Pipe dreams

Some poking around on the internet has given me this major urge to buy this:


and build this on it:


Dude, $22,500 for the building materials (less if I used recycled -- wassup, Boston Building Materials Resource Center!), and $60,000 asking price for the land, which I could probably get for less considering how long it's been on the market and how many times they've reduced the price. It would cost like nothing to heat or light the house, and I could grow a lot more produce on that huge lot.

You know, with all my spare time and money.

I think you can build that in The Sims. ;-) It's what the pictures look like!

Yyyyyeah, the interior pics aren't exactly high quality. They're more than enough to give me an idea of what it would feel like in there. I was kind of feeling a bit like a Lego minifig though, now that you mention it...

I went over there a few days ago to check out the vacant lot. Gorgeous street, lots of porches and gardens. Hmm.

Oh, and the lot is currently a jungle. Which would mean that clearing it would probably best be done with a chainsaw, which would make me be THAT person who makes everyone wonder why the hell they hear someone using a chainsaw in a residential neighborhood.
