Probably Not Coming to a Condo Near You...

One of the new amenities being used to sell condos in the New York Metropolitan area are wine cellars, located both within the Units themselves, and in what appears to be a limited common storage area.

This article in the New York Times describes the limited common areas:
Designed by Cellarworks, a local company, the $500,000 U-shaped space will provide a mahogany cabinet free of charge to nearly every resident, though larger apartments will get larger cabinets, Mr. Manton said.

Whether you use it to store wine or not, that mahogany cabinet sure puts the classic cubicle with a plywood door and a master lock to shame.

Then again, these condos start at 1.5 million.

Yes You Can!....

turn your sprinklers off for the year, that is.

According to the Utah State Division of Water Resources, Northern Utah residents can stop watering in October.

You may want to keep an eye on the temperature, because it has been unseasonably hot this Summer, but I think it's still safe to cut your time and frequency way, way back.
