Advice on Kitchen/Bathroom Renovations

Posting on behalf of Rebecca D'Andrea

Ben and I are planning to renovate our kitchen within the next 6 months and would LOVE to talk to other people in the building that have done similar renovations.  Our kitchen, undoubtedly similar to other kitchens in the building, is small and has odd measurements due to bulk heads (hiding ducts or pipes--I'm not sure!) above.  I'm curious to see other renovated kitchens (and baths) to get an idea of what may be possible. 

Want to share your experience with Ben and Rebecca? Shoot them an e-mail.

Have a message you'd like to share with the other residents - for now email while we work to open up the bulletin board functionality.

Sept. Board Updates: Fire Escape, Laundry and more

Delays with Fire Escape Scraping/Painting Project
You may have noticed that the fire escape project abruptly stopped soon after it started. Unfortuantely, we had to fire the contractors, which is why the work is on hold. We will make further announcements to let people know when our new contractors are about to begin work. We apologize for the delay, but we want to make sure the job is done correctly.

Laundry Guidance
There is a new sign in the laundry room that suggests a regular dryer load should take 35 minutes. It also says notifies residents that they should remove their laundry from a machine within 10 minutes of the end of a cycle, or else another resident may remove the laundry to a folding table. This 10-minute rule signage was an idea brought up at last year's shareholder meeting by one of our residents.

We installed an automatic motion sensor for the light in the laundry room which should save us some money on our electric bill.

Boiler Replacement
The boiler project is progressing, as the boiler engineer has submitted his specific plans to us and the board is reviewing it.

Parking Waiting List
A parking spot is becoming available and will be assigned to the person in the top slot of the waiting list. Everyone else on the waiting will therefore be moved one slot closer to getting a spot. As a reminder, if you would like to check your status or put your name on the list, visit the parking waiting list page.
