Abandoned Shelter of the Week 

Considering all the doom going down in the world this week, the abandoned structure squad (known far and wide as ASS or, occasionally, known far as wide-ASS) thought we’d give y’all a break this week and offer up a hot tip to any prospective homeowner willing to put in a little sweat equity. This dwelling at 14874 Rockdale was seized by the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office and is now up for bid online (along with several other abodes) at www.waynecounty.com/property/default.htm. This cozy little bungalow features hardwood floors in the living and dining rooms, and a bath with — hold on to your hats here — all the fixtures in place! Current high bid is $1,800. There’s also a little matter of some back taxes that need to be cleared up before you can move in and set to painting and fixing a leak or two (or three) in the roof.
