Isadora Duncan authored yesterday's quote.

Today is nothing but houses. First up, if you live in glass houses you shouldn't throw stones:

It looks like a beautiful home but I'm not a fan of glass houses and not really ready to put 20 mil into one.

I've really never been called a wild thing. Well, at least not for the last twenty years or so. Wild things is what this house is called:

I love the house and love the view but I am not sure I would want to take care of the grounds!

Let's move on to affordable homes:

I really like the one in Boise and the other one in Indiana.

Comment Away.

Like you, not sure I'd want to live in a glass house, regardless of surrounding acres of privacy. Just not my thing.

Love the ranch, from the property to the house. You don't take care of any of the grounds, except the acre surrounding the house - wildlife takes care of the rest (G).

OF the "affordable" homes, didn't find anything that called my name. The one in Indiana has possibilities. However, at this stage, I don't want a two story house. Give me one story, four bedrooms (two for offices), two and a half baths, an open floor plan, sunroom with hot tub and a couple acres of land and I'm a happy camper. Oh, and make it affordable for fixed-income senior citizens. (I know, I don't ask for much).

It does look like a beautiful home, and I can imagine the appeal on a nice day, with all the trees outside. But I'd feel like I was living in a fishbowl and wouldn't like it at all at night or if I was getting dressed.

I don't think you take care of grounds like those of the second house. It looks great from a distance, but who knows?

I can't say any of the houses get me drooling, even though they are all way nicer than my current house. If I had to choose, I guess I'd pick the Hawaii one.

Just like Pat said I'd feel like I would be living in a fish bowl if I lived in a glass house.

Yes but even the surrounding grounds is close to an acre and that is enough to send me running off screaming.

I am with you on most things, especially the single level which is the main reason I liked the Boise house! I am also on a fixed income out keeping the expenses on the house even is almost impossible with property taxes and repairs. A hot tub would be nice but not required for me.

Hi Pat

I am with you on the glass house. A sunny day pleasant the rest of the time no thank you.

Even the local grounds look daunting.

I liked the Hawaii house the best until I saw the price tag!
