Our flooring installation this weekend was both noisier and took longer than I expected. How can we thank our downstairs neighbour for putting up with us? [more inside]
Is there anything to be done about (probably unintentionally) loud neighbors? [more inside]
How do I either stop my bed from squeaking or stop being embarrassed about my downstairs neighbors potentially hearing it? [more inside]
How can I get my neighbors to silence their constantly barking dog, considering I'm not sure how to communicate with them? [more inside]
Any good solutions for canceling out my neighbor's bass from their stereo without headphones? Headphones aren't an option all the time if I need to sleep. Are their nose canceling stereos? How well do they work? What else could I try? [more inside]
My upstairs neighbors and I have had small battles throughout the course of the year, but it's been getting worse as of late. Recently they've taken to stomping around at odd hours of the night, and it's driving us crazy. What's the best way to defuse the situation with them? [more inside]
My upstairs neighbor has become increasingly loud. He installed wood floors before moving in a year ago, which amplifies the sound. I can tolerate most noise, especially during the early evening. But he comes home after midnight, often with boisterous friends, and their noise keeps me up for hours. I've spoken to him on two occasions to keep it down. Now I want to write a letter. I want to be respectful and respected, but I'm not sure what to say other than to keep it down after hours. I know letter between neighbors can't be enforced, so how can I write it in a way that he'll be understanding and comply? Thanks in advance for advice!
