A tired, dated cottage, a budget of $300, a team of 4 people and a timeline of one week – what a challenge! Access Home Staging is thrilled to have been chosen as one of only 6 teams participating in this challenge and we know we have our work cut out for us. Our team (orange) will be arriving at this small family-owned business on Saturday, September 6 and we won’t be leaving until the 13th. We’re donating our time, supplies and creativity to up-date one of the 6 cottages that are rented out from May to October of each year http://www.hiawathacottages.ca
The rules, according to our fearless organizer, Angela Brooks-Osbourne;.1…you don’t know which one ( of the cottages) you are going to get. 2. There are some restrictions. MAINLY….any real pine wood…..has to stay. The wood paneling, DOES NOT. 3. Each cottage has a target market, we are aiming to attract in the years to come. In addition to this rules we must also have at least two people stay at the cottage for the entire week, there will be daily challenges that, if we win, could find us getting extra paint, fabric, etc. and, we must be on-site in the early evening to let our judges know what we are planning and get approval.
So, when you think of renting a cottage, what do you look for? Are you concerned about style? Do you want everything included or is bringing your own bedding OK.? If you have a young family, is water frontage a concern? Are you more likely to go as a family, a group of friends, with another couple or, just as a couple? What amenities are you likely to be most interested in?
While we’re at the cottage we’ll be posting regularly on https://www.facebook.com/accesshomestaging I hope you’ll follow along and see what great things we’re up to.
