“We like the location much better than we thought,” said a resident of 912 Alberta. “It’s closer to campus.”

“We call this our ‘indoor porch,’” said a resident. “It’s a house joke. We use it to take family pictures.”“The kitchen always gets really hot,” said a resident."We're pretty sure there's a ghost that haunts the kitchen and hallway," said a resident. "It's a little girl laughing...I think everyone's heard it by now!“We always talk about the fake brick wall,” said a resident. “And I think our ghost is in the hallway.”“We were told to saran wrap the fireplace to avoid bats,” said a resident. “It’s fake."“There’s always cold air in the shower, no matter how hot the water is,” said a resident.
Another said the fan is really loud. “It sounds like it’s going to take flight soon,” she said.“The stairs are a little squeaky,” said one resident."Everything in the house is pretty new, so there's nothing too 'janky,'" said a resident."My bedroom is slanted," said a resident. "The drawers never stay shut. It'll just inch open when we're just sitting and talking!"“We hang with our neighbors in the side yard a lot,” said a resident.

This is to ensure the building’s water pump has the pressure it needs to get water to the sprinklers.  Here, Darren Lyons of Simplex Grinnell, the assisting contractor, checks the readings on the pressure gauges as he observes the water flow during the test.
