  1. I love this site, too, but wonder how people can make a living in some of the small towns in North Dakota where these houses are located. I guess if the town has high-speed internet you can live anywhere these days.

  2. Love, love this article about living in a “cheap old house.” I can’t imagine living through a monster renovation but I love the writer’s perspective on life, Evanston, and having dreams! Go Nancy E. Anderson!

  3. I know what you mean. I’d like the affordability of a smaller town, but couldn’t leave the wonderful ambience of Evanston and all the friends and family here. It can be tough for retirees to keep their homes with high property taxes and HOAs going up all the time. What to do??
