There is scraping of squeaky
fiddles in the dark rooms, and cracked old voices sing long-forgotten
songs. Even the blind landlord rejoices, for much of the money goes
into his coffers. So much emphasis is place on climate change and basically none on the dangers and disgust of what plastics produce in our environment.
Add furnishings and decorative elements to finish things off. Then, step back, admire your work and enjoy your new, hassle-free outdoor space. Plus, if the ground is unlevel, your swingset may tip, potentially causing serious injury. Here are several videos showing how to do that for a woodchip surface or artificial grass surface. The dirt inside the foundation perimeter needs to be level and 4” below the top of the wooden perimeter (learn more here). This can easily be done by taking a 2×4 and laying it across each side of the foundation; then placing a level on top.
Step two – Paint
This is the time when you start removing fixtures, replacing them with new ones, and restoring the space to its original condition. There are several things you should know before you begin the process of stripping out a space. First, know the difference between a strip-out and a clean-out. A strip-out is the removal and replacement of all old fixtures. A clean-out is the removal of all items that don’t belong to you, such as items that were left behind by former tenants.

Corner tenements may cover all of the lot, except 4 feet at the rear. Tenements in the block may only cover seventy-eight per cent. They must have a rear yard 10 feet wide, and air-shafts or open. Read more about Soft strip demolition here. courts equal to twelve per cent.
And conveniently the California ADU laws do not allow ADUs over two stories high, so building an ADU anywhere in California does not require an Architect. But even though you do not need an Architect, most cities do require that your plans be reviewed and stamped by a Structural Engineer to ensure they are structurally sound. The ADU I am building will be used as a rental, so I wanted to maximize my return on investment. With that as my primary motivation I chose to design and build the largest ADU that was allowed under the City of Los Angeles’ ADU Ordinance.
The privilege to sit all night on a chair, or
sleep on a table, or in a barrel, goes with each round of drinks. Generally an Italian, sometimes a negro, occasionally a woman, “runs”
the dive. Their customers, alike homeless and hopeless in their utter
wretchedness, are the professional tramps, and these only. The meanest
thief is infinitely above the stale-beer level.
It is important to factor demolition costs into the budget if there are existing buildings or parts of buildings to demolish. Commercial demolition costs an average of $4 to $8 per square foot. This cost is dependent on location and type of materials. Hiring a mason for a mall construction project costs $20 – $50 per hour or $10 to $15 per square foot.
An instance came under my notice in which valuable property had been
well-nigh ruined by being made the thoroughfare of thieves by night
and by day. They had chosen it because of a passage that led through
the block by way of several connecting halls and yards. The place
came soon to be known as “Murderers Alley.” Complaint was made to the
Board of Health, as a last resort, of the condition of the property. The practical inspector who was sent to report upon it suggested to
the owner that he build a brick-wall in a place where it would shut
off communication between the streets, and he took the advice. Within
the brief space of a few months the house changed character entirely,
and became as decent as it had been before the convenient runway was
discovered. With these simple preliminaries the outcast boy may enter.
