I got some more house pictures.
I was supposed to meet Chris there to do some measurements, but he couldn't
make it, so I just wandered around taking pictures and looking at
possibilities. His guys cleaned out the pole barn today, and found this
riding mower. It's never been run. It isn't even completely assembled.
Here you can see the two-car garage, with attached apartment. The garage is
of course what has my interest. It even comes with a compressor (may require
some small maintenance).
It's got well water. There's city water also, but the well water will help
to irrigate the yard into an oasis.
The apartment is attached to the garage. It's a 1/1. It's covered with that
T1-11 siding (or however you spell it), but the siding seems to be in good
shape. There's no interior shots because all of the doors and windows are
boarded up to keep out the homeless.
The town hall is directly behind the garage and apartment. Do you think they'll
notice if we don't pull permits? Apparently they are just happy that someone
is finally cleaning up the place after fifteen years. There's a nice ball
field next to the town hall.
The pole barn is almost certainly coming down. Actually, there's no almost
about it. What hasn't rotted has been eaten by termites. It's rustic, in
a filthy, trash-strewn sort of way.
Here's two shots of the complete garage/aparment structure, with the pole barn
gleaming next to it. You can see the vast expanse of yard. You may say
rutted, weed-covered dust bowl, but I say... go-cart track. There's also
the start of a nice tire collection piled up next to the fence.
Here's the house from the rear, and the front. I think it's got curb
appeal, don't you?
