Hi and thank you for all you comments,
Yes I will look for the zoning, as far as the licence, that will not be a problem. I have a job (work for myself) and I dont intend to quit :)
Unfortunately where I live, there is no course available (I live on a small Island), but there is a book that I had fund, and I will look into it.
I fell in love with the house, but I'm not gonna rush too fast neither, I gonna do a maximum of research and I will certainely spend time on this site.
But If I may...
What bed size do you usually take? How much linen (per room) do you use? per exemple.... 3 set of sheets per year? I wanna make it very confort and very Pottery Barn. :).
Buy quality sheets at the outset and you won't have to replace them for years (3-5, possibly more). To keep you from going crazy with the laundry, buy 3 sets per bed. That gives you one on the bed, one in the wash and one in the cupboard. If you have 3 queen beds then you could get away with having 8 sets, not 9. But you always need to have spares. If you find something you really like, get more than you need because when you need them again you won't be able to find them. Get lots of extra pillowcases!
Can we guess? Small, partly French-speaking island in the Caribbean?

This is all high-quality advice. Where were you, Alibi, when I was starting out??

May I add---when you find a comforter you love, you must buy AT LEAST TWO SETS, comforter and shams...because the folks who spill stuff on the comforter NEVER check out early and it's only on the day that you have an early check-in. And by the way---don't buy ANYTHING that has to be dry cleaned. Around here, if it doesn't go in the regular wash, forget it.

Hi Innbloom... totally off topic but I have no other way. Can you click on "My Account" on the left side of the screen, then click the upper most "edit" tab and change your email address to one that works? I've been receiving a bunch of mail delivery rejections today and a few days ago saying that your email address is not functioning any longer.
Thanks.

Sorry 'bout that, Swirt. Done.

Not that small. And I assume about 5km from the Port of Spain as the bird flies? :)
