No Smoking anywhere on property including the street, our neighbors are sensitive to smoke. Please do NOT spray hairspray or other synthetic scents or your own cleaning chemicals inside the house. If you are doing H&M in the main house, take the talent outside to spray hairspray (and close the doors) so it doesn’t blow back in. We have had major issues with this on previous shoots, where even after we requested not to spray hairspray in the house, they still did and it took months for the smell to go away and it got all over our curtains and plants all over everything and we couldn’t get rid of the smell. Our house is eco friendly so please honor this request, if you spray hairspray in either of our houses we will charge an extra $500 cleaning fee afterwards per house. Please use our own cleaning supplies that we have in the house, in the kitchen 2nd last to last cabinet. Parking - You can pull at least three cars into the longer part of the driveway. If you have a motorhome, please park it in front of the main house (2690). There is additional parking on bowers street (go out the front door of main house and turn left on edison and left on bowers street which is the next block) Park on only one side of Bowers street to start with and then if you need both sides you can use both sides. Please do not park in any of our neighbors spots or in areas where it says no parking. We have delicate wood countertops and furniture that has not been chemically treated. Please be sure to wipe down any water or anything else on the countertops after using them. Do not put anything hot on top of them without a trivet. Please use the silicone matts by the stove on top of the cutting boards to make tea, coffee, use oils, etc. You can also set drinks on the felt as well as the cutting boards on top of the countertops. Please be careful to not set down anything with oil on the countertops. Use plain water and a little dish soap on a dish rag to clean. You can also lay down work towels on the countertops if you are going to use them for catering. Wood furniture in bedroom and bathroom vanity is delicate to staining, please do not put any drinks or oils down on top of the nightstands or dresser and wipe off with a towel if you get water on them. Rugs (in Main house) We are normally a shoes off house in the main house, we have a lot of rugs because our Greyhound dog slides on the hardwood, so we fold up the rugs in the main house and put them behind the island before a shoot, if you want to pull them out for a shot, feel free to use them but please roll them back up when you are done with the shot. If rugs are pulled up you can wear shoes in the house. Please wipe off shoes if it is muddy outside. Work Towels Feel free to use work towels to clean up spills etc, these can get as dirty as you want. These are kept in the kitchen cupboards on the left side, 2nd to the left top cupboard. Trash If you generate more then one 13 gallon kitchen size trash bag per house on the shoot day, we charge $50 per extra bag of trash as our trash company charges us to pick up extra trash. You are welcome to take it with you or pay the extra per bag fee. Please tidy up upon departure, leave the house the way you found it. Our cleaners will come in and clean the house after the shoot, but please be respectful and put all trash and recycling in appropriate cans, put all furniture that was moved back into place, etc.
Immaculate and beautiful home for shooting, especially the bathroom and kitchen. Better than we had hoped and we had high expectations from the photos :) Gets amazing natural light! We will be shooting here again for sure.
