    Your home looks beautiful. I've seen prior posts and I still like looking at it. :cool:

    What happened with the lot/home/hangar at the water end of the runway? Looks like someone was going to build a big house on the water and ran out of money. There's still a foundation perimeter in the photos and a hangar that might have some living space in it.

    Man, that would be my ideal "forever home" site. Back side on a lake with a dock for my boats and fishing. Front side with a nice runway. Truly a perfect match for those who love the air and the sea.

    That's actually the house that the developer was building for himself. He is currently living diagonally across from me (I think he built that house for his mother, but she refused to move in). He spends about half his time in Mexico these days. He's actually sold the house he's living in now, so he's making talk about actually finishing the other house. It should have a real nice view (complete with infinity edge pool looking out over the lake).

    Ours is 60' wide by 40' deep. Big enough, but clutter is always a problem - has something to do with entropy, I think.

    One oversight: we forgot to plan for closets, and don't have any. Oops! May have to add some in the future.

    Don't forget to consider HOA dues, airport fees and assessments, and everybody's favorite? Taxes.

    I agree! some people just have big expectations. Several properties have sold the year the were private sales in the high $500 - $600 K range.
