Another alternative is to outsource the bits you don't like (lawn care, snow
removal, routine car maintenance?), and do the stuff you do like (restoring?
Fabrication?).   Depending on where you are, things like lawn mowing can be
ridiculously cheap, and give a bunch of time to other things.

On the other hand, if you do go for a condo, keep enough tools to do stuff
you'd feel like an idiot calling a plumber for.
