I bought a little box.

I just bought this little 1950s house in St. Paul. It’s on a huge triple lot and was apparently built of cement all the way up. The original builders started with the basement only, and lived there until the city made them put a ground floor on it. Supposedly this type of house is known for being fairly bomb-proof: “1950’s – a solid concrete “Atom bomb proof” flat roof Hialeah home”

Here’s a quick shot of the kitchen:

The garage is huge, about as big as the ground floor of the house. Depending on how you park, it’s about a 4+ car with an extra storage room and lots of workbenches. It used to be insulated and heated, but the stove is gone and the roof is rotten, so that will be the first project:

Eventually the garage will probably look something like this:

The neighborhood seems pretty quiet:
