A near-universal chore, washing dishes, is relatively
painless for home economics graduate Mrs. Dahl in a
disposal-equipped sink at the center of a Pullman-type
kitchen. Electricity is used for cooking and the small
kneel-down refrigerator to the right of the sink. That
is Eric, now seven months old, in the play-pen. This pic-
ture was taken across the living room from front door.
Study space for Per is a desk at one end of the living
room. This view is from the kitchen extension of the
L-shaped floor plan of the main room. In some larger
units, the second bedroom doubles as a study area.
Marge works three days a week at the UW Hospitals.
"There's enough storage space so that we have room
for a couple of empty cardboard boxes," said Mrs.
Dahl as she demonstrated the flexible doors which
screen off wardrobe and a roomy shelf area. Eric's crib
is behind the door at left. The apartments have small
tiled bathrooms and asphalt-tiled floors throughout.
