“Can anyone with a historic home recommend a contractor that works in DC? I’m looking at window repair, stripping siding down to the original wood, and a few other things. I’ve found plenty of trade-specific references, but I’m looking for a general contractor versed in historic preservation.”

stolen-bike-2

“Hi, my friend’s bike was stolen today [Thursday] outside of her office on M and 20th downtown. She just moved to DC for an unpaid internship as a graduate student and can’t afford to replace it, so I was hoping the PoP community might help and keep an eye out for it–especially if it shows up online.

Frankly, I’m shocked that someone could have gotten away with clipping a bike lock in such a high traffic area … the Golden Triangle BID should be concerned about this.”

“Some poor sap put his computer on the top of his car and drove off. It flew of his car at the intersection of Mass and 6th NW. I picked it up – if you lost your Macbook, let me know! It covered with stickers, in a black case, and had a land survey in the case as well.”

“My family has a Petworth rowhouse in desperate need of a total remodel to be able to continue to rent it out.

We’ve been looking for contractors but so far have only found companies more suited to end-users and not quality rentals (think long lasting but less fancy finishes).

Any suggestions?”

“Checking to see if anyone has recommendations for a good local business that paints front porches for a reasonable price. House is in Petworth/Columbia Heights – and we just need the concrete stairs painted, as they’re starting to peel like a bad sunburn. Thanks in advance for any leads!”

“Someone left this cat behind on the street when she moved. (“Wish I could take her but they don’t allow cats where I’m going.”)

Poor little guy needs a home. We are full up here, but rather than leave him on the street, I’m going to have to take him to the shelter. But if anyone here is looking for a young orange cat, let’s talk before I take him.

He’s in the house right now. Apparently he was living inside until his former person put him on the porch and walked away.

shopping carts
Photo by PoPville flickr user Kevin Wolf

“We recently purchased a house in the neighborhood that includes a driveway off of the back yard. The driveway has open access from the street behind our house.

Even before we closed, we noticed a shopping cart parked in our driveway. We naively assumed that once we started parking a car in the driveway, the person parking the cart would get the hint and move the cart. No luck.

DPW now has visited our house on multiple occasions to remove one to two carts, from a variety of establishments. We usually get a single day/night of reprieve, and then a new one reappears.

They are always empty. They only seem to be used at night because they sit there empty in our driveway during the day.

Has anyone else had this problem? We feel like we are being punked or that we should be more fearful for our safety.

Any suggestions? Thanks!!

[We are in northern Columbia heights, a block from the intersection of Georgia and NH ave.

Another one appeared this morning.]”

“I’m looking for some feedback and/or recommendations for an EV charging station installer in the District. I know any electrician should be able to tackle this job, but I prefer to hear from someone that has installed a 240v station at their home and a installation cost ballpark. Also, I understand DC offers a $10k income tax credit towards the installation?”
