    Thinking of moving

    We moved down to SW Florida a little over 5 years ago. We bought a very nice house with a wonderful view.

    But now the wife is wanting to look at some homes in the area. Of coarse they will cost more, not including just the cost of moving and realtors.

    At least she is wanting to stay in the area. We are going to look at a home today that is way to big, and probably needs work. At least it is on the water.

    This sounds like a reasonable trajectory. It's great you are liking the area enough to stay and get something even better. On the water sounds ideal in SW Florida, where you get the breezes.

    I like working on houses, though.

    If you’re there I guess you might as well be on the water.

    The wife loved the house, I don’t. It’s way to big, and it’s a two story, but it does have a cool elevator. It’s described as a English cottage style, seems more German to me. It does have some really neat features, a library with a ladder that is on tracs, and a Juliet balcony off the library. And they say the view is amazing from the widows peak, but I’m not climbing up the ladder to look.

    The kitchen would have to be gutted and there would be quite a bit of work needed. The landscaping was a mess.

    I was going to ask what that ticket booth thing was, but it must be the elevator.

    so, if you are on the water you also need water in your lannai thing with a hot tub and an indoor pool?
    Hmmmm.

    what did your wife like about this house?

    And yes, even if your on the water, you have to have a pool. And we also have a hot tub that the grandkids love.

    It's not a style I like, even when it's somewhere like Winnetka. That would such an odd house in Florida.

    I'd keep looking, but maybe I just can't deal with Tudor on a lagoon.
