Re: shed for row house
#1
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


Hi. I ordered mine from a company called cedarsheds international.

It came in 8 or 10 flat pieces on a pallet and had to be assembled by me, but it was a fun project. The delivery company dropped it off on the sidewalk and I carried the pieces through the house to the backyard and assembled it there. It came with all the hardware. Needed a screwdriver/drill, and would probably have gone quicker with another person to help. Would order from them again.

Hope this helps.

Re: NJ Transit Bus 126 Line - Hamilton Park Stop

Not too shy to talk


Hi. I use it sometimes. It?s 3 zones to port authority.
I find it is not always on schedule, but pretty close.
I take the one that comes at about 8:50 and it drops off in port authority at about 9:30. It?s the last bus in the morning and sometimes it has been a no-show.

Coming back to Hamilton Park on the bus is a bit more unpredictable. There are two 126 lines at port authority (you want the one for Willow Ave, if I recall) And the lines to get on the bus can be long. Worse, only some of the busses that go down Willow Ave actually go to Hamilton park, so you will have to wait on the long line, and then, when you get to the gate, you may have to wait for one or more busses to go by before one that goes to Hamilton Park gets there. (It will say Hamilton Park). Also, you need a three zone ticket to come from nyc - cash is not accepted on the bus at port authority.

We used them to refinish/repair our parquet floors and they were great.
Extremely knowledgeable - and helped us preserve floors we were afraid we would have to replace.

Re: A&P bankruptcy

The paper only listed the local stores with prospective buyers.
According to the bankruptcy pleadings, there are approximately 175 stores without buyers. Anyone interested can read the bankruptcy pleadings for free at A&P/Pathmark at:

https://cases.primeclerk.com/aptea/Home-DocketInfo

The motion to authorize sale procedures (which is docket number 27) spells it out. It breaks the stores into three tiers.

Tier I stores are apparently the best assets and lists the stores that have a prospective purchaser. The store on 18th street is a Tier I store, and has a purchaser. But the sale is subject to higher and better offers.

Tier II stores do not have a purchaser, but are going to be marketed for auction -- or closed if they can't find a buyer. The Pathmark on Grand St. is listed as a Tier II store, along with 150 other properties.

Tier III stores are the ones that they are not even going to bother trying to sell. There are only 25 of them.

The A&P on 18th Street is slated to be sold to ACME.

The Pathmark on Grand is slated to be sold at auction - they did not find a buyer for that store prior to the chapter 11 filing.

Found - Cufflink

I found a very nice silver "clockwork" cufflink on Erie street at 3rd street this morning. Someone probably wants it back.

It says "Penny Black - Forty" on the back.

PM me if it belongs to you.

A stop sign on 8th at Jersey Ave could prevent accidents like this. For drivers approaching the park on Jersey Ave, the instinct is to look right, then turn left quickly because anyone approaching from the right on 8th does not have to stop.

Our neighbors across the river are finally discovering what the Australians evidently figured out a few years ago, and what those of us who have lived in DTJC for years have known all along - this is a great place to live, and getting better with each passing year.

It looks like the less expensive one is a top floor 3BR apartment, and the more expensive one is a whole 3 story house.

To some people, paying a premium for a whole house might be well worth the difference in rent.

Re: Can anyone recommend a great home inspector?
#18
Not too shy to talk
Not too shy to talk


I also used John Moss. He identified a couple of potential problems and created a nice report. I remember he blasted the heat (it was mid summer), turned on all the faucets, checked all the outlets, checked the appliances, got up on the roof. I had the report via pdf in a day or so, and a nice color copy in the mail.

It is well worth it to get a good inspector for a big purchase. I think it was about $400 or $500 (a few years ago), which is not a lot in the grand scheme of things, plus he did a pest inspection (termites), required by the mortgage company. An excellent report may help you negotiate the price down based on latent defects, such as faulty wiring or plumbing. Not to mention that it can help you avoid buying a house that's gonna fall down.

Good luck, and let us know how your experience was.

Re: Central heat and cooling.

Parkman,

Thank you for your post. It is very, very helpful.
I will give Air-Aton a call.

The two contractors mentioned in my original post came to give me an estimate and told me that UNICO was going to be a difficult installation (one said he probably couldn?t do it at all). I think the best I might hope for is a UNICO on the top 2 floors and a Sanyo-type split system on the ground floor (which is where my kitchen/dining area is), as there is really no channel for even the most limited ductwork from top to bottom. Perhaps Air-Aton will have better ideas.

Again, thank you.

Anyone else with thoughts or advice?
Parkman set the bar pretty high, but feel free to chime in.

Tim

I am considering putting central air in an old townhouse this year. The house has been recently rennovated, but they did not install AC. The house is 3 floors and has no ductwork.

I am interested if anyone has any experience (good or bad) with Integrate Comfort Systems, Inc. (ICS) in Belleville and/or All Seasons Mechanical.

Also - does anyone have a UNICO system in thier house, and, if so, who installed it and would you recommend them?

Many thanks,
Tim
