If you think that Olentangy -- as in the name of the river east of Powell, OH -- is a bit of a tongue twister, then be grateful that the original term has fallen out of favor. The Delaware word for the waterway was keenhongsheconsepung_, _which means "stone for your knife stream." The natives used to turn the shale on the shoreline into weapons.
When one of the highlights of a local government's annual report is how many trees it has planted, that city must care about the livability of its citizens. Or, in typical small town fashion, we suppose it could be that people there just don't have much else to report. In any case, Powell must be doing something right because CNN called it one of the best places to live and Forbes hailed it as one of the "best places to get ahead." The relative newness of the homes, the expansive floor plans, and the conscientious homeowners' associations (HOAs) combine to give you an excellent quality of life in Delaware County. If you're an arborist who loves a small town with proximity to a metropolitan area, allow us to be so bold as to welcome you home to Powell. See more
Scoring an apartment with hardwood floors can be a big win for Powell renters. They`re typically a beautiful addition to your space. They’re also easier to clean and sweep, particularly if you have pets.
However, there are some downsides. Hardwood floors carry sounds. They can also make your apartment noisy for your roommates and downstairs neighbors.
Ask the landlord or property manager about the hardwood floors before signing a lease. Are they actually hardwood or a popular composite alternative? The latter is probably easier to clean and care for than the real thing.
It’s also important to ask about who’s responsible for any damage to the floors and what that entails. Your security deposit could take a hit from scratches, dents, and other damage.
Consider the type of climate you live in. Hardwood floors typically don’t fare well in damp climates full of moisture. Stains and buckling are common in hardwood floors after rain flooding or excessive moisture.
However, hardwood floors can be ideal for dry climates or sunny areas for renters who love the way they look.
