In an upscale condo complex in northern Virginia, residents are living in an apartment that was meant for their families.
The apartments on the fourth floor are meant for the elderly and have no air conditioning, so the owners have opted for a cold weather comfort blanket.
There is no running water in the units, so residents have resorted to using a makeshift sink and shower.
“It’s a really good comfort blanket, but I think it is a little too much for the amount of time it is taking to get it,” said the owner, Amy McLean, a retired teacher.
Her husband is a construction worker and they are hoping the blankets will help him in his work.
McLean said they don’t want to spend the money on rent because they want the rent to help keep their house warm.
We feel like we’re taking on a burden that we have to take on,” she said.
A resident who rents an apartment at the Woodbridge apartments said he has been staying at the apartments for a couple of months and has not had a problem.
When he returned to his apartment, he found that the apartment was not as cold as he thought it was.
He said it is difficult to sleep when you are stuck in your apartment.
Woodbridge, a community in the Roanoke Valley, was named the Best Place to Live in the U.S. by Real Estate Magazine.
It was also named by U.N. agencies as one of the safest cities to live in for a first-time home buyer.
