Me too, I love that place and why it exists. Six fans??? I'd have thought just that two years ago but poverty helps creativity.
I save a lot on electricity just moving air in or out with fans. A box fan in my bathroom window sucks heated air from my bedroom. My TV and computer keep me warm in Winter but need exhaust in Summer. I add a small floor fan at the bedroom door to help.
The kitchen has a nice ceiling fan that's used to move cool air inside at night. I rarely need AC until late in the day if at all.
The owner's wife is a penny pincher but she's too posh Brit to even enter a discount store or Habitat. I saved her about $80 by using a HforH bathroom counter (cut down) rather than the low end crap at Lowes and Home Depot. That proved to be a mistake on my part. She never saw or cared about the counter, just where it came from.
