The town of Lawrence, Indiana, lies about twelve miles south south-east of Indianapolis. In this town there is a short, curling street, a single block in length: Schoen Dr.
If I owned a home on that street I would be Dr. Lawrence Schoen living on Schoen Dr. in Lawrence, IN.
Many of the houses on this street sell in the $40-60K range. Many are in foreclosure.
Clearly I must acquire a house on this street, if for no other reason than to confound the post office with my mailing address.
I don’t know what I’d do with such a home (I live in eastern PA, after all), but that’s not the point. Nor does it matter that I don’t have a spare sixty grand laying around (I already looked under the mattress — no luck). Surely this is what Kickstarter exists for, right? Right?
This is a stupid idea wrapped around a stupid idea. Which means… it could actually work.
Please talk me out of this.
