Guesthouse Pinsperation!

I have recently decided that we need a guest house.  I know the word “need” can sometimes be translated as meaning ” I want”, but I think we actually need one!  We truly don’t have a good place for guests to stay in our home.  With 3 children each having their own room and the 4th room being used as an office, extra space to sleep is in high demand!  So…I have been sourcing all sorts of ideas on Pinterest to come up with the perfect guest house for our backyard.

I think it would be fantastic to have a space that could be used for parties, a place to watch sporting events on TV or even just a place to retreat.  I want it to be self-sufficient for our parents who like to visit or for our kids as they get older and come back with their own families.  I would like it to be contained with a stacked washer and dryer, a kitchenette, a full bath, and a lounge area.  Having a very strong indoor-outdoor connection with the pool and having a nano door so it blurs the lines between the indoors and out is also important to me.  And it will definitely have furniture covered in durable fabrics so you could come in with a wet bathing suit, sit down and hang out!

I’m so excited to get it started and will keep you updated as we get going on this fun project!  Here are some of my inspiration pics…
