[EMS Discuss] Lets schedule a time when we can all check out the 1010 Tyinn space!

offer. Darn... ;-(
The owner does not want to come down to what we can afford, they still
want to get at least $2300 / mo for it.
We've looked at about 16 places so far, and there are definitely some of
them that are decent. Our Realtor and I will keep looking too, so it's
just a matter of time. :-)
Pictures of places documented by yours truly:
The one I wrote about below is still very attractive.
