cottage in new england
renovating a rental pad
was lucky to have a permissive landlord who planned to gut the
building for his retirement a few years down the line. Still, it
took her three weeks of working every night and all weekend just
to repaint the tiny house. Why would anyone do that much work to
a rental property? As Erin says, "I love painting and
fixing up furniture. This project inspired me to start an
antique business Fork & Tine with my Mom; we are both
longtime collectors. [Fixing up the house] was part of my new
start, very therapeutic, but mostly, I loved the view."
