    We Like living here, the rent is kinda pricy, but its a good complex. I would love to get a paint job, where they have been painting over paint, the paint is just peeling off the walls and im always so afraid my kids will put it in their mouths. I have an autistic child so I would love to have double doors on the back so he wont escape.
