House Rules
Pets Allowed: No
Smoking Allowed: No
Kid Friendly: Yes
Please respect the house as if it's your home (since it's my primary home). Accidents happen; if something breaks please let me know. (Someone cut a drip hose and two potted Japanese maple trees died. Someone else broke and threw away the ironing board and I didn't notice for a month on a morning I really needed it.) It would have been better to know about those in real time.
