This is my apartment shop. It’s bedroom number 2 of 2 and I have to squeeze my dresser and clothes in too.

Welcome to lumberjocks. One question. How do you keep the sawdust out of the rest of the apartment?

Probably the most important thing is that it’s an old building with window unit ac and steam radiators. So there’s not any ductwork connecting the rooms. Also, I run a shop made exhaust fan pretty constantly. Dust in the rest of the house hasn’t been an issue.

It’s an apartment, but we own (a coop actually), so I’m not trying to destroy it ;).

You’re my hero, bro! You’re a property managers worst nightmare, but my hero all the same!

Actually, I was enjoying the apartment shop so much, I started thinking about a career change. Then I spent two years as co-op president. Unlike most folks, I found that super fun too. As a lawyer I spent my time doing damage control for clients with problems too big to solve. As coop president I dealt with equally ridiculous people, but at the end of the day, the entry system got installed and the windows got caulked and painted.

So I became a property manager full-time! When inspecting apartments, I’d be a hypocrite to complain about a drill press. Welding equipment? I’m not sure what we’re gonna do with that guy.

Have your say...
