  1. MAKE IT ACCESSIBLE IN ALL ENTRYS AND BATHROOMS

  2. I have always loved all the blog cabin or homes that have been done and always wanted to vote and hope to win but none of them really ever cater to a realistic family. I am a couple with four children and need the bedrooms at least 3-4 in a blog cabin/home…but beautiful jobs you guys, keep up the good work…hopefully one day you will do one for big families:)

  3. I drove past this home today…how sad it looked…only a few of the original beams/studs still up. This will be converted from a cutesy old cottage to a mc mansion…. not at all in keeping with the community. Whoever wins it is in for a rude awakening….many many homes for sale in this area. No stores, no theaters, no places for kids to go…. have to go about 35-40 miles to the nearest decent shopping… I LOVE IT HERE…but most folks would not. You have to like peace and quiet without any hustle bustle to live here. I hope I am wrong about whoever wins this home, but you are in for quite a surpise.

  4. Looks nice, but ANOTHER east coast location? Maybe next time could you possibly go for something on the west coast? Just a thought. Anyway, I like the potential, like the property, hope I win!

  5. How about making. Part of the porch an outdoor sleeping porch? Sleeping to the sound of the waves. Heaven!

  8. As a Licensed Social Worker working in an Urban School I enjoy taking students to the beach. Most report that they have never seen the ocean… it is magical to see their face the first time they experience the Atlantic Ocean! It has been a dream of mine to share the peace and majestic beauty of the ocean with our children… due to lack of funds we must make it a day trip, with a house like this I would be able to provide the experience of a lifetime to our students. All is right with the world when we experience the beauty of the sand and sea! I Love…Love… Love…this beautiful oasis!

  10. I live in a tiny cottage on a tiny island in TX. I can't even see the Gulf. (Port Aransas,TX.)This is my DREAM!!
    MY family all live in North Carolina and this Cabin would be the Best of both worlds.
    As usual I am sure that you will create the same fantastic home that you always do!! Thank you for allowing us to have our vote… being involved is such a thrill…THANK YOU! Cathy Mangum
