So, long story short, we’re going to be building a place from scratch near a beach in the southeast atlantic coast of the US and we expect to have lots of fellow techie and entrepreneur guests, so we’re gathering their suggestions and designing for them, to start with. However, that’s only a few dozen opinions. Since we would like to expand the circle and host host other digital nomads, individually or in small groups… your opinions would be fantastic to have as well. Be assured that they will be a part of the “wish list” that goes to the architects.
So if you were building a space from scratch can you tell us these sorts of things:
- How would you describe your ideal nomad setup?
- What features have you absolutely loved in the past?
- What have you disliked or even hated in other “nomad pads” in your travels?
- What are your deal breakers for “would never stay there”?
- What are your “nice to haves”?
- How should it be set up to accommodate both individuals and
- If “features” were to be built over time, what would you
want to see built first? (i.e. would it kill anyone if surfboard
storage racks were not built the first year? or whatever…)
- Do you prefer shared rooms or individual rooms or a mix?
- If shared, are there ways to make that more comfortable? Such as “partial walls” or screens? Or do you not care at all?
- Is there anything that would “blow your mind” or really make your
stay great… what’s on your “wish list”? (ok, within reason,
there’s a sensible budget, lol)
- Do eco features matter to you? Would you enjoy your stay more if you knew your power was solar?
- Are there any “house rules” that are “must haves” for you? Is there any way we can build things to specifically help/encourage adherence to those? (e.g. “there was always a battle for outlets so do this…” “here’s a picture of X place I stayed, they put the damn hotub right next to my room, it sucked, move it 30 feet away please!”)
- Anything we’ve missed?
Please be as specific as you wish, since we won’t be retrofitting an existing space… we’ve got the freedom to make it as close to “ideal” as budget and time allow.
Your suggestions will matter, a lot.
