Started Thinking About What It is Going to Take to Fix Up the Building

I have just now started thinking about what it is going to take to fix up the building. It is going to take some time to figure out what needs to be done, but of course there are some obvious things which have to be done and the big one is getting a new roof on the place. We have found a list of roofing companies in NYC and we are trying to figure out which one of them is going to be able to do the job at the best price. Of course if you do not have a sound roof you are going to end up with problems and this roof has been patched up several times in the past. Now it is time to start over again. Of course they just put a new layer of that stuff on there the last couple of times, but you can not go on doing that indefinitely. The reason is simple engineering.

A roof has a load bearing and that is how much weight you can have on it before it is going to give up and fall in on top of you. You can put a few layers of that stuff on top of each other, but at some point it starts to get to be too much for the structure to hold out against. The thing that usually happen is that you get a huge rain fail or a bunch of snow which all piles on top of the roof, which is already over stressed. Snow can be really heavy, especially if you have a really big snow one after the other..Of course last year you probably had a lot of roofs collapse under the weight of tons of snow, the stuff was piled up as high as rooftops.

My Cat and I Both Love Our New Place

I am in the middle of going to school, and living with roommates was becoming a problem. I take my schoolwork very seriously, while they spend a lot of time messing around and partying. I needed a place of my own quickly, and it needed to be affordable, too. One of my school counselors told me about Hernon Walk Apartments nearby, so I figured I would start looking there first.

I do not own a car, so it was important that I find a place that is on a bus line so that I can get to and from school, the store or anywhere else I need to go very easily. I own a cat, so I needed a pet-friendly place. I am also a young female, so a place that was safe is something that I have to keep in mind when living anywhere, too.

I spoke with the apartment manager at the place my school counselor told me about. I was a little worried about what the cost would be like, but was really surprised to learn that I could get a place for under $500 with one bedroom there. I thought I would be stuck with a studio apartment, but now I know differently. Best of all, they had two apartments available at that low price. I was paying that much just to live with roommates, so this was really good news to me. The apartments are also located near several bus stops.

I set up an appointment with apartment manager to look the place over. I fell in love with the place instantly. The complex is gated, which helped me feel right at home and secure. They allow pets and they even have a pond with ducks in it. The unit that I chose has a great view of the pond, so I put my application in right away because I knew my cat would love to sit in the window and watch the ducks. We have now been living here for a week, and I was right about the ducks and my pet!
