Today I woke up in a good mood excited for tonight, I'm having dinner with friends to celebrate my B'day. Last night I went to a single's event and I lasted 3 hours in a bar!! maybe, because I met a cute guy ;).

The bad news is.. My neighbour is moving out today, I found this out when I was hearing all this noise in my bedroom. The walls are very thin. The problem is there going to be renovating the apartment for the month of Dec and I'm having my surgery on Dec 3rd!! The noise is going to be awful how am I supposed to rest while there banging on the walls??? I'm just so upset! I wrote a letter to the management's offfice explaining my sistuation and I forward it to my lawyers aswell. I feel I have just have no luck!

What would you guys do?

Love to all,



  • Most appartment renovations do not make much noise.Typical renovations are new carpet,vnyl and paint that's it.However the guys doing the work usually have a radio going,Im sure if you asked them they would keep it down.

    I hope this helped?
  • Lisa,

    Hi. I am so sorry for you. Isn't there hours in which they are allowed to work only. If so, I wouldn't worry to much. During the day, your medicine will knock you out and the rest of the time you will be sleeping.

    hang in there. If you are really worried then change the date to after the holidays.

  • Don't underestimate the power of earplugs. I find them extremely valuable at times (ie when my hubby is snoring or I need to take a nap while he's watching football). I've found the purple ones that have the highest decible removal the best.

    Other than that, what has been suggested above is good. I think they can only work during certain times and being an apartment, maybe it won't be such loud work.

    Good luck.
  • Thanks guys for the support. I wrote my property manager a letter and I have also send it to my lawyers. The noise is awful they have to use a drill and when that thing is on the whole building shakes! actually a lot of the tenents have moved out because of this problem. I'm hoping to speak with them on Monday to see what can be done and for me to have a peacful recovery....

    Earplugs are good. If you want to listen to radio get a good pair of "marshmallow" type in the ear headphones. They block out external noise and make it easier to hear music, etc.
