The space
This house is a classic Techbuilt home built in 1955 by Earlham college professors. These homes are sometimes referred to the Mid-century marvels. The first floor apartment is partly underground and separate from the rental space. Outside siding is cedar and inside has wood panelling throughout.

There is baseboard hot water heat which does not dry the air out as much as conventional furnaces. There is also the forced air between rooms which is a health safety factor from viral infections.

There is lots of natural light with large windows at both ends of the apartment and all along the sides.

The apartment can be one large open room, but the master bedroom can be sectioned off with a folding door.
Master bedroom has a standard double mattress bed.
There is a single bed in the living room.
An extra-long sofa (7 feet x 22 inches) is in the living room.
A spare double mattress is behind the sofa and can be moved to the floor for extra bedding.

Guest self-regulate heat & air conditioner (micro-duct through the wall unit).
No kitchen (yet), but the "pantry" has large toaster oven, microwave, coffee maker and separate tea maker, crockpot, refrigerator, dishes and silverware.

Covid Measures and Sanitation
This is a separate, secure apartment; there is no shared space with your host or other guests.
No forced-air central air ducts. The heat is baseboard water, in wall heater/ac and oil filled space heaters.
Towels and sheets are:
• Put in plastic bags for 4 days before washing. This kills the Covid virus.
• Steam washed in a new Maytag washer.
• Tables, hardwood floors and other surfaces are sanitized.
Your host is a health care professional and trained in Covid protection procedures
