  1. here is a closer look at the 2 water feature options that seem to be a close vote

    Gene on April 24, 2014 at 4:40 pm
    • Gene,

      Thanks for the links.

      What I find interesting is that the two Water Features we are voting on are for the BEDROOM CABIN COMFORTS. At night the lucky winner will be sleeping and during the day the lucky winner will likely be outside on their brand new boat so the winning Water Feature will get little use in the BEDROOM. Hopefully, the designers leave a space in the FAMILY ROOM and LIVING ROOM so the winner can move it to one of those two rooms.

    • I agree Gene, plus listening to that in the bedroom would have me up during the night to peeeeee

    • Gene thanks for the info- some things are different when you look at them again thanks for all your info always welcomed:D:)

    • Gene, I have to tell you thank you. I am so glad that you posted these because I loved the urn one so much I ordered myself one. I owe you big time. I can't wait till it comes in. Thank you again.

  2. I am so jealous of your weather. I so wish it was in the 80's here. Can anyone tell me about the railings down by the lake and also why do they have part of the yard staked off down there? I can't figure out if that is the railing they are going to use for the dock or if that is for something else. Stay safe everyone and have a great day. God Bless!!

  3. Did anyone catch the family walking around the Blog Cabin site between
    7:15 and 7:25 this evening on the cabin cam? I think they especially enjoyed the garden! SMILE…YOUR ON CANDID CAMERA!!!

    • Yes, I saw the family.

      I have read that SQUATTERS are a big problem in Orlando but it never occurred to me that they would be scouting our beloved BC so soon.

  4. I know you are being slammed by any and everything but since in ground pool out of question is their a way to have a nice in ground pool? I have seen some and they are resonsable and nice. The winner would be able to have nice swim exercizers and family have fun and mostly the children should be able to swim safely in pool without visitors (my grandson is 6 yrs) Just a question. Know you have lots on your mind coming and going, my best bet sake and sturdy home to live there forever and ever. And do you maybe have ball park figure on home + trying to keep in mind taxes plus I realyy love this home and sadden is to lose for taxes. Know you can see, Just trying to stay one step ahead. Beautiful home Dylan:D:)

    • The neighbors have a pool in between their house and the lake.

      RLDorf on April 24, 2014 at 7:59 pm
    • Have to become friends with the neighbors so you get an invite. :-)

      JoyceinNJ on April 25, 2014 at 10:58 am
    • JoyceinNJ,

      Yes, it is always a good idea to make friends with those who have pools (and boats for that matter).

      MAOW on April 25, 2014 at 11:02 am
    • I'm smiling

      JoyceinNJ on April 26, 2014 at 9:14 am
    • I'll even pay for the gate in their fence! I'll also need to spend some time cruising around the lake in their boat so they can point out the areas to avoid and where the best fishing is.

      RLDorf on April 25, 2014 at 11:04 am
    • Very funny. :-)

      JoyceinNJ on April 26, 2014 at 9:13 am
    • You guys (Maow and RLDorf)are so funny about the neighbors, but so true. Much better friends that enemys

  5. Can't say I'm impressed with the gifts in this round. Yard sale time when we win.

  6. Hi all- Did anyone notice the "less than happy" crane this morning down on the water.It was foggy but noticed it looking around the trailers. He or she took off and the next pic frame showed some workers? Then I noticed the fishing pole against the trailer and a pair of "shorts" hanging over trailer edge as if it was drying. There were a couple other odd things. Then some workers came into the picture with appropriate shirts. It was a bit odd, but it was sure interesting.:D That house gets more amazing every day. I say Grundy(my idol) and Anitra working hard on some projects. The amount of skill that has entered the cabin is reflected on my gorgeous home to be. The fog was bad this morning so be very careful and stay safe. Love and best wishes to everyone!!!<3

  7. Welcome to 2014 where the promoters have already stated that the front is the area facing the road where the foyer is – no further clarification needed.

    Ralebird on April 25, 2014 at 3:47 am
  8. Can somebody please provide me the link for the G+ Chat with Anitra & Grundy that was done the other day, I can't find it and I don't have any more time to search for it. I am never able to be at my computer at 3 o'clock to watch them being filmed.

    Does any one know what the structure of the dock is, I have only seen wooden docks and it doesn't look like they are building a wooden dock. That would have been my question for the G+ Chat had I seen the request for questions in time.

    Also does any one know what all activity out front is?

      I hope this link works! Enjoy!:)

      stlmom1 on April 25, 2014 at 9:08 am
    • Thanks, your link worked just great. Very fun to watch.

      RLDorf on April 25, 2014 at 10:57 am
    • Thanks I was finally able to watch it and I really enjoyed watching the two of them together there's so much energy and they have so much fun what a nest job they must have! A 65 inch TV in that room is going to be phenomenal.

  9. Breakfast 'Al-fresco' for Grundy & the team this morning. Good to see all the healthy options. xD

  10. What is with the camera out in the middle of the back yard, near the flamingo?

    Jay Michajluk on April 25, 2014 at 9:10 am
    • I just zoomed in on that. Looks like a very nice / expensive camera. I can't imagine setting my "good" camera down in the grass!

      RLDorf on April 25, 2014 at 10:41 am
    • Jay,

      Earlier this morning there was a camera man using this camera to take close up footage of the FLAMINGOS. The camera man is gone but the camera remains.

      MAOW on April 25, 2014 at 10:57 am
    • Checked back this morining. I guess someone has picked up the camera. Anyway it is gone.
      Does not seem like much going on in the back yard. From what you can see the front yard is where the action is.
