Whether you want to be a more informed citizen or just want to kill some time before 5 on a Friday afternoon, WegoWise has got you covered. This Friday we're focusing on housing--not just the newfangled stuff coming down the pike, but also innovative ways to deal with existing buildings. So peruse our best links, give us some feedback and be sure to share some of the info you just gleaned with other interested parties at the parties you are hopefully attending this weekend.
