I rent a barn from a guy and I teach gymnastic lessons there.
He makes a decent chunk of change with what I pay him monthly.
It is nice for me to store all my equipment and conduct lessons not at my home. The condition of the barn isn’t too hot though. The bathroom is always gross. I tried cleaning it but it was quite dirty and stained looking. There is also standing water in the bathroom at all times. The barn main area isn’t great either. The floor has pieces coming up. I have tried to do some repairs to ensure a flat surface. I am not the owner and I put folding mats over top of it. So no harm, no foul you know? The biggest concern is the roof though. At first I thought it was just a drywall issue on the ceiling. Pieces of drywall would frequently fall and expose the beams of the roof. I would clean up the pieces and just conduct business like usual. When water started leaking around the lights, I knew there was a major concern here. I have contacted the guy about the condition of his roof. He hasn’t answered me. I hate to push too hard and be a problem. I don’t want to raise my rent. I am guessing he will charge me more if he needs a new roof. How long can a roof leak water? I am thinking it is a fire hazard when water leaks through the lighting. I don’t want it to be dangerous for my students either.
