Do You Wanna Peek at the Garage Apartment?

Hi All,
Not too appealing from here, but let's open the door... Keep in mind I have not decorated, but I will get to it soon. Need to get my Dad on the mend from his double knee replacement, first.
The apartment is at the back of the garage. Darling daughter stayed back here over Christmas and my Uncle will stay here during the summer, for fair week...
The nook where my Granny's table sits...
I love the olden "Edison light" that I found at Home Depot over the table...
The kitchenette...
The other end with one of the beds from The Daisy Inn and daughter's Eyeore(sp?), I know she is 25, but Momma still puts a stuffed animal out for her when she comes home...
The bath with corner shower and pedestal sink...
And the other end. I made use of every inch of space...
A view from the bath... I will share this with you again, when I have decorated :) Hope you are all having a great Sunday and good week ahead!

  6. I told my youngest daughter yesterday that what I'd truly love to have is a garage apartment with my own garage underneath. We had one once, and it is one of my favorite spaces I've ever owned. Love to be lucky enough to find one. Or even just find a great one to rent someday if these loud college kids don't move!

  23. This looks like a space with TONS of potential when you get to decorate it. It's already very homey and cozy. I like the table and chairs and the light. Bet your guests love having a private spot just for them when they visit.

    I hope your dad has a speddy recovery and that all goes well for him. I dislocated my knee when I was a teen. Not the same thing, but I know knee surgery is no fun!

    Thanks so much for adding this post to my party and for including the link back. I really appreciate you coming, and I hope I'll see you again next week. Take care!

  29. This is a great week-end nest. When you want to be by yourself.

    I use to do that? Our cubby house is tinier but still cozy.

    I love the light and granny's dinner set. Lots of remembrance.

    Happy mid-week.

  36. Parking software condominium

    Free Parking Software for Town Houses, Condominiums, and Businesses Solves Parking Problems
    Searching for a parking space is such as frustrating routine activity for lots of people in cities all over the world. This search is burning over a million barrels of oil of the world each day. There are also 4-parking spaces every vehicle in the US and almost all streets are most of the time, empty, which leads to urban environments that are ironically doing far more to accommodate the vehicles than people. As the global population continuously urbanize, without a convenience-driven and well-planned retreat from cars, these sort of parking problems will worsen.
    http://webparkingsoftware.com software is the first step in the right decision. It involves using low-cost sensors, mobile phone-enabled, and real time data collection automated payment systems enabling people to reserve parking in advance or predict accurately where they can find a spot. When deployed as a system, free parking software thereby reduces car emissions in the urban centers by means of reducing the necessity for the people to circle the city blocks needlessly searching for parking. Furthermore, it permits the cities to manage their parking supply carefully.
    This free parking software is now being developed in many different states and cities around the United States and some other countries. For instance, in LA, smart meters and low-power sensors are tracking the occupancy of parking spaces across the Hollywood district, one of the most congested areas. The users will be able to access this occupancy data in order to determine the availability of the spots and then pay for them with their mobile phones. Other than the environmental benefits and lending convenience, free parking software is improving the utilization of the current parking, which lead to greater revenue for parking owners.
    These programs will be able to make great differences on a neighborhood level, but more widespread development and deployment is necessary for free parking software to change the cities and to contribute to the transportation sector pollution reductions greenhouse gas. One problem is that there are no citywide solutions all over the fragmented private and public parking providers. The occupancy data has a tendency to have many owners and is not accessible or standardized in a way that may enable software developers to turn into user-friendly applications. Thereby, individual smart parking efforts are so far successful locally, but uncoordinated, and operates in their own entrepreneurial or bureaucratic vacuums without a need to take gap between current free parking software and more widespread transportation system planning is an enormous missed opportunity for the cities to reduce the transportation related emissions.
    Moreover, free parking software has been hindered by a lack of insight into the complete benefits of this software, specifically when compared to the cost of building extra parking spaces. Lack of collaboration between communities with the parking software programs, as well as lack of coordination between hardware providers, municipalities, and developers is also contributing to the slower adoption of smart parking. Nevertheless, it is possible to overcome all these issues. Cities will be able further accelerate these advantages by means of updating the land use and building codes policies to reflect the reduced need for parking.
