This is a story of LB and the house. We have another friend KA and KA owns 2 houses on the same block 2 house apart. KA lives in one home and rented the other one out. He rented it to 2 guys that ended up trashing the house and not paying the rent. There was literally mounds of trash and an unkept house. After months and months the tenants were eventually evicted. Of course the house was not in rentable condition. Not to mention KA lost 7 months of rent. Now enter LB who is looking for a place to rent. KA says if you want to rent it I will rent it cheap to you, just help me clean it up. They agree and they get a dumpster and the work begins. It takes a couple weeks to clean, paint, tear up the carpets which are stench filled and spiff up the wood floors underneath.
LB is a type A personality, she is neat, organized and anal on cleaning. She has impecable taste and knows how to decorate. Picture spotless windows, not a spec of dirt on the floor and fresh flowers and candles on the tables. Zgallerie meets West Elm meets Anthropologie. A pure delight to visit. And LB likes to cook and entertain so there is always a good time going on. (to be continued...)
