Goddamn it.

Barb decided she wanted to talk tonight. I suppose I knew this one was coming at some point, but fucking ow.

Everything's fine. Just opened up a whole lot of old wounds.

The refinance has crashed and burned.

The condition of the property (primarily the roof) makes it "unlendable" without repairs, and I can't afford the repairs without the refi.

Marmot is hosed.

Leading the options right now is selling the Big Broken Box™ and moving somewhere new.

I can't afford much of a new place.

It needs to be in the western side, since my work is down in Eden Prairie and I'd rather not try to commute through-city. Southwest burbs, Minneapolis proper, west burbs. Plymouth. Maple Plain. I might even tackle Buffalo/Delano if the price is right. Nothing against St. Paul/Wisconsin, but trying to drive cross-city in rush hour is insane.

I don't mind some repair work as long as there is sound structure to work with.

I don't need a big house, but I want a big workshop/studio space. Ideally, I'd build my own place. I need to have broadband internet both directions (DSL or cable is fine).

Own, not rent. Top-end price in the $200k neighborhood, less would be better.

I need yard enough for the pooch to be happy.

If you come across anything, let me know.
