bathurst clark rental toronto

Rental of the week: somewhere on Bathurst

I’m not a carpenter or a construction worker, so I don’t have a lot of knowledge about building things. That being said, I’m pretty sure this apartment is going to collapse on itself. 

First off, the ceiling looks precarious at best. The particle board ceiling tiles are warped beyond repair and look like they’re rotting.

Also, I don’t understand how the ceiling is halfway down the window. 

Did they lower it? What is actually happening here? Why do you only get half a window? What if you need to crawl out one because the ceiling collapsed on you? Can an adult human fit through that tiny space? My best guess is 'no.'

But, if you look closely, in two spots the grouting lines go away. I’m not sure if this is a case of poor construction or — more likely — really bad photoshop.

Honestly, I can’t believe this place is listed for $1,200. Especially considering the fact that I can’t confirm if there’s a bathroom or not.
