How to calculate the cost basis on a rental investment property?

I own a rental investment property and remodeled/upgraded some furniture to improve the condition of the cabin thus increasing bookings and marketability. Can I record these purchases as increases to my cost basis in the asset account? When the cabin gets sold all furnishings stay with the cabin.

    The furniture would be added as a separate Asset or expensed.

    You should read IRS Publication 527 for tax treatment of furniture and everything else related to residential rental property.
