I have been slow to update the blog here for various reasons. Primarily because I have been busy with work. Which is great, but I need to be better about putting at least one or two photos a week up here. Cause I know you are all waiting for my updates. Right?
Anyway speaking of updates I am posting more from the Weekly Rentals project I have been working on. To make a long story short the town and the motel owner have come to an amicable solution with regards to the residents. The owner promised to update the building so that it will qualify for long term stays. The town said they had no interest in evicting residents and held a housing workshop to try in an attempt to help the motel residents find something more stable. Life goes on at the motel for now.
I met Tiffany and her daughter on one of the my first visits to the motel. She would often hang out in the management office during the day and chat with the manager Deb. She has lived in the motel since October 2010 and is only able to remain because Deb has offered her reduced rent. When I last chatted with Tiffany she was pregnant again and still not working and told me that if she is forced out of the West Yarmouth Lodgings then her only other option would be a shelter.
