Had lunch yesterday with a friend at Smoke Daddy which is one of my favorite bbq joints in the city. The ribs were just what the doctor ordered for the hang over I was nursing. After lunch, I headed back to my friend’s condo to help her pack up her living/dining area. Despite the fact that the condo is barely a year old, the wood floor already needed to be refinished due to poor workmanship the first time around. Finding space to put her stuff was not easy. From what I’ve seen with many of the new construction condos, storage space seems to be in limited supply. This issue reared its head again with another friend who I was supposed to help today. She just moved into her new condo yesterday, and she postponed my helping her today as she has already run out of storage space even though she still had many things to put away. Yet again, her building is new construction. With that in mind, when it’s my turn to buy, I’m really going to have to look for a place that has adequate closets or storage facilities. That might mean staring clear of some of these newer buildings with their lavish features that are going up all over the city. In the end that might be a good things as the prices wanted for some of these places is simply unreal.
