I personally would not buy a place without a/c and I wouldn't buy one here unless it could be added.  The ERV may work for most people, but I need my place to be 19°C basically 24/7 in order to be comfy.  That's not gonna happen at a unit in this place.  I wouldn't be paying $900K on a place that I know I'm not gonna be comfortable in. 

 

I agree with Mike K. - having also lived in essentially greenhouses in the sky the difference AC makes can't be overstated.

I'm basically the same.  With no AC my place will hit 28 in the summer.

How about you folks in North facing condos? How have your experiences been with the need, or lack of need, for AC?

No AC in my house and except for maybe a week in summer it is just fine. Old house with high ceilings and the height lets the rooms feel cooler. (Changing a light bulb instantly reminds you were the heat went.)

The truly wealthy don't change light bulbs; they just move.

I fix almost everything myself, Scottish and raised in a large family, Do the gardening myself as well. Plumbing s the one thing I never developed the skill for but pretty good at most other chores. My father believed that a man needs to work with his hands to appreciate the world that he has and I was lucky to be taught by him.  Not most peoples view of the world these days.

Biggest frustration about living in a condo - not having the space to build or fix your own stuff.

Are workshops in condo buildings rare? My building has one, maybe I’m one of the lucky ones. Was useful when I repainted all my interior doors. Only wish I knew how to use the rest of the machines down there..

Seems like older buildings where space was less of a concern are the ones to have them, but through my browsing it doesn't appear many do.

The Bosa rental at 1008 Pandora has a dedicated workshop but I havent come across other buildings with this.

 

Went by the development and have to say, its very impressive. The amount of greenspace and unit sizes are unique - sounds like they're on a 10 year journey here with lots more to come.

My late mother's condo building, in Brentwood Bay, had a dedicated workshop space for residents to use.

I can only take on so much at once.  Let me move forward with my crusade against in-suite hot water tanks and chicken wire storage 'lockers' first. :D

And just a quick note, in case you might not be aware or other readers might not be aware, that Bosa project is from a different development firm (Bosa Properties) than the firm building Dockside, which is Bosa Development. They share a name only and are not affiliated.

Yup that and no place to store the tools: when I had my condo near CSV I had to store all the power tools at my parent's place near UVic. Not that I would have been spinning up a circular saw in the condo at 8am on a Sunday, but nevertheless....

I use the one in 1008 Pandora all the time! It's a great amenity. Free glue, nails, bike lube, sandpaper and other stuff too! The last building I rented in (Royal Woods on McKenzie, built in the mid-70s) had one too.

Many years ago there was a garage on Wharf street where you could take your car in and do minor repairs/oil changes etc.


Life's a journey......so roll down the window and enjoy the breeze.
