  1. It looks like the bamboo has an insurmountable lead; I guess a lot of rugs will be in order to hide the garish "design". That's really too bad because the oak could be stained to almost any color which would give the rest of the interior design so much more flexibility.

  2. The yellow color used in the architectural drawing of the house is all wrong. The James Hardy yellow, Woodland Cream, is just a beautiful color! It has been used on an historical home in our neighborhood and is the most warm, soft beautiful yellow I have ever seen. You need to vote for the yellow fellow bloggers. The James Hardy siding is the bomb and I know several people in my area that have used it on their houses.

  3. Love this old house and think it will be gorgeous on it's new lot. It's so close to my little grandbabies in Tampa that winning it would enable me to take care of the little ones while their parents work and get in some Grammie time with them. They are three years, and three months right now. Since the death of my husband, nothing has brought me joy as much as these little girls and being able to live near them would be the fulfillment of a dream. I hope whoever wins it will appreciate it and enjoy it with their family members.

  4. Looks good! Except maybe the color of the front door. Not my color, but it does have that caribean look. I like the green color. I don't care for yellow homes. White trim ties in nicely. The hardwood look on the steps is also a nice touch as opposed to a plain white step. Good character.

  5. I'm so disappointed that people have lost the appreciation and value of a "real" wood floor – instead would have something that is expendable, trendy and laminated. I've lived in a house over 100 years old and there is absolutely no replacement for the hard wood floors. The best thing about it was when pulling up the old carpeting and being so grateful to see wood floors rather than laminate. The first thing I am going to do when I win the blog cabin is put in "real" wood floors!

  6. I really like the idea for the 2nd fl master suite. Great job. Can't wait to see what other plans are coming. With 5 ac.; there's a lot of yd to mow.

  8. I like the house and every thing, just wish it had a elevator in case my son is in wheelchair & many people is handicap but guess someone on S.S. can't win this…?? how much money is offered with it… cash…?

  9. Looks like cherry cabinets are going to win out but I think with the darker color floors maple would be the better choice. Oh well

  10. Where is the garage? Florida is known to have hurricanes. Will hurricane storm windows be installed?
