I'm assuming the plastic is to protect the balcony floor painting they did yesterday from the rain. The previous balconies were made out of a stucco poured frame. Now I'm afraid of what ideas they have for the new windows...

Thanks for the pictures Patricia.

When they do out side work here in Portland,   
they are very strict about what can and can
not be used.  Everything needs to look the
same as it did....  lot's of regulations. 

The weather here is starting to cool down,
which is a great relief.   IMHO the nicest
part of the year here in Maine is coming up.

Shortly there after is the worst..
(Holidays !) and new year.   

Time sure is flying by.

Sandy, I posted this at the Soda Shop; They had the lift machine out early and just now removed the balcony door lock and took down the plastic. I'm afraid that means they're done, but I hope not.

 They had originally put down wood and then plywood for the balcony floor. Then they painted it a commercial brand of steel grey and put up the plastic and soon after, coming back to paint a second coat. This one is the color of what may inadvertently come out of either end.

However, they're back on the lifts on my end of the building, so who knows? When these buildings were privately owned, we were in a better condition before the state purchased them in 2016. Now, as state-owned, even reserved for a certain population segment,  I'm assuming we're considered public housing?

I saw the manager and offended her by asking if we were considered public housing. She told me we are an independent senior building. If it were public, we'd pay less, have none of the perks such as free laundry, garbage shoots, automatic locked doors and entryways, 24/7 maintenance and security, and cameras in all public areas. She also said only a very few pay less per income. I believe I upset her. However, we're, in my own opinion, receiving less of what we received before.
