Hi everyone, I’ll be starting a sabbatical from work next week (04/03) to try to learn all I can about home renovation (and maybe eventually change careers). Since I’m renting an apartment in pristine condition in Brooklyn there’s nothing I can start working on at home.
I’m thinking about taking classes at the New York City College of Technology but it won’t replace real-life experience.
So if anyone in Brooklyn needs help with his home improvement project and is patient enough to teach me a couple of things along the way, I’d very happy to help! Even if it’s very simple stuff to begin with like painting. Since I’m on a sabbatical I have plenty of time available (until I run out of money, at least..).
Any help and advice on how to get started is more that welcome!
P.S: I'm French, so you'll have the added bonus of free conversation in French with a Parisian if you happen to be interested ;)

You should reach out to the oOcupy Sandy folks and volunteer with the rebuilding efforts. There is a ton of work to be done.

I have a busy design and construction company and can always use an extra pair of hands. Feel free to email me privately at brooklynprojectmanager at gmail dot com and we can chat further.

Well, hello there! I'm mostly DIY'ing a place in Rockaway. Tough to get to, but I drive from Bed Stuy if that helps. You would definitely learn more on weekends when my husband is around but during the week, I'll be doing things like tiling, faux techniques, caulking and painting. Over the next few weekends there will be plumbing, structural and eventually deck building and curb appeal once it warms up. If you scroll through my blog, you can see some of the project and contact me from there. Merci.

Application of Liquid EPDM Rubber
Liquid Rubber may be applied at any temperature that permits it being spread onto the surface. It will waterproof immediately upon application. The solvent will evaporate at a rate governed by temperature but will not be affected by relative humidity. Exposure to freezing temperatures before cure has taken place will not damage the film. The time necessary to reach cure should not be a concern as this process will occur automatically. Exposure to sunlight will accelerate the curing process. The final film properties of the cured membrane will be the same regardless of the time required to achieve cure. EPDM Liquid Rubber® will provide long term protection even under extreme exposure conditions. It is resistant to temps of 300 degrees F and minus 62 F. Liquid rubber is water resistant even in an uncured state.
