Josh Josh Bought a Townhouse

I finally broke down and bought a townhouse in the Chicago suburbs in late 1997. It was new construction, built by Ryland Homes. It's a 1591 square feet townhome, with a base price of $133,990, and I upgraded the hell out of it. The features in the base unit include:

Some of the upgrades I got include:

Because of a special financing deal, Ryland included the base appliance cost for washer, dryer, dishwasher, and refrigerator, and paid 5 points on the mortgage.

Floor plans (for the first and second floors) are available; pictures of the unit and building are available as well (as of October 1998; the pictures from March 1998 are still online).
