Here are some pictures of the duplexes that we are now staying in. We went from the bright turquoise paint to a nice neutral color that blends in with the trees.
View of the Duplexes from the Hospital Parking Lot
|The kitchen is in the section with the little wholes for windows.|
|To make it brighter in the kitchen we were able to put in real windows|
Living Room Area
|This view is looking from the living room into|
the dining room and the doorway to the kitchen.
|Same view but with new tile, fresh paint, |
new kitchenwindow and ikea furniture!
|Same space but instead of a wooden divider|
it is left open or a curtain can enclose
the "room." Just enough space to put a full size
|From the living room looking into half of|
the room that is sectioned off for a 2nd bedroom
2nd Bedroom/Living Room
|Looking from the dining room into|
the living room/2nd bedroom

between the living room and dining room
The Living Room
|Jaunito working hard in the section designated for the living room|
|Our new furnished living room complete with decorations and our cat!|
There is just enough room to put a small couch and chair and then
the other half of the room is the bedroom.
|One of the kitchens before new paint but after the windows were installed.|
Believe it or not, it was originally worse than this because of dark lighting and black paint.
It was a 7'x7' cave
|Still a 7'x7' kitchen, yet there is light, counters, big window,|
sink and a stove...plus shelving! What a blessing!!!
|One of the master bedrooms with multiple layers of paint. The|
"after" picture below is of a different bedroom but is the mirror-image
to this picture.
|Our new ikea queen size bed that just fits into the bedroom|
The Final Product
|View of the front of one of the duplexes. Divide it down the middle|
between the kitchen windows and there you have living space for 2 people in each side.
