    [QUOTE=iris lilies;314295]This house is cheap to live in. Taxes are $1000 a year. All utilities total $1500 a year. That does not include any cable or online connectivity.

    This house is easily livable the way it currently stands without rennovations. If we lost all of our money and pension, we could live here fairly easily on Social Security income. The one big downside here is yard care—It is big, on a hill, and requires time and equipment for maintenance.[/QUOTE

    So got curious and our same utilities are 3600/year but our property taxes only 700/year. We have baseboard electric heat which is more expensive.

    Still having trouble with remembeing which house has which kitchen supplies. Grated parm cheese? Hermann has it, city house does not. Garlic? Any more than one garlic head gets old in Hermann, so I have to schlep garlic and onions back and forth. We have to,eatbup our onion supply because we grew them and they go,soft, so buying them when in Hermann isnt a good thing. Eventually we will have an onion field in Hermann.

    We take perishables back and forth. When we're at the cabin, we never know if we can truly go back the next weekend or 2. We learned the hard way. We just bring it home if not completely consumed. I have a wicker basket nonrefridgerated items travel in. So not used items, go right back into it when packing up for departure.

    IL, I would just hire the work done in Hermann and move in when done. With all the crime I would sell St Louis house. Problem of what is where is solved)
