I wish the back deck wasn’t a dark tomb. Not only is it covered, but it’s literally less than an inch from the neighboring building, so our half gets no sunlight at all. The neighbor’s half is away from the other building, so they get a small corner of sunlight, and naturally have a little container garden. I had to give up my tomato plants and move my herbs indoors (where they haven’t been doing as well) when we moved here.
I wish the management company wouldn’t be so stingy about installing blinds. When we moved in, there were none. When I called to ask where they were, they said they don’t normally install them at all (!), but would concede and do two rooms. I picked the living room and bedroom, since both have two windows apiece. But the dining room is also west facing (and only one lousy window!), and it gets HOT mid-afternoon when the sun shines in. And the kitchen opens to the back deck, so those would be the only windows where there’s a real chance of someone looking in (and seeing me puttering around naked).
On that note, I kinda wish our apartment was turned 90 degrees so most of the windows were south-facing.
Also, no recycling bins that I’ve found, even though it’s required by city ordinance. Sigh. And the laundry room has a grand total of 2 washers and dryers, for a building with 35+ apartments. Really?
On the whole it’s been very good though. Much better than my old apartment.
