Gotta disagree, this whole thread is based on a stupid question

I thought it's all been pretty darned funny! There are some very witty people here ...

Just remember that some builders are MUCH "better" than others and be prepared to 'splain yourself!

I want to move ashore.

What is the best house for us, a family of 4?

How much will our monthly costs be?

Re: What if Dwelling on Land Were the Exception Rather Than the Rule?

I am having trouble understanding the dirt people laws? Specifically, Is it true that i can refuse to allow an armed law enforcement officer to search my terra-hull and pavement dinghy with out them having permission from a dirt law overlord or a specific reason? Also, I've heard that if you dont pay the dirt harbor master and the terra-hull owner association a percentage of what they think your hull is worth they can take it from you?
Another thing I find strange is most dirt people dont make thier own electricity?? the decks are huge, and they could a 10kw solar panel up there easily.
Dirt people are always complaining about the cost of fuel to run thier pavement dinghy. Odd, becasue most of them have these huge inboard engines for thier pavement dinghy, the inboards are big enough for a 25 ton ship... all of that hourse power is just wasted becasue all of ther navigable pavement ways are no-wake, the col-regs are bizzare.

I have a real problem in this neighborhood. I moved here in the 70's and it was a hidden treasure. Now there are houses all around me and they are way too close together. And to top it off a new guy showed up yesterday and is going to build a house right next door. What really gripes me is I checked the city planners office and instead of a proper basement foundation they are going to anchor their property on a cheap slab. I can just imagine what happens in the first storm.

They all play music, have kids cycling around the neighborhood and throw "BBQ" parties together and make noise. We've been invited but we don't know them and have no interest in knowing them.

How do I make all them relocate to the other side of town so I get my quiet area back?

Is it true that dirt homes don't go bump in the night. Who has the right if way? I hear there are dirt homes you can move on wheels. They must cost a lot more than regular dirt homes. You could move that to the other side of town.

Re: What if Dwelling on Land Were the Exception Rather Than the Rule?

I've just spent $500k on a TWO storey house - the extra story is for safety -if the ground floor catches fire I can simply move upstairs.

and it also means that I don't need to learn anything about living on dirt - whilst simultaneously knowing everything.

The good news is that there is no law about needing Stairs - so I don't have any. The Real Estate salesman told me that was a smart move on my part.
