Default In and out of the city

My 5 acres is 3 miles from the beach. were I make my living. I am on a dead end road. surrounded by a state park. you find my house your lost.
I pass the state game warden? coming and going. he is like 90. sometimes I stop just to see if he is still moving ..
I haven't locked a door to the house in 15 years. sit on the back porch drink my coffee and watch the deer. there pets the golf course feeds them. what is that you have planted wish my field looked like that.
All I did know about buzzards was they don't have feathers on there heads so they can easily get in and out of a carcass.
one other thing after 30 years they have decided to put a road through my living room. the state appraised the house a month ago. haven't got that yet.
Its not how much do you want . it is this is what its worth get out.

Its not how much do you want . it is this is what its worth get out.
I would be heartbroken if the city wanted to put a road through my house. I am a believer in not allowing eminent domain to happen. If you own something no one, or the govt., should be able to take it. Just my half cent....LL

Default eminant domain

Get this they want to know how much money I make.So they can properly appraise my home. What dose that have to do with the value?.
Mr strikes I was stationed in San Diego and San Fran wile in the service. Beautiful area defiantly a different culture of people . married a girl from Chino
no idea were that is . her uncle has condos somewhere in that area. we are considering moving there? . the next couple months will decide our move?.

LEON I think the columns on your home are fiberglass and pickets also . irrelevant at this time . when the time comes to paint them consider dry ice blasting before painting. you should never paint over chips or flacking on the rails. they look worst after painting if not brought back to a smooth surface. the cost of blasting will provide years of clean exterior handrails. if those are growing vines I believe you will hate them in the near future. there roots attaché and penetrate any surface. and become a real pain to remove and clean up.your call.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL OF YAWL.

I can't compete with what has already been shared, but I'm happy here:

This is out my back door - several ducks, good fishing, and no vultures.

Thanks for the tip, Bobby. Those columns got painted 2 yrs ago for the first time. They are the least of any issues. The underhang is another story. The top balcony has leaked a little bit for 17 yrs when it rains. I have sealed the deck as well as I can and it hasn't worked. I have given up. IN about 30-40 yrs I don't think I will care.

Default Homes

Raymond looks quite cozy to me. a bit cold for a gulf coast resident?.

Leon decks leak from improper or rusted out flashing could be a window in the area?. something is going on there. a water hose directed at specific areas will give you a idea of were its coming from . water follows the path of least resistance. it could be entering from 30 ft. from were you see it?. its the water that you don't notice that can create the most damage. I live in a high humidity area were moister intrusion creates severe rot and mildew . not trying to make it out as a national disaster . just something that you may want to resolve.

Bobby- my picture is from a few years ago...it's normally very humid here except for the few months of 'real' winter. It rained last night and this morning but it isn't cold enough for snow...next week it will be, but there won't be any rain...so we have to document the few times we do get snow that sticks.

This was the view out my back porch window 2 years ago when we had an early snow the day after Thanksgiving in Northern Indiana.

Needless to say....

This is why I like where I live.

Dave I love your place. what's that house in the back used for?.

Raymond as for documenting snow I assume you are far south as I am. if we get snow in Gulf Shores al. though it has happened everything shuts down.
