Problems with the New House

When my cousin Caesar bought a new house of his dreams he did not imagine how little that dream would last him. I went to visit him just started the move and really the house looked beautiful, was a two-storey, quite large and with ample spaces and provided with lots of light. Large windows also flooded the back of the house and gave a transparent access to the patio with a pool and a lot of field for my nephews to run.

The house was located in a residential neighborhood, with long streets and few houses on the street, with few people who walk around, low noise and almost no traffic. It was the dream neighborhood and the most beautiful house in that neighborhood. It seemed, because with the passing of days the house would begin to strip all those flaws that are not marked in the contract of purchase much less in the brochure of sale delivered smilingly by the realtor.

The new house had two floors and according to my cousin Caesar, the real estate had told him that the house was not new, but that had been completely refurbished, had no problems of humidity or soil and shout. He was in perfect condition. Which at first glance seemed, but then, once the move was finished and put everything in place, the days were going to be taking charge of showing the flaws.

The first of the problems started with the leaks. The first sign gave it the strange smell that they pronounced the things kept and that came from the basement, although the basement was totally empty and completely painted, had that image that give the new things, yet to the weeks a strange and strong smell began to Contagi AR the environment, my cousin Cesar thought at first that the smell came from some dead rodent, but then that undesirable smell was accompanied by small lumps of mold in the farthest parts of the light on the walls, under the staircase and on the wall put to the bathroom of Visi TA, the idea of water seepage began to haunt the head.

The mold was accompanied in the following days by some moisture on the walls of the basement and on the walls adjoining the bathroom of the garage, in time the humidity would seep so much that the paint layer would begin to break down as paper. My cousin immediately communicated with the Realtor, who pointed out to supervise the defects advised by Cesar.

He did not give much explanation but to take care of the repairs. Apparently the water pipes and sewer of the house had been too much spent and had generated leaks by all the routes, this had generated the humidity, the mold and the bad smells, generating thus some annoying two months later, time that lasted the repair the pipes and that turned the House of Dreams into an annoying and giddy place filled with walls and broken floors.

Buying a Properties in Vallecas

When you look for apartment, you look at many details, you are even willing to make certain concessions and give in to certain tastes or whims, but in what you definitely cannot make any concession, it is on the subject of security. Indeed, security cannot be underestimated or half a centimeter since even our lives can depend on it. This becomes much more important when we have children because one sometimes does not measure the danger, for more maturity than Tanga. Until one does not have a son, it does not know the real dimension of the word anguish. All these thoughts came to mind suddenly when in the news last week I saw that the locality of Vallecas is presenting a growing insecurity in its streets. Indeed, in the heart of Madrid, we can say, although it sounds strange, that the police are not present. According to several residents of Vallecas who were interviewed on the news, the Gendarmerie Shines for its absence and has practically abandoned positions in this locality. People are afraid to go to the streets because they claim that gangs have been formed in several sectors. This group of young people with serious behavioral problems come ravaging the district with their constant quarrels. The dispute, as in most of these cases, is for the supremacy of the neighborhood and in this process real battles are unleashed between one and the other side. The results are often fatal and end with the death of one or more of these gang members. Wounded and bruised there is always and what is not lacking is never the material damage in the properties of people who have nothing to do with the lawsuit. After one of these skirmishes, the glasses of the buildings are reduced to pieces and lie on the ground as mute and helpless witnesses of what happened.

Apartment for sale in Vallecas

I was very interested in this topic and I took the time to inquire with friends who live in these neighborhoods because of the fatalities of destiny really. Indeed, these people acquired their properties when Vallecas was a peaceful locality and was shown as a good option for immigrants coming from the cities of the interior of the country. Young people with many dreams, arrived in the late sixties and early seventies to the capital and soon populated forcing to grow upward. Certainly there was still living space in part of the capital and Vallecas became an option, even today there are opening properties but have seen reduced their selling value because of insecurity. At that time everything was happiness, commitment and hope and the mind did not pass the idea that the scenario would change later. Just imagine how you should feel that person who years ago bet on buying a house in Vallecas and now, with children on the slopes, must face a serious problem of insecurity. Maybe someone might think I’m exaggerating and dramatizing the fact from a single complaint. Well, it’s not that way. As I said lines above, I had the opportunity to converse with people directly affected in this problem and I can attest that the situation is as dramatic as Pinto.

