Columbia Heights Basement Rental for Non-Profits

Hi Popville,

I have an unfinished legal basement space that I would like to renovate and rent to a non-profit. Can anyone give me some pointers on how I can attract a non-profit to rent the space. Should I renovate first and then put the space up for rent or get a non-profit tenant first and renovate with their input?

Any suggestions/information would be helpful. Thanks.

HandyMan with Ladder?

Hi Pop,
One of my window screens fell out and we aren’t able to get it back in from inside the house.  Does anyone know a handyman with a 2 story ladder that could help us get it back in.  Someone not too expensive; its a very simple job – just requires a long-ist ladder.
Thanks for any recommendations,
R. Peterson

Recommend a good, reasonable contractor?

Hi Pops,
I’m interested in turning my legal basement space into a 1 bedroom apartment.  The contractor I was initially working with wanted WAY too much for what is a very easy job.  Can anyone recommend a good “reasonable” contractor?
