one bedroom too many

The design is simple.


Almost Spartan.


A boxy living room with a kitchen to the side, and fronted by two bedrooms with a bathroom in between.


But I liked it the moment I saw it.  It was exactly the size a single guy could effectively use.  Maybe with one less bedroom, even.


Let me show you around.  But first things first.


Wednesday's post was topped by a photograph of the house's small courtyard.  Filled with landscaping, space for two vehicles (if the vehicles were parked by a parking lot attendant), and a laundry area.  The space would feel at home in Barcelona -- where I would feel at home, as well.


But you didn't stop by to see where my truck lives.  Let's talk about my space.


I had hoped to post about three photographs.  But Blogger is not a very photo-friendly program.  Plus my internet connection in this motel is slower than dialup.


You have seen the side of the living area where my computer is located -- and the bedroom next to it.  The photograph at the top of this post shows the rest of the place.  The living room.  The kitchen.


And there it is.  More space than a single guy could use.


On the other hand, I don't spend much time in the house.


We will take a look where I do spend a good deal of my time -- the garden.

Your apartment looks very nice. It seems it would be easy to keep up.

steve,

it looks very similar to the apt. we had in chacala my 2nd year there. we chose a 2 bedroom place since chris was with us. we had plenty of room. the best part about the kitchen was that we had an oven. can't remember if you have one or not.

enjoy your last few days in l.a.

Nice place, there is virtue in simplicity. I can't tell from the photo, but are there screens on the windows? I imagine living next to the laguna there would be many mosquitoes.

i am glad to know that I am not the only one that thinks that posting photos on is a pain. I love the new apartment.

Nice tour, and now it's time for YOU TO HIT THE ROAD! I am seriously contemplating a trip in a year or two back to the Guadalajara area. I got friends living out there, and I think the area is absolutely lovely.

I love the big window in the living room. And I'm very jealous of the window in your kitchen. Our house has 3 windows, 2 of which are very high in our bathroom. The other is in our bedroom. Of course, I'm not counting the little windows that are part of the front door. If we ever move from our current rental, I would love a place with more windows! :D
