And I have that hole in my budget - which I'm looking into ways of making up, but still.
The thing is, I do not want a stranger living in my house. No, not even a friend-of-a-friend. I'm typing this in a tank top and underpants and I wanna be able to continue this lifestyle. Especially in the summer. Damn.
a) this is actually my workplace, too, and I think you can't force renters to leave the house for several hours per day, and
b) I don't know that I'll feel safe with anyone I don't know well living two doors down from me, given what happened.
So I'm looking for ways to utilize and monetize that space and maybe the soon-to-be-empty garage space. Ideas? Does anyone need an occasional room for something? Workshop with negotiable hours?
