnB as well as being available for family and friends.  The other bedroom is primarily my sewing and craft room, however, I do have a single bed with a trundle bed in the room.

The beds are not shown in this photo but are along the wall on the left-hand side.

Yesterday I did some minor rearrangements to turn this room into a bedroom for our 2 granddaughters who a visiting for the last week of the school holidays.

The sewing table has been moved.  I added a towel rail and a small desk which are normally in the guest room.

The repositioned sewing table allowed space for the trundle bed.

The girls have their own bedroom with minimal disruption to the household.

Other Stuff

I have not totally forgotten you all but I have been busy with other stuff.  I travelled interstate for family reasons and then had a work conference to attend so I have not been hanging out in The Castle much lately.

However, I am back and will be putting the finishing touches to our property in preparation for Sustainable House Day on Sunday.

You may also have noticed that I have added a link ‘Accommodation at The Castle’ at the top of the blog.  This will take to links to our AirBnB entry for our guest room.

I hope to be back with a ‘real’ post before too long.

Thanks for your patience.

Creating Space

We hosted our first Air BnB guest last weekend and we are also expecting a couple of lots of house guests over the next few months.

The guest room is always neat with the bed freshly made but what about storage space?

002There is a full-sized wardrobe in this room and I knew that the space was not used as effectively as it could be.  So I set about re-arranging it to create a permanently vacant space for guests to use.  I only moved one thing – a spare pillow.  There are no ‘before’ photos but the photo below shows some of the things I have stored.  This was after I had re-arranged it and there is still some excess space if I needed it.

003Now we have a clear space to offer to guests without a mad panic to move things.