I’ll tell them I talked to an old man named Guillermo. He is the father of a friend of the university and moved to Vallecas when his children took different paths. For this, Mr. Guillermo had been widowed and, having no greater need for space, moved to a small property in Vallecas under the modality of rent sale. You are now halfway through the transaction without knowing what to do. Give up the nearly ten years of contributions or stay to deal with insecurity daily. When I asked him if he had directly lived the insecurity of his neighborhood, Mr. Guillermo told me what happened to him a day he was returning home after meeting some contemporary friends with him. In Vallecas, Guillermo met weekly with three friends, was a kind of retirement club in which members enjoyed entertaining conversations in which they mixed current world problems and fresh anecdotes of the past. This gentleman tells Me that they listened to music by Edith Piaf or Javier Solís while they were conversing, but the important thing happened when I returned home, that midnight of a day Friday.

Guillermo did well in the final domino game he held with his companions, the conversation had been enjoyable as always and it was time to return home. Nothing of the other world, less than 600 meters separate him from his house and decided to walk while enjoying the gentle autumn breeze of these hours. The street was so quiet that I could hear his own footsteps as I refer and walked quietly, had already had news of the gangs that had formed but thought that by his house would never approach, had the background in his favor as the facts always They recorded no less than two miles away from their home. Guillermo relaxed and continued to walk, listening to his footsteps, but he soon began to feel warm voices that seemed to come from the direction he was walking. As he advanced, the shouting became clearer and when it was less than 200 meters to get to his home, he realized that a group of more than five people were sitting practically on the edge of the door of his house. I had not spotted them in the distance as the last few meters before arriving home were covered by a curve in the street. He tried to stop but almost instantly thought that gesture was going to put in fear and decided to continue with decision. When he was less than five meters from his house, and therefore of the Patota, he realized that they were rubbing liquor and pushing each other while arguing who knows what. Without looking at them, he went to the door of his property but one of the boys closed his pace and without a word began to Bolsiquearlo. Guillermo could do nothing but demand respect for his age, of course the petition was utterly dismissed and soon the other boys joined the feast. Within a few minutes, Guillermo ended up with his trousers fringed and penniless. Fortunately he was able to keep his keys and be able to enter his home.

The Child and His Space in The House

Definitely the subject of comfort in a house is very subjective. For some, this word is directly related to the space available to the interior of the property. A clear example of this is children. Indeed, I have noticed that the little ones like to enjoy the great spaces, of an inner garden more or less loose that allows them to develop fully their games, games that involve much movement and displacement through a certain space that Provide them with comfort and security at the same time. Although, to be honest, children are not too fixated on the issue of security, they are happy simply by playing free and proof of it is the face they put on when parents announce the end of the game and the start of home or school duties. They always ask for a few more minutes of play, they are hardly satisfied until they fall, which is very difficult because of the great vitality of most of them. But there is another point that concerns the child and the space of his own property and that the child adapts to what they offer. Indeed, there are children who come to the world and are members of a family that lives in a small apartment. They do not have a garden of their own and they must play the major games in the neighborhood park, however they are absolutely happy. In other words, I daresay they don’t even value their property, they just live in it. The issue lies in the round of compared, when the time comes when they receive the invitation of one of their friends and it is their turn to visit a house of larger dimensions than their own.

