My mother-in-law has decided to rent her cottage while she is not using it, so she asked me to do a website for her. Since I was pressed for time, I decided to use a template from Themeforest. I just wanted a simple one page site so it would be easy to update. I also wanted to have an availability calendar that she could update easily. I found a simple PHP calendar script with a nice backend. It was easy to customize and works great.
While I would have preferred to have designed the site without a template, my time is somewhat limited right now with other freelance projects. I still think the site came out nice.
