Response from Nathan:

Thanks, Jennifer - you all were great! Next time please just let me know about your needs and wants and I'll be happy to accommodate you. Your comfort is my job and goal. While the listing explains Gregg & my schedules (cut & pasted below for reference), we can be very flexible to best suit your needs. We've hosted wedding parties many times and understand there are often special considerations.
"Shared house: Me ~M-F ~9a-5p / Gregg 1-2 nights/wk" & "Interaction with Guests: I work from my office in the basement most weekdays ~9am/9:00 to ~5pm/17:00, some weekends earlier in the day, and am available for guests by cell as needed. Detroit Loves You caretaker, Gregg Brazel, sleeps in his 2nd floor bedroom a few nights a week on average and is usually busy with work when at the house, but can also be available to assist guests. Gregg moved to Detroit from Chicago to design and build ecological shipping container structures and has been constructing Detroit Loves You improvements since April 2013."

Thanks, Amy! I'm so glad you enjoyed your time at Detroit Loves You. Please do come back. You're welcome any time, and you'll get to see home and neighborhood improvements made possible by your support.
Note to future guests: The hot water temperature is controlled by a knob on the hot water boiler in the basement, and may be set to any desired temperature. It should always by default be set to "typical": 120F/50C.
My apologies, Amy. In the future please just contact me with any issues and I'll be happy to take care of them for you immediately. Comfort is key!
