The move is complete, well sort of anyway. The house in New Jersey has been sold to an absolutely lovely family and the last truck has been unloaded into our new home in Florida. There is still much to unpack and put away. However, my thoughts are now turning to what I want to do to the new house. Perhaps one of the most challenging rooms (and I use that term loosely) is actually outside. It is a 9 by 14 foot walled, outside room with a screened roof. The floor is weed infested soil with a few wobbly concrete paving slabs on it. My children refer to it as the “Bin Laden” room.
I have no idea what its original purpose was. I don’t think it was ever intended for entertaining, because the entrance to it is through the master bathroom. Some friends have suggested that perhaps previous owners used it for growing illicit substances, nude sunbathing or both. They have dubbed it the “naked marijuana room” or NMR for short.
