How To Avoid Buying A Lemon House  [Washington Post]  Ghosts, radon gas, hidden tree damage, termites – so much can go wrong when you’re buying a new house.  Rule #1 of buying a lemon house is:  don’t tell anyone, so you can dump it on someone else as soon as possible.

How Do You Move An 880-Ton Building?  [Urban Turf DC]  Answer:  five feet at a time, on a hydraulic beam, whatever that is.  *Why* would you move an 880-ton building is a better question, though.  (Because it’s historic, and a developer wants to build a high-rise there.)
