GenXr here, but I married a millennial cusp but my rising sign is a Virgo so that explains everything? Seriously though, I want to own and remodel but just like I married late-ish I think I'll own lat-ish. My husband just started talking of owning something besides "let's get a yurt". I will say a housing cooperative is appealing but I went with soup pot options. Who knows!
I am feeling this post! Personally, I try to create my cartoon self. What would a cartoonist dress me in every Sunday paper? This cuts down on morning indecision which is not a great way to start a day. Anyhow, your uniform says stylish professional competence to me. I think my uniform is sort of elfish clerk.
That's super interesting, but no talk of money on the billfold? Pricing labor, cost of artisan college, studio costs? I loved all the questions and answers, but I want the nitty gritty too.
This is the best advice I've read in awhile.
Well written report on a good hustle.
I pay about 17% of my take-home pay in rent with 3 roommates, one is my BF. I have roommates, but I have savings.
@Meaghano Thank you!
Read it! Loved it. Is this the same guy who told the head of the DEA he'd write another season of The Wire when he legalizes drugs? He may be my hero. Who is the artist who made the interactive media piece? I've been trying to find it since I saw it originally on the interwebs.
Their advice for Chicago is not at all nuanced, but my city is dangerous in a lot of places and it's fair that France (or any country) would warn their citizens. Actually a lot of people from the area won't go south of Roosevelt, so France is being pretty adventurous.
Given their priorities, I think the patch work makes perfect sense for them. Down the line they can put in the subfloors. But the termites were isolated and the house has made it this far (115 years!). I for one think the patch adds to the character of the floor. Pretty impressive, a lot of people couldn't do it so well. I'm excited for this type of posting.
