|The old cottage gets a new life|
Thankfully SIL and my nephew, who both needed business premises, agreed. Their fix involved repairing and painting the roof (we actually need a new roof, but we'll make do for now) and removing all the clutter. They also reinforced one wall, plastered most of the cracks, scraped and painted the interior and exterior walls.They also fixed the electrical wiring and have now moved both their businesses in there.
Moving SIL's business out of my house means that I now have a room I can turn into my writing room, instead of using a diningroom corner. I'm already dreaming about how I'm going to do up the space. It's going to be so nice to have a space where I can spread out my research stuff / can sit in a corner to write by hand and have space for all my computers and peripherals.
But that's only going to happen in the far off future. For the next couple of weeks, I plan to do a lot of client writing.
