Makeover Tuesday- 古坑民宿「田心12號」工作室 Fyntage Studio
The side house of Sweet House No.12, the finest B&B in Gukeng, Yunlin, is much older than the existing main house. It was rebuilt from a piggery to a bungalow house for my parents' wedding. The studio room was our family bedroom then. I still have the memory of 4 of my family sleeping in this room in my head, my younger sister (Mimi) and I were very little, baby sister (Fyn) hasn't born yet. There was always a mosquito net over the bed (no window screen back that time), a green iron-made fan at the corner, and a red potty pan under the bed. I remember that mom had used to let us urinate in the pan when we needed to go in the middle of night, then flushed it away the next morning.
The original main house was made by soil with straw, the tile roof was blown away by Typhoon Wayne in 1986, so we had to torn it down and built a concrete one. After then, the side house became a storeroom for decades.
In order to transform the room into Fyn's studio, we organized those piled stuffs and sealed the wall cracks. Moved in dad's old office desk, assembled great grandma's broken sawing machine with Fyn's electronic one, and "Fyntage Studio" has been successfully established!
