|The Bed & Breakfast|
We would greet and check the guests in. Once everyone was in for the night we would retire to our little apartment down stairs and call it good.

My husband pieced the makeshift apartment together himself, converting what had once been a restraint's kitchen into a living room. The wall where a large stove had once stood was dripping from fry grease. The bedroom was in the old cooler. Very sound proof. The bathroom had to be built up on a platform to accommodate the plumbing. The only window in the whole apartment was at the top of the stairs so we were able to sleep really well, and late if we weren't careful!

The other thing that everyone really needs to know about old buildings is that the walls are thin. The doors are thin. The pipes are thin! If you are staying in a really cool old building, know that when the builders built it, they only had old news paper to line the walls with so we can hear you! Even in those most amazing, earth shattering, "OMG" kind of moments. 'Nough said.
But we slept in a cooler....
