Entry Description: This series documents the highlights and low points of my house hunting experience in Los Angeles in the Spring of 2013. The process became so challenging it sparked a personal project intrinsically tied to what became an epic quest competing in a real estate market dominated by investors with cash offers. Inspiration hit when some of the properties up for consideration lacked enough closet space to room my favorite pair of boots. It was then that they joined the mission to find a place to call home.
