For years my family has been in the motel business.
We had seventeen rooms and an affixed bar with the business, it had been in the family for over 25 years and then we wanted to retire.
My town is too small to entirely support a motel business, and basically it had stayed afloat due to the bar. What I wanted to do was convert the motel business into an office space rental complex. There are a lot of corporations coming into the village that need office spaces, and our town simply doesn’t have the room to build big office buildings and there is nowhere to rent. I looked around online on how to convert my motel rooms into office spaces. I was fortunate and found that there is a business that does that. I called them up immediately and talked about making my building into an office rental facility. The people were amazing at what they did. I talked to a building planner and she drew up all the ideas I came up with, rather than 17 small motel rooms, it is 8 large office buildings. The showers were ripped out and now there are only toilets. The bar is no longer a bar, but a major office space for perhaps a boss to rent out. A lot of the flooring and windows were replaced with current too. The building has finally been remodeled and looks amazing. I can’t wait to put out there that I have office spaces for rent. I know I am going to get a lot of business. Maybe I can hand over this new business or sell it easier so I can retire now.
