Well, our landlord called last night and told me what a great location we had, how much he likes us, and that he's getting old.

He didn't say he'd sell the place for less, however.

Our challenges:

1. Buy the lot for as little as possible.
2. Design a duplex that maximizes space (interior and exterior) up to the limit the Board of Variances imposes.
3. Build the duplex quickly and efficiently.

Personally, I think we can get this lot for a reasonable price. The big question is still how much will it cost to tear down the current place and build a new one? If we can build a modern, open, bright three- or four-storey duplex (with rooftop garden) for under $300,000, we win.

Am I dreaming?
