But Grandsons #1 and #2 are having none of calling it the Lotus House. The first time we went to view the property, they found a giant teddy bear that the owners were using to stage the garage apartment and immediately fell in love, so it's the Teddy House, as far as they're concerned.
When we made our offer, we asked that only two things convey: the teddy bear and a Japanese maple tree in a huge turquoise ceramic pot. The owners declined to leave either behind, so the search has begun for a suitably large replacement bear.
The search has also begun for furnishings for the garage apartment, which we plan to rent via Airbnb. (There are already other plans afoot for a fantastic space for me. You'll want to stay tuned for that.)
