We had a telephone call from a doctor asking to reserve the apartment for them. This was the third call within an hour we posted our advertisement on a premier classified advertisement website in Sri Lanka. They were on the way. We were happily waiting. We have all reasons to enjoy it. This is how we started. ![108.jpg](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmU64dJoxU6KdL16XNqxqSzN7Qa5MF2FHxULccdN67azg5/108.jpg) **Create a pleasant environment was our task. Fabriated a simple partition, provided a simple settee, Wall pictures and uncommon wall lamps** This section of the floor has the view of Nuwarawewa. It’s nearly 50m from the Nuwarawewa lake boundary. We had an idea for the Homestay concept but the non-availability of capital and time to be dedicated for the desired work was not sufficient. This section of the home consists of a small-sized room with an attached bathroom, mini pantry, living and dining area, and a large balcony. The purpose of the balcony is to enjoy the beautiful view of Nuwarawewa Lake. ![image.png](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmSiRbvsx8FG6DPUzKCdbuTQWXsa4bJoQRH6p1wHhffaN6/image.png) **picturesque view of Nuwarawewa Lake. Mihintale Chetiya can be seen in the distance** Our target group was the professionals who arrive in Anuradhapura for short-term assignments. Especially doctors who come to their higher studies at Anuradhapura Teaching Hospitals, Researchers, people who practice mediation at sacred city areas like this. The main problem encountered was the distance to the city limit. Our place is located about 4 Km from the hospital junction. It is nearly a mile from the main road too. No public transport available on this road. We have to depend upon individual transport systems. Therefore one condition we adhered was the persons who want to reserve this place should have their transport facility. ![110.jpg](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmYY98BktJmnBg4AUGsYeNMRx8PqK5LZaKACPg7qhWSZpg/110.jpg) **Small room with attached bathroom have tranquil environment** We listed the basic requirements. 1.0 King size bed with mattress 2.0 Wardrobe 3.0 Clothe rack 4.0 Modern bathroom with hot water facility 5.0 Mini kitchen with pantry cupboards, gas hob, sink, washing machine, etc 6.0 Dining table complete set & settee or sofa 7.0 TV facility with the broadband connection 8.0 Separate water, electricity, entrance & parking facility. ![image.png](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmTvLKoYLHceykn61jCos2Z2QhbfaB5XK3ZgdZRKzBaKtT/image.png) **Mini pantry - Fine example for small area analysis and utilization** We fulfilled the basic requirements with minimum expenditure.

We fabricated and constructed a garage without damaging our greeny environment** Thank you so much.
