If you've been following along on the update of the 1940's duplex you know we're getting close to completing the smaller side of this property. The two units share a common foyer and entrance and then have their separate entrances.  This photo shows looking from the "B" unit's door to the "A" unit's door.  Hang on it isn't pretty!  These units are the same floor plan, but this unit has an additional den and screened porch. These are large units with nine foot ceilings, hardwood floors throughout and extensive molding. 
Living room with hardwood floors- notice the same yellow is in this unit as the "B" unit, but no one knows who painted it. This tenant did live in the other side first. I have my theory. How about you?

 The Den

More pet stained floors and some type of built in for the den
Dining room with three dogs and a cat in what was supposed to a no pet unit. 
The French doors leading into the dining room from the screened porch- broken window pane, etc. 
Large screened porch
Leaking water on the kitchen floor- major yuck! 
The kitchen
Laundry room
Upstairs Bathroom
Guest Bedroom
Master Bedroom with the same pet stains on the hardwood floors that the "B" side had.

Remember, Dad has never refused to make a repair or do anything the management asked him to do.  He trusted that they were maintaining this home.
  As you can see there is no way we can complete an update of this unit with anyone living in it; therefore, I had to ask the tenant to move out.
I'm over the shock of seeing the condition of this unit and ready to move forward with the repairs and updates.
 Just remember there is one more unit, the garage apartment.
