.....and oh yes we have lists, my DP prints them out, notes price reductions, commute time to the nearest tennis club, compares tax rates and pro-rates them out over the next 10 years; he is the one to prioritize, catorgorize, homogenize and pasturize everything, I look at the kitchen and imagine hosting an open house and greeting guests at the door and ushering them in.

I agree to the keeping the land open. I love seeing the fields while I drive around. This is one of the benefits of living in this state.
Where on the north shore do you work? I grew up in Ipswich and loved it. I love my place in Maine now with all the snow, etc.

I think there is a short circut and perhaps you meant to respond to someother poster????but highlighted my quote. But, I was born in Ipswich but I dont work there or anywhere else for that matterI am currently living in southern california and trying my best to get back to Maine. (I feel a bit like Dorothy Gale explaining to the Wizard..

Sorry Elston. So you are an Ipswichite? Great. It has really changed a lot. The field across from where we lived is now all houses and I never thought that would happen. It was a great horse place when I was younger.

Many Thanks BlueSky! Good thing we're a close family. I usually am awoken to some kids cold foot on my back when they sneak into bed with us at night!

We lived in Essex right next to the Universalist Church as you drive down toward the boatyard. I was still a baby when they moved so I really dont remember it, except I went back some years ago to touch that part of my life, and lo and behold I met my namesake who was in his 90's and who told me tales of when I was born and my parents were just starting out. I even saw the apartment he rented to them.

I know just how you feel! For us, on several occasions we find something that seems perfect and head up to take a look only to find the back half of the house is missing (out of the MLS pictures of course) or just unrepairable and shouldn't even be listed as a house. Oh well, We will just put our fate in Gods hand and he will lead us home! No Worries.

I am just finishing up on a historic renovation on a 1800's era house in Hingham MA. Its been a terrific job and Hingham is nice in comparison to the rest of MA that I've seen. That said its been 3 long months of commuting and being away from my family and I'm glad it's about over.
Next is a big mid 1800's house in Concord NH - only 20 minutes from home.

Still looking for that late fall 2008 project in Maine.
