CH NEWSLETTER #9 JANUARY 3, 2021
What a year it’s been!
Here’s a picture of what our beloved house looked like a year ago - progress my friends, we’ve come a long way !
Here’s some updates for you, while you’ve been enjoying the time back home or on holiday 🌴 , the CH team has been hard at work 💪🏽!!
PRIVACY UPGRADES: Intercom & Door Windows
It’s in ! Now the delivery people will be able to call you up to let you know your Michigan poutine with extra sausage has arrived.
NEW MEMBERS ARRIVALS
Starting beginning of Jan new members will be joining us from all over the globe 🌎!

HOW TO DISHWASHER Video
We had a visit from the appliance company that sold us everything including our dishwasher & it turns out that the appliances don’t have any defects but it’s rather the way they have been used that has caused some issues. So! In order to help out we will be putting together a “How To” video starring the dishwasher pro who will give the Do’s and Don’ts 🙏
START OF SEMESTER ACTIVITIES - INTEGRATION
As we have new members joining us, we will do our best to have an integration amongst all house members as soon as everyone is back in town. Seeing as the majority is getting back in towards the 15th; we will push back our plan until then. Stay tuned 🙏 🔥
Members interested in using the common space for an activity hit us up (some of you had really good ideas) this is your time to shine ✨!
CLEANING MISSION HOUSEKEEPING
It’s also come to our attention that a few members have been refusing the housekeeping access to clean their bedroom on a consistent basis (read: those rooms look like a tornado 🌪 passed through them 🤢) . As you know, housekeeping is included and mandatory, so might as well enjoy its benefits! Going forward, this can’t happen more than 1 week in a row. We really need to be able to inspect & clean the space to make sure that it stays beautiful and nice 🙏
Thanks to your feedback 🙏 we have started production on our very own Do Not Disturb signs 🪧 to help you alert housekeeping not to enter 💪🏽
As you most probably saw, there are new restrictions in place in Montreal for the time being, most notably a 10pm curfew.
On our end, we are keeping in line with the health requirements asked of us as a residential building which have already put in place (hand sanitizer at every entrance and on every floor).
Please note that if you have any questions regarding the crisis and any health concerns, there is a provincial hotline 1-877-644-4545
If you have any questions regarding this in relation to Chelsea House, feel free to reach out to us.
CHELSEA ART PROJECT
The Montreal based “Le LivArt” Art Center 🖼 has accepted to assist us in decking out our halls with art ! The inspiration is to have a mix of antique frames, modern black frames & frameless art works put up in our hallways & staircase.
Visually we will want to continue with the design theme of combining (clash) antique with modern, so in this case we will have photography, serigraphy, painted artwork. A modern piece within an antique frame / a classic painting that we add on top of it a message.
We will also have some framed pieces which will be interactive (think white board, pin board).
If you want to contribute to the effort ! Let us know 🙏
Timeline -> progressively over Q1 2022
Here’s some pictures of the inspiration:
