Since the subject of my stereo has come up, here it is. Excuse the dust please, I am still unpacking. And, for those that notice the preamp is obviously newer than 1972 I replaced my C28 preamp about 9 years ago.

I am very happy here and the screened breeze-way between the house and garage is a great place to sit and watch thunderstorms.

From 1989 to 2004.... 6 months each in two locations.

Illinois campground... 400sf park model 400sf add-a-room 400sf deck 2 strorage sheds.

Florida over 55 retirement community... 1000sf mfg home with storage shed.

Totally comfortable for both, and made our downsize from 2200sf home easy. 700sf w/o extra storage might have been a little bit too small for us. without some extra private space, togetherness might be a question mark.
Location makes up for size... both homes on or next to lake.
Price was important to us total for both homes under $100K, so a different reason for owning.

Re cliff erosion... BIL and SIL had a beautiful 3000sf oceanview home near Plymouth on the top of an ocean cliff, back in 1974, about 40 ft from cliff edge. Both their home and the house next door were victims of erosion and are no longer there (circa 2002). As they say... "Location, Location, ...ulp gone!"

Looking at the Real Estate page for the house, found the "Big Lagoon" company... an interesting concept:

I'd look pretty stupid with my having such a small house with 4 cars, 2 boats, 2 ATV's and a fifth wheel trailer sitting out front.
