Well, long story short: the house closed. I now have my own space in East Ely. The house came with all sorts of treasures not the least of which is the lawn mower in the video above. It's like one of those Roomba Vacuums, if I let it go by itself long enough it will mow the whole lawn (it also chases any cats and the neighbor's kids away). So far I've replaced the kitchen faucet, fixed a window, and spent time watering the lawn. My new refridgerator should be in my kitchen this week if all goes well.
