When I pass by the building, sometimes its lights will turn on, lighting up my face. But when I try the door, it's locked, or doesn't open easily, or opens, but sometimes there's a chain-lock on the inside. Sometimes the lights won't come on at all when I pass by, while at other times, they will, and the door will open, but remain open, allowing in a chilly draft or a bit of rain after I've entered. If the door does close, sometimes I'll discover that there's no hot water, or a ceiling tile will fall. There's the timer on the door-lock, too, that, when it starts, I'm faced with the prospect of either being trapped inside with no heat, running water or in the dark, or again outside-- as has always been the case.
To my further dismay, the building seems to allow in questionable tenants or visitors that, at least in one particular case, apparently committed vandalism.
Unfortunately, AFAIK, it's a very rare building, with perhaps only a handful of its kind in the area, and one of the rare few of a character that especially seems to fit me. Not only that, but its knowledgeable experts-- its architects, builders, renovators and design-experts-- have all but vanished, and the town seems to have little value for that kind of building as far as I can see.
So for the time being, I don't know what to do.
