    Selling my house in Fla

    Fully hp accessable, designed by me. I'm taking a loss on this house, it's a great deal. Very nice gated Community.

    I'm currently building a new house in the same development, I love it here. Real nice walking paths, pool, etc. Very wheelchair friendly.

      I adore that red chaise lounge!!! Guys at work once spoke about buying a time-share .. I'm going to tell them about this! The hold-up was accessibility for all members (um that would be me) lol. Just posted it ... 1% has come from my pay cheque for almost 14yrs now for lots of things I couldn't do ... maybe they'll consider this one. LOL

      Love that you have a wall clock in your bathroom too - I get teased to hell over that. Where else would you want a clock is what I say!

      Wish I could afford it - I'd buy it in a heartbeat!

      Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

        Thanks, ya it's a great house. I kinda had fun furnishing it and making everything nice with the fake plants and all, lol. Now I'll get to do it all over again in moving into my new house once they are done building it here at this development I'm in. I find if I stay busy it help ease all the neuro pain I have.

          Ya, it's a connected house although totally separate electric and water, etc. The guy that lives next door is really nice guy, a former secret service agent for the government, I keep trying to get secrets out of him, but he's not talking.

            Block, metal frame, on a concrete slab sound really good in that state from our experience Curt.
            I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

              Most houses in Fla are concrete slabs as the ground is a little unstable and best off with a slab rather than a basement like the houses up north. Easier to build that way too.

                Both have footings and foundation walls, my point that I did not make was about termite proofing. We inherited two houses in Orlando. One had been defumigated and I had to clean out the garage, well everything. He had stored lumber in the attic of the garage and I literally took out buckets of termite poop before we put it on the market. Metal framing sounds wonderful.

                  That house is absolutely beautiful. The view is nice too. The bathroom is huge. I'm wondering about the toilet area. It looks like there is no grab bar. Is it hidden behind the shower curtain?

                    Yep, there are grab bars near the toilet, in back and on the side and a grab bar in the shower area. It's a large shower area with a little lip that could easily be taken out and made into a roll in. I didn't remove the lip because I transfer to a shower bench I keep in there.

                    Ya, the termites can be bad in Florida and I've really kept up on the program with the things that are planted all around the house, these are the fancy electronic ones, the bug guy just walks around with a meter to check them, very high tech. The new house I'm building has nylon piping throughout the inside of the walls in the house and the bug guy just hooks up to a outside valve and blows the chemicals in, how cool is that? Divosta the builder is the best builder in the country, they have everything very well under control. I went for the inspection of my new house today which is halfway completed now, very well done, they still don't have the drywall up yet, that's next. It will be done early April they tell me, it's getting exciting. Now to sell this house, I like buying better than selling, lol.

                        Steel framing. Nice!

                        We had our house here in SW Florida built at the worst possible time (2006). It took nearly 18 months from the time the contract was signed, cost a lot, and as you can expect, not everything went perfectly. I'm sure you don't really need this advise but... Check everything at every stage of construction yourself, if you can. Or get someone you can really trust, who knows what you want. Take measurements. Sometimes things can get lost between blueprints and actual construction on the site. Good Luck. Looks like you're off to a great start.

                          I don't worry much about Divosta, they build a really good house.

                          Well, six days after putting my house on the market, it is under contract, I had it priced to sell and it worked.
