  1. Can't wait to see how they change the square footage. 1600 is a bit small. Not greedy mind you, a won lottery is still …Yippeeee! I just cant seem to see how the projects will materialize. All these projects … so many dreams. I want to see design that draws the outside… in.

  2. I can not wait for this to start! I hope you use a lot of the old rustic furniture and trunks. They are amazing. I don't know if you have already budgeted for everything yet but it would be cool to try to incorporate some solar energy panels. This is something that I am very interested in and would love to watch how it is done. If not I am sure you will have it on the show another time.

    • I agree. Using solar power would enhance the desirability and of course the finances of upkeep. Imagine using those rays for more than a great suntan.
      And wouldn't it be great to have on that pier a solar powered gazebo retreat with small cooking area to cookup those fish.
      Imagine the ceiling fans resembling palm fronds waving the breeze as we stretch out enjoying the water all around. BLISS!

  9. I love the location. Does the plans include a safe haven during storms a SAFE room especially reinforced to withstand hurricane winds? Also flooding how does this effect the safety of occupants. Beauty is great but knowing that you will live to enjoy it is even better. Makes the joy more intense if peace of mind is its partner.

  10. This is great that they have cabin(house) in NC this time. I have family living out there, and what I've seen of pictures posted, it's a nice state/area. Would be nice to have a nice get away/vacation house like that. It's nice that there's been all these kinda water front homes and such, but will you folks every make it further out to the midwest or further than that to have cabins else where then the cost lines? Just wondering, but definently looking forward to this cabin. I love the beach and ocean scene.
