one fat snowflake

January 21st, 2013 at 06:32 pm

I'm not playing the snowflake challenge particularly, but a big fat one came to me this last Saturday. One of the other condo tenants approached me about renting my interior garage parking space. Since I don't have a car and for the moment am willing to go carless, well yay, the parking space now is an asset. Asking around - the going rate seems to be about 100$/month.

The only issue I see is I have talked to a contractor about renovating my 1980s condo kitchen, and we talked about the parking space as a launch pad for materials - it would be much easier, safer, better for the materials in question if they were semi-inside on my parking space where the sub contractors can pull them when needed. Of course, I'd need to approach both the condo board and my possible parking space rentor about it.

There was a hitch in the sectional - just like amino acids, they have an asymetric handedness (left hand vs right hand). And just like amino acids, the left handed version is common, while the right hand is either toxic (as in amino acids) or has to be special ordered (as in my right-handed sectional). So I've bought the chairs first, then I disperse them to their corners when the sectional comes. None of these chairs are going to get heavy duty use for long periods of time, so I've cheaped out on them.

Discovered as I checked my Drp stocks that two of my stocks migrated from one transfer agent to another. Hadn't run across that before. All to the good frankly - the fewer transfer agents, the fewer passwords I'd have to remember.

    We rent out our parking space -- $85 per month! Not bad at all. It's a further deterrent for ever getting our own car, because along with all the costs we'd also need to factor in the loss of rental income.

    Wow. And I declined to rent a space for $60 a month. Not a garage, though, just a space in the alley.

    I got a call back - 100$ was too rich for her blood. Didn't seem to want to dicker either. We'll see - she might ask again and I might drop my price. Around here its still more common to have 2 cars needing spaces than 0 cars with a space.
