  2. a warm floor in the windy wintery months…and more electrictricity to keep the air conditioners running to keep you cool in the summer…combo solar pv and thermal roof could make this blog cabin very attractive..

  3. Beautiful, Please don"t take all the old charm from the cottage. Yes I'am voting for the designs in this home to be. Love it, hope it will be mine but whoever wins will be well blessed. Beautiful beach area have never been, would love to see it. Have my boat ready, my canoe, and the family. Thanks for the hard work, great job!

  7. "Beach front property" what a joke, it's on the Core Sound, Stryon's Bay to be exact. You see that marsh, that's part of the three acres, do you know how many green flies are going to be there in the summer. I am very familiar with the location. The beach they were showing everyone surfing, and fishing, that's about an hour drive, and forget about shopping, one little grocery store with half empty shelves, you'll survive but that is about it. Yeah go ahead bring the wife and children, they'll love it. Ha Ha Ha. Oh yeah go ahead and put a boat on that dock, wait until the wind blows south west 25 every summer afternoon. That place should have been bulldozed long ago. Have they mentioned how deep the water was inside the old house during hurricane Isabell? Charming with endless possibilities you all need to stop taking LSD.

  9. Ready to move in, boat and canoe also need a new home.Blessed that this crew is so talented . I would love to be the one to call this cottage my home. All is welcome if I win. Bring it on, one big party, love to have all sorts of gathering.All will be welcomed, one great party. I't dosen't bother me that grocery store's and neighbors are far away. I how live so far out I'am lucky I have electric anything. This beautiful cottage would look great with oil lamps went needed. This place is free, no need to complain. Great location, Iam all for it.

  10. I live in Morehead City, NC the closest BIG City to Atlantic…LOL and about 1.5 hours away. This is a perfect vacation spot. I love the design and always happy to see homes re-done and love that they chose this spot. It can be very relaxing for the right family.

    I would love to see solar panels or a vertical wind turbine on this home with backup batteries & a generator. Anyone who will be living in it will need them after a storm. Atlantic is the always the last place to get electricity back after a hurricane and having lived down east it can easily be a couple of weeks without power.
