The gardener may come and go depending on the project we have. Chicken caretakers will be there for 10 minutes once in the morning around 9-11am to open the coop and 6-8pm to close it. None of these people will interact with you unless you want to. Please let me know if you need more privacy and I can adjust their schedule.

Outdoor Living Room – I have recently bought a full sofa set for outside. As well as, a 50” TV that is mounted to the tree. Please make sure to cover the TV after use. The Remotes are on the back of the TV cover in a pocket
Fire Table – In front of the couch is a propane fire pit. I do not provide propane but. I do provide a empty propane tank for you to fill up if you want to use the table. I do apologize for this inconvenience but it is not financially feasible for me to provide unless charging an additional charge. I can have it filled before your visit upon request and a $20 fee. I do provide free firewood for the fire pit. Use as much as you want!
**DO NOT COVER FIRE PIT UNTIL IT HAS FULLY COOLED. 1-2 HOURS AFTER USE!!!!***
Bonfire – Please close all bedroom windows before having a bonfire. There is free wood on the wall near the bonfire. There is also extra wood behind the carport in the dirt lot. Please make sure the fire is complete out before leaving it.

Fruit – Please enjoy any ripe fruit you find. Apple, Orange, Cumquat, Strawberry Guava and Lemons
Eggs – I try to leave eggs for every guest. Please test all eggs before using them. To test eggs, fill up a bowl of water and gently place the egg in the bowl. If it sinks, its fresh. If it stands up on its point, It is beginning to go bad. If the egg floats, please throw it away.
Kitchen: NEW granite countertops and large sink. Free Coffee and Water. Eat any eggs that are in the refrigerator. Use any oil or seasoning you need for cooking. Help yourself to any condiments in the refrigerator. Help yourself to any food that is there. Please check if it is still good as it may be left over from a previous guest.

Thermostat: The thermostat does not control the heater. A fan or heater will be left for you depending on weather. The house can get hot at times. I recommend opening all windows at night and closing them when you leave during the day. Closing or opening the sliding hallway door can help too.

Please leave all dirty towels on floor when you leave. Bottom left cabinet: Towels, Toilet paper, Paper towels, garbage bags. They is also a blow dryer in the cabinet to the right of the sink.
Air-mattress- You’ll find the air mattress under the green cloth near the couch under the window. Tip the coffee table on its side and move it to the desk near the glasses. Place the mattress near the east wall. Unzip so cover extends toward couch. Plug in and turn switch to inflate. It will automatically inflate. You may have to move it around a little to utilize the space. When finished, turn to deflate. It will deflate automatically but you need to push it together to pack it back up. I have additional bedding for the couch if needed. (URL HIDDEN)
