My neighbor who lives above us is doing major renovations to his apartment.  He has moved his bathroom from the middle of the house and relocated to the back of the house.  It is now above my small office area/hall closet area.  He is doing the work himself with the help of hired hands who are not licensed workers.  He has changed his mind about the "new" layout of his apartment numerous times as well as hiring/firing workers.  Because of the quality of work being done we have had water leaking down onto our ceiling. The water damage has caused the ceiling to fall down on 2 seperate occasions.  The last time there was so much water it also damaged the floor.  The water continued to leak down to the store on the ground floor. The shopkeeper isn't too concerned because it's in a back room.  My clothes closet was also damaged along with the clothes that were now dripping with dirty water.  He appologized and says he is willing to pay to repair the damage but I am getting very tired of this.  He is far from finished.  I am very concerned that there will be more flooding in my future.  I travel a lot for business and don't won't to come home again to find water & plaster everywhere.   Does anyone know if it is required by the city to have a permit to do this kind of work? I also have to wonder about the electrical work that was done.  He literally gutted his entire apartment.  I just don't know what I can do.  My VvE president (also an owner) says the matter is between me & my neighbor. I think he should be concerned about the work too.  Everyone who lives here should! Their are a total of 5 owners in our building so we are a small association. I am hoping anyone who had a similar situation could offer some suggestions. Thank you!

Hi everyone. I recently visited a home that had bean lap trays which were weighted with a big bean bag on the bottom. We thought it was a great idea when we were journeying home and wondered where I might be able to buy something like this for our home? Thanks
