Mock, I'd love it if my oven was avocado green but it's Brady Bunch brown. The oven is immaculate, it's like no one's ever used it. The stove top however, is horrendous. It was filthy when I moved in. We figured we'd be able to clean it but even the toughest of cleaners can't help it. The previous tenant was Chinese and wok-ed everything so there was literally grease dripping down the paneled wall that would not go away and the oven hood still drips grease occasionally - 8 years later! I've had maintenance in to clean it a few times but they can't do much short of replacing it and it can't be replaced coz they don't make the parts anymore. I believe this area is the source of my bug issue and will not be fully resolved until the room is demo-ed. When I moved in you could choose renovated or non and I chose non coz it's cheaper but these days they automatically renovate when you move out so most units have newer kitchens and bathrooms than mine. I thought it was a good deal back then but now I feel like for the rent I'm paying I should have something newer. They've had people sue over damage to their personal items during renovations in the past so they will no longer renovate an apt that someone is living in. I've kind of begged them but they still won't. They really just rip everything to shreds and they bring all the new stuff through the living room so I can see them damaging stuff & it wouldn't be pretty. They suggest I move to a renovated unit but that's a lot of work and money and I'm happy with my current space except for the hideous state of the kitchen.LauraK wrote:SW, your tree is beautiful. Why isn't it up this year? (Though I admit I haven't been as "with it" on decorating for any of the holidays this year myself....)
I also noticed the oven door right away. Our stove was like that in the apt I grew up in. I always thought it would blow up when I'd light it, lol.
I think they should renovate while you're in there if you want them to! Your rent better be cheaper than your renovated neighbors! *shakes fist*
