    I was thinking that, because the prohibition of milk and meat technically only applies if both milk and meat are from a kosher species. I mean pareve in the colloquial sense, as in not meaty (nor dairy, vegan-ish).

    They officially offer furniture assembly, and I'm under the impression that means putting together things from IKEA.

    I suppose it can't hurt to reach out to them, and perhaps they can connect you with a bochur that may be great with his hands
