Adobe rental is ready! (Pictures)

For those who have been following the progress on the rentals...

The adobe rental is ready!  Thanks to everyone who cheered us on!

We still have some minor plumbing/painting work to finish off in the next couple days and some little odds and ends, but, basically, it's done.  We are now drafting an ad and getting the word out.

Here are some pics.  We think it turned out pretty good!

You will remember this apartment is located in an historic adobe building, across from the Tomebamba river.  The complex is over 100 years old. 

We added hot water, fixed the ceiling, added back another window in the living room (that had disappeared in years past), updated the kitchen with granite and tiles, added laundry facilities and better lighting, re-did the original hardwood floors (eucalyptus!), painted, patched, shopped up a storm and more!!

We learned alot about getting things done within the historic district...  special rules and restrictions and special approvals required. 

Living room (Chuck and Nancy H).  Thanks, Nancy W, for helping with some of these photos.

2 Bedrooms (1 queen and 2 twins)

Laundry porch (off kitchen).

Views from bedrooms

All the furniture and appliances are new. 

1 Bath with shower...

We're making good progress on the 2 units at the Fragata building, too.  More on those later (still targeting about Mar-Apr 2010.  These 2 are the wheelchair accessible ones.)
