a homemade b&b

I went for a visit to San Diego a few days ago and to see some old friends. My old roomie, Helene, and her husband Preston have a great little craftsman house  in the area of South Park. They have been working hard redoing their garage and some airstream trailers and then renting them both out on air bnb. I was so impressed with all the work they have put into it and wanted to share!

The redone garage also has an optional outdoor shower…for rinsing off the sand from all that surfing.

Below are some great photos of their backyard. So many nooks and crannies to admire.

This bench pictured above is one of Helene’s next projects. I brought the foam down for her from LA so she could cover it and use it on top of a bench she built! Look how cute Wylie is!

They also have an airstream trailer in their driveway for rent on air b&b as well as doubling as an occasional pop up shop. A cute little nugget of a trailer.

Helene and Preston’s 3rd baby! Helene put me to work in this gem, helping with some insulation work. I am glad to have gotten my hands dirty and to be a part of the renovation! Can’t wait till it is done!
