Dreaming and Planning....Guesthouse 71

Well, today I took our permit application to Cypress County for building a small guesthouse on our property here!!  Yep...its the first step to another opportunity to get involved in the tourism and hospitality industry...one that we both enjoyed while operating That Country Place on our previous farmyard.

Since we live on Range Rd 71,  the name "Guesthouse 71" seems to be a favorite name for this new venture. Of course, I am putting the guesthouse way before the guests...but one can dream and plan.

Here are a few of my inspiration pictures, of course all are taken from Pinterest.


Just a simple exterior with a farmhouse country feel



A loft would be a good option to accomodate a few more people


Open shelving for above the sink and mini fridge area


I love subway tile and the rough shelving


Wide planked floors, and a fireplace make this area cozy


Love this moulding



 This would be interesting for the bathroom


Don't want it to be too feminine, so some industrial farmhouse
would be a good idea.




 Inspiration for the day.

Today is my big birthday...can't believe that I am turning the big 50
Wonder what year 50 will hold for me?

Thanks for stoppin by the country today.

That small guest house is beautiful . . . you have some lovely dreams to think about here. I absolutely love the post you did about lunch in the hay loft. That was perfectly charming.

How exciting! I just love all your pinterest ideas, and the collage you did for Guesthouse 21 is awesome! The front porch on the little guest home is just darling, along with the loft! I also loved the idea of the open shelving too. So many wonderful ideas, it will be a fun adventure for sure! May the Lord bless all you plan to do :)
