Project Smannon

Has it really been another six months since the last time I updated? I guess it almost has! Sorry about that. Rest assured that the last six months has pretty much been all garage, all the time. And man, is it impressive! Enormous, hand-built, and now electrified and insulated. I’ll be sure to update about its status ASAP.

That’s not what I want to tell you about this time, though. See, we’ve embarked on another household project:

This one will take a few more months to complete, and a few other projects are going to have to happen concurrently in preparation for the final reveal, but in the meantime, we’re going to try to spend as much time enjoying ourselves as possible.


Won’t you be my neighbor?

Hey, who feels like buying a house in one of the sweetest little neighborhoods in Iowa City? There are a crapload of houses for sale in our neighborhood, and I while we’re really going to miss some of the wonderful neighbors we’ve found, it wouldn’t be such a bad thing to rejuvenate our little patch of the city and get some new blood. We’re a couple of the youngest people on the street, after all, and while there were tons of neighborhood kids around when Kevin was growing up in the house, there aren’t so many nowadays. We need a youth injection on the street. Here’s a few of the options:

2 bedroom, 1 bath, 1100 square feet, $120k


3 bedroom, 2 bath, 1500 square feet, $225k
3 bedrooms, 1.5 baths, 1500 square feet, $225k

And here are a few more on neighboring streets:

3 bedroom, 2 baths, 1200 square feet, $205k


2 bedroom, 1 bath, 1000 square feet, $207k
2 bedroom, 1 bath, 1500 square feet, $189k

And if you’re looking for something a little more fancy, there’s a Summit Street mansion for sale!

4 bedroom, 3 bath, 3100 square feet, $465k and on its way down

So, who’s ready to move in?
