Get a new bed first for residence (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

cottage

Here is my best explanation:

'residence' is the definition.

'get a new bed first' is the subsidiary indication.

'new' indicates anagramming the letters.

'bed' becomes 'cot' (cot is a kind of bed).

'first' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).

'get'+'a'='geta'

'geta' is an anagram of 'tage'.

'tage' after 'cot' is 'cottage'.

'for' is the link.

(Other definitions for cottage that I've seen before include "Small house with a single storey", "Small home", "Cheese pie industries all may chase this", "Small one-storied house", "building", "Small single-storey dwelling", "small house", "Modest accommodation", "Country residence" and "Small place".)
