I Bought a House in Detroit for $500. Ask Me Anything!
Almost a decade ago, I bought an abandoned house in Detroit for $500. I fixed it up with my own hands and live there with my dog. The city has changed immensely since I moved in, and I wrote about the experience for BuzzFeed. My book based on the piece comes out today. AMA!
Edit: alright folks, it's been real, and I had fun. I have to run, but I'll try to stop by in the next couple of days and answer some more of these questions. If you missed it, here's the Imgur link to photos of the house: http://imgur.com/a/66fDh
And some more "after" photos I took this afternoon when I got back home today: https://imgur.com/a/ePkeo
