Three Line Tales — A Tidy Profit

She invested her inheritance on a three-building, nine unit complex right on the canal in the seaside resort town.

She spent some more money sprucing up the tired interiors and painted the three buildings, one orange, one lime green, and one salmon.

She put the two of the three buildings — the orange one and the lime green one — up for sale and they sold quite quickly, earning her a tidy profit on her investment, and a place for her to live essentially for free in the salmon-colored building.
