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

Fri Nov 1 14:34:43 PDT 2013

Hi Gang,

So the sad news is the owner of the big 1010 Tyinn space declined our 
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.
