I am currently investigating second homes using interview, survey, ethnographic, and textual sources. A preview of the research process, with a focus on how the issue of short-term rentals and vacation homes is playing out in Walla Walla, Washington, can be seen here. Some elaboration of my questions are discussed in this blog post I wrote about vacation homes and the sharing economy.

If you are interested in this issue or want to know more, either as a homeowner/renter or stakeholder, feel free to contact me via the contact form on this website.
