So, loree and I were out looking at open houses, as we are wont to do from time to time, and we found the absolutely *perfect* Nerdvana 3.0. It's got sound views, 400 amps total power service, a shop in the garage (including, frex, a single 50A240V circuit labeled 'welder'), and a separate apartment in the basement on the back. We'd have to rearrange the back yard a bit to put the hot tub in, but that shouldn't be a problem.
Now I just need to get a non-contract job, and we need to find somebody willing to pay $2k/mo $1k/mo rent for the apartment. Or I could go win the lottery. That would work too.
