Moving dirt is surprisingly expensive, turns out bulldozers aren't cheap.
But BK, Its got a such a beautiful structure on it. Might be time to downsize, really, all you need on that lot is a garage.
Yup $450000 for the lot and at least another $400000 for the house, well, septic, and landscaping package. That was a ballpark quote from the builder that built our house.
We have plenty of restaurants, grocery stores, Lowes, Walmart, a hospital, and 3 golf courses within 15 minutes. Including Trump National Golf club of Charlotte in Mooresville. Wow! 8050 yards is a long a$$ course!
That structure has got to go!!!
Boathouses are another great expense. Most of our new pier/boathouses are concrete above and below--no floaters. Next door neighbor spent $58k 5 years ago. Double concrete boathouses push $100k and most being built are doubles.
Wow! Most of the boathouses here are floaters. Duke Energy limits the square footage to I believe, 1000 sq. feet over the water. That includes walkways......
Ours was 35k 10 years ago.
I'm finding no one in FL has covered lifts. Not sure if that is due to the types of boats down there but I'm not a fan of going uncovered. The sun destroys everything.
We have those pesky hurricane and tropical storm things
Not every year! Weird they build homes and don't care if they get torn off but they draw the line when building a cover for a boat lift!!!
Yeah man cover up! Ha! Youll have to be the first in your area to have one then.......
In my area of Cape Coral they have covers made out of aluminum frames and sunbrella or similar materials for covers. However, there's building codes on height and size. I'm in a condo, which won't allow for covers so I use the playpen cover to protect the boat from the sun.
If you go to this web pages there are pictures of boat covers used throughout Florida. http://stokesmarine.com/gallery/52
I like those. I'll have to look into something like that.
I saw quite a few at the Fort Myers boat show, mostly for fixed mounted lifts on pilings though. They don't really use remove-able lifts here at all, no need for it.
