Ever since I was a kid I had this dream of opening up a motel.
Only, instead of having a strip of motel room, there would be little cabins all spread out over the property.
Each cabin would have its own fireplace and little air conditioner. It would also have its own little kitchen and a BBQ. Last year, my dream of opening up such a motel finally came true. I found a place that already had a similar set up. It was all rundown though and the fireplaces needed a lot of work. I hired an HVAC company to come out and get all of the fireplaces up to par. I want them to be safe and functional. Meanwhile, I started fixing up the kitchens. The HVAC workers suggested that we convert the fireplaces to gas. That way, they burn cleaner and there is less of a chance that guests will hurt themselves. I don’t know why I didn’t think of that but that does make more sense. I don’t really want to be having to show guests how to start fires or worry about them forgetting to close the grate. We got all of the fireplaces converted to gas fireplaces. We also got wall air conditioners installed as well. After all, let’s face it, most people go on vacation in the summer anyway. It took almost all year but I finally have my little cabin motel that I always wanted. Two months ago we started taking reservations. So far, it is going well. We are starting to see a little bit of a profit.
