    Pretty excited about first home build but have so many questions!

    Following. I am in your same boat. Looking for around the same thing. I've done lots of research on "finishes"...and have some great ideas to use inexpensive finishes in replace of high end finishes. Keep us updated on what you find. Please feel free to PM me if you have a negative experience...

    Before I ask the question I should mention that I do have a realtor, but I want an unbiased answer... What is up with all the new construction that we have going on that doesn't include a garage? Or they have a one car garage with parking for one? Where are people supposed to park, or store...

    331 bridge Construction

    The new bridge is way higher than the "old" bridge. If they are planning on keeping it, it looks weird to me. I'm to young to remember the draw bridge that was there originally. But, I did enjoy reading about it in the book "the way we were". After reading the story of Clyde Wells, I had a...

    331 bridge Construction

    My daughter asked me yesterday as we were going over the bridge, what is going to happen to the old bridge? Are they going to sink it with TNT like they do in the movies? Just curious if anyone has an answer? Fun to watch?

    Why are posts so vague on this thread / long term rentals?

    I know of a four bedroom 2000 sq ft house in Eagle Bay that is about to come up for long term rental. The price is $2100. This is a great family neighborhood with a restaurant and a public boat ramp to the bay. When do you need to move in? Pm me if interested.

    Terra Mar Apartments Raising Rents

    If the rent is rising that is good news for me! Maybe the housing prices will go up just as equally. Supply and demand folks. I hope to make money off my house in the future!!

    New stuff at Grand Boulevard

    I am scared of the congestion it will bring. As of this week, which is probably the busiest other than the holiday weekends I can glide just past GB before hitting any traffic. I could always count on shopping at GB without any real hassle. I hope I am wrong. I love chicken sandwiches just as...

    Pizza in Seagrove

    The short drive to Grayton is well worth it for The Pickle Factory. It's super thin and non-oily and doesn't make you feel like a greasy blimp afterword. I don't normally eat pizza due to the fact that id rather waste my calories on chocolate cake. But the tai pizza is so good...I think it...

    County Wants State Park Land at Topsail for Beach Access

    Why are we even discussing this? Let's use the money being spent on talking about it on our schools. Waste of time. Leave our beautiful parks alone!

    Moving to South Walton, tell me about the schools

    So dramatic people!! What ever happened to being positive? Last I heard, the largest population of our schools are the parents of the children that we send there. If all the parents would volunteer and be present it would drastically change our classrooms. Let's see all of you sign up...

    Bye Bye Seagrove Village Market Cafe

    Then it's just bad architecture. I would've somehow built something to blend in with existing buildings. "The way we were" before the new structure was built. The modern building could have easily been "old Florida design" with exactly the same square footage as the future building. People would...

    Bye Bye Seagrove Village Market Cafe

    I get the whole impact fees. I don't get that our roads will be more dangerous for walkers and bicyclers. I also get that it was sold. I think our local govnt is not protecting what this town was built on. I think it's sad that we are selling the buildings that are considered "historic". We...

    Bye Bye Seagrove Village Market Cafe

    Anybody out there have any statistics in how many weeks we are at 100% capacity per a year. We are not in a shortage for hotel rooms. With more rooms we bring more traffic, which we are already having a issue with. The difference is a private company comes and and builds, then the tax payers...

    Bye Bye Seagrove Village Market Cafe

    It amazes me that Walton county does not take action to protect our historic buildings. We are not in shortage of amazing architects, you would think we would celebrate the life of Ed Walline and what he did to build our little community. He figured out how to build those little concrete block...

    Gregg Allman to Rock Gulf Place May 28, 2014

    I think there is a more tactful way of marking down tickets. They could have done promotions through our local retailers so not to hurt anyone's feelings. When promoters do that, they are setting themselves up for backlash. The same thing happened when SEASIDE attempted the Jazz Festival with...

    Gregg was awesome!!! Was very disappointed that the "super" VIP packages were not advertised to the general public. This included a table with chairs, food and Grayton Beach Beer. I guess we are not that important enough in sowal to have the privilege of paying extra for the "super" VIP...

    My Wish List for SoWal

    A Trader Joe's would be great at the Sandestin Market Shops!!! I've thought that for years. I wouldn't mind an auto parts store on 98 in SRB also--I'm against all fast food, and huge big box stores. Further in Destin I wish we could get a crate&barrell or a West Elm. Maybe by Destin commons...

    Wanted Will dig perennials

    Was wondering if anyone in the South Walton area is willing to let me come gig up some of your mature perennial plants? I am looking for things such as iris, day lilies, or daisies...I don't have anything to share, but when these plants mature, I will surely pass them on. You can PM me. Thanks!

    Metal detecting & Disc Golf

    There is no official disc golf course in SRB. I tried to get one at Topsail State Park last year, but they declined due to not having enough room?? I'm pretty sure they don't understand the game, and that trees are usually hazards in the game, and that no tree would be harmed in the construction...