art space studio for children

When this day arrives, that same evening or night or, the next day, we receive a detailed description of the property of our son’s friend. Indeed, children have an amazing photographic memory and detail what they saw on their visit. In my case I had to receive this information from the mouth of one of the youngest daughters of my partner. The girl in question, just seven years old, told us at the table the Dream house she had visited the weekend in what was an invitation from girl to girl. I must say first that my partner lives in a small apartment of just two bedrooms in which one of them is occupied by her and the other for the girl. In addition to this, the room is quite small and is practically connected to the dining room in a single room. A small door connects to the kitchen and to the service room. Obviously the space of the bedrooms is also small and the girl has a small space to play. His room is full of toys that are crammed as they can in various furniture and dressers that shade the girl’s bed. With this point of reference was that my partner and I received the detailed description of her daughter. To begin with, he told us that the property he had to visit was not an apartment but a well-defined house, judging by the description he gave us of the interiors, I would say that it was a luxurious chalet, because the first thing he identified was a garden in the entrance with flower It is of all kinds in its perimeter and a gigantic window that announced what came after this.

The girl referred to us that when she entered, she felt like she was entering a modern castle. The roof was quite high and there were a lot of furniture posted on colorful and nurtured carpets. A large piano appeared in the middle of the room next to a fireplace made of varnished brick. On the inside, another huge garden opened its way over the back of the house, before it emptied into a playground for the game. In that courtyard, there was a basketball board in addition to another house, the German Shepherd House of the family. The second floor of the house was described as the most welcoming place in the world as the “owner” of the house, had two rooms, one of them destined to rest and the other used exclusively as a playroom. In the playroom, he had his own computer in addition to TV, DVD player and game console. The classic toys were a separate theme and the room in question was so spacious that it could house up to two dolls houses in natural size. The stuffed animals were on the agenda and could be counted by dozens. The description of my partner’s daughter was much more detailed but for reasons of space I can not recreate so in detail, but my intention was to note how each child seeks to be happy, regardless of the space that has touched to develop.

Air: Leeds-Bradford International Airport is located between Leeds and Bradford and has internal UK flights and flights to Europe, Egypt and Turkey.

Shopping

Leeds TransportSoutherners gasped when Harvey Nichols opened here, but Leeds takes shopping seriously and deserves its ‘Knightsbridge of the North’ reputation. There are over 1,000 stores in the city centre so you’ll be doing well to escape with your bank balance intact.

The broad pedestrianised Briggate, which runs gently downhill, is lined with independent stores, high street staples and some of the city’s best shopping arcades.

Arcades and shopping centres are big in Leeds – there are some fabulous historic examples, glittering and gilded, with marble floors, stained glass and magnificent decorative detailing.

Victoria Quarter: Superbly ornate Victorian arcade with a funky new glass entrance. Definitely upscale: Harvey Nicholls, Louis Vuitton, Vivienne Westwood, Fat Face, Ted Baker, Karen Millen, etc. Also a good spot for cakes and coffee.

Museums: Quite a few, including the intriguing National Museum of Arms and Armouries, where you can view everything from Samurai armour to a vast and astonishing suit of armour for an elephant.

Several mill museums, a medical museum, Leeds Art Gallery and the Henry Moore Institute. A little out of town, the magnificent Kirkstall Abbey is well worth a visit.

Cinema: The Light has 13 screens. Also cinemas in Headingley and Hyde Park.

Eating And Drinking

Leeds RestaurantsEating: Plenty to keep you busy, with food from every corner of the globe. In the city centre you’ll find lots of trendy bistros and sleek restaurant/bars – so if it’s sushi, shaved parmesan and the like you’re after, you won’t have far to go. Also more traditional fare available in more traditional surroundings.

Cafes: Leeds has embraced cafe culture so you won’t collapse in a sorry heap for want of a grand skinny latte or a vitamin-packed smoothie. The usual suspects (Starbucks etc) and lots of interesting independent places too (including juice bars).

Pubs: Again a great mix – from trendy bars with glass, marble, fancy lighting and leather sofas to more traditional pubs with proper pints and salt-of-the-earth regulars

Sports

Leeds SportsCricket at the Yorkshire County Cricket Club (Headingly); next door, the Leeds Rhinos (Rugby League) and Leeds Tykes (Rugby Union). Eland Road, of course, is home to Leeds United FC.
