    Misc ICF Or Concrete Built Homes

    Good point on 5" loss of sq ft in usable living space and that might be a deterrent for many as every inch of usable living space becomes critical. I think in terms of financial profit, along the coast concrete homes add value and I believe home sq ft is measured on outside of home. There is...

    Misc ICF Or Concrete Built Homes

    For a reasonable and good ICF contractor consider ABW Construction, Ron Griffin #(850) 678-8352. ICF way to go, get 6" core and save bigtime on home insurance & utilities.

    Misc New 30A Home Construction Cost

    The prices quoted are quite amazing relative to several years ago and unfortunate more reasonable pricing cannot be achieved. This is not a good sign or trend for working families in S-Walton. I have heard rumors of quality subcontractors inflating prices and sad this is affecting your dream...

    Builder Fee Included In Cost Per Sq Ft ?

    I would assume included. Personally as a homeowner, I like "fixed cost" contracts, but need to get the contract and spec sheet tight under this situation.

    Just some input, covered porches do add to cost and affect pp sq ft, but get the largest screened-in porch you can afford and ensure that it is functional to use as a living area with maybe tv, fireplace, etc. For 9 months out of the year, you will enjoy this area as a living room.

    30A Rats

    Just a public request, please don't kill the black racers! As John G shared, when you walk out the door they'll scare ya, but they are very important to have around. I have one that hangs around the house and always share with the next door S-T rental guests that the snake is present but harmless.

    30A Rats

    Rats & Mice are a major problem in FL, many businesses have these small black-grey boxes along their side & rear walls. These are bait stations, they go in and feed and then go off to sleep forever. Many people might object, but it does control the population. If you don't control the population...

    When the snakes are run off or killed, then the rat-mice population increases. You get one or the other. :)

    I think people are hesitant to answer because construction is going gangbusters in Walton county. Right now is a supply-demand pricing situation with good contractors & subs.

    Cam"pain" Signs

    I am curious, do the number & prevalence of campaign signs get candidates elected, thoughts? Anyone know the research on this? I suspect that in most cases this is true, especially when I speak to uniformed voters as they tend to vote for subliminal name recognition.

    Granite is nice but has its limitations with cleaning liquids, quartz is the best but more expensive. They have come a long way in making quartz have a natural stone look.

    Advice! Building a cottage: Dream Or Reality?

    Everything is gangbusters now, all the good builders are wide open and whatever the market will bear is the price, not sure of your time frame and when a downturn in the market will occur for best pricing. You might find someone to give you a "ballpark" but it also depends on your allowances...
