There's a house in another little town that's, well, CHEAP. How cheap? $6,000 cheap. Yes, Six. Thousand. Dollars. No mortgage kinda cheap. Dirt freaking cheap. Laura - who spends most evenings watching House Hunters and Property Virgins and My First Place - is just about to quiver out of her skin.
Bill has tons of experience in remodeling fixer-upper houses, especially crap-tastic ones - our previous house, where we happily lived for 12 years, was just about a tearer-downer when we bought it. If the roof's not caving in, the plumbing and foundation are decent... she might just be buying a house. Maybe. I'll know more after she discusses the deal with her dad and after (if) they go look at it with Amy, our Realtor.
