House Manual and Instructions
We take good care of this home and expect the same from our guests. Please let the owner know if there is any problem or if you need anything.
You most likely will find that entering and exiting is most convenient from the back door. The key works on both the knob lock and the deadbolt lock on the door. The front door sticks a little but you certainly may use that entry way if you like.
If you have a compact vehicle, you are welcome to park it in the garage. Let the owner know and she will provide you with the garage door opener.
The thermostat for temperature control is in the hallway. Please be considerate and turn lights off when you leave. Of course, if you expect to return to the house after dark, it's fine to leave the outside light on.
To operate the garbage disposal, press the button next to the kitchen faucet. (Place large items in trash, please.)
To operate the dishwasher, simply load the dirty dishes and add a tablet (under the sink). Press the On/Off Power button and then select Start. Immediately close the door and it will start. It takes about an hour or so to complete a cycle.
To operate the washer/dryer unit, the control for the washer is on the left. There are soap packets beside the washer/dryer unit. Drop one in at the start of the wash. Select the water temperature and the load size. The dryer control is on the right. Select the drying time or level of dryness for the load.
If you want to plug an HDMI device into the TV, there are extra outlets for your use in the mantle. (Do not remove the mounted TV.)
Fresh linens are in the linen closet in the hallway. There is also an iron, steamer and lint remover there.
The wi-fi login is Hope House and the password is livelung.
The ironing board is built into the wall in the hallway.
A hair dryer is in each bathroom.
The gas fireplace in the living room is easy to operate. Simply run the knob on the right side just beside the logs and the gas logs will ignite. (Do not leave gas logs on unattended.)
Vacuum cleaner, broom and mop are all in the linen closet in the hallway. There is also an iRoomba in the living room.
The trash pick up is early Wednesday morning. You do not have to put the trash out, but the owner or her husband may come around to do so if the can is not already out on the curb Tuesday evening.
There is a security warning system that will give you a warning when a door is opened. Do not taper with the system. If the alarm sounds enter the code 1313 to disarm. The system is only to notify guests when a door is opened.
Please let the owner know if there is any problem with anything.
PS. We named this house the Hope House because the house continues to be a blessing. We host monthly cancer support meetings here. Also, we are planting the Hope Butterfly Garden which should be blooming in 2019!
