We bought a second property named “the rental renovation” in April 2018 with the goal of creating two separate rental units. The upstairs 3-bedroom unit is rented to long-term tenants, and we stay in the 2-bedroom basement apartment part-time and AirBnB it too.
The whole house design scheme can be found in this post, and we basically just cleaned up the upstairs in order to make it nice and livable.

I tried to include images with the same vantage point/area – even though some spaces were sort of relocated (ie: the bathroom). Check out the before video tour here to see the full details.
Rental Renovation Exterior
We haven’t done too much to the exterior yet (or at least, that I’ve shared on the blog before) so stay tuned for more!
