“Since moving from Milwaukee, I’ve struggled to find an affordable shop space for metalwork – mostly making furniture and sculpture – some old bicycle stuff. It’s one thing I do miss. Love everything else about living in DC.

I wonder if there are other people in the same position in the District. I’ve looked into the maker spaces, but long for something a little bit more focused and with easier access. I’d love to find a few people willing to go in on a shared space, shared equipment and a little bit of spirit for collaborative or community projects. I’d be willing to devote time and resources to get the ball rolling if others are into it. Of course, if something already exists, I’d really appreciate any leads.”

liability
Photo by PoPville flickr user Ted Eytan

“I live in a condo building and recently some neighbors have had windows shattered by kids throwing rocks (their windows are on the alley). It was suggested that they just put up a sign that the alley that there is a camera until one is installed, but the management company said we could be held liable if there is a problem in the alley and no camera is actually there to film it (like someone being beat up.) That doesn’t seem correct to me – I am curious if anyone else has heard of this or experienced this issue in the past. Thanks!”

“I live in a group house and my landlord is renewing the one-year leases for all of our roommates with the exception of one because he wants his friend to move into her room. She hasn’t violated any house rules so there’s no retaliatory action involved. Does he have the right to refuse her lease renewal?”

“I understand that in general with joint several liability in a group house lease agreement, the landlord can hold any or all of the tenants responsible for unpaid rent.

In our current situation, 3 of us are moving out of a 4-bedroom house, leaving the 4th responsible for filling the rooms. We’ve been helping to fill the rooms, but it looks like some may not get filled with viable tenants by the end of the month. The landlord already said he’d be holding the remaining tenant responsible if that’s the case. Is there any recourse here?

Everything I read about joint and several liability deals with cases of other tenants not paying rent, not cases of multiple roommates who’d been on a month-to-month basis leaving. It just seems unreasonable to expect someone to be responsible for filling 3 rooms regardless of circumstances. Any help would be appreciated.”

“I’m hoping to convert my small back yard (roughly 12′ x 12′) into a patio, and am hoping to have the work done in the next 4-6 weeks. I live in Kingman Park. Does anyone have a good recommendation for a contractor or handyman they’ve used?

Thanks!”

“I need to get all the the electrical and plumbing rerouted in my basement so that I can get several joists sistered. It’ll also help down the line if/when we finish the basement properly.

Any recommendations for architects would do something relatively small like this?

Thanks!”

“Can someone recommend movers for a very small (1-2 hour) job? We have a couch in storage that we want moved to our house. We want it placed upstairs, and it’s a tricky space that I expect will be difficult. Because of that, I’d prefer to use movers that are licensed and insured (as opposed to Task Rabbit, etc.) Thanks for any ideas!”

permits

“We are under contract with a house in the city and have discovered that permits were applied for but never issued. Our seller is contractually obligated to get the permits, but we think it might be easier to get additional seller credits, a more robust warranty, etc.

My question is this: Does anyone have experience owning an unpermitted home?”

“Well, she was living there for quite some time, but now there is no trace of her. She is a small woman with a braid across the top of her head; quiet and keeps to herself, often reading a book on a folding chair by her encampment. I have often wondered about her but now am worried.”
