As my coworkers and I would roll in for happy hour they would be packing it in, heading home, or out to dinner with their wives for dinner...seemed like they had it all figured out.
this would be my dream. as long as there is an urban-like area where i can do this in an affordable way, i'd love to.

As far as I'm concerned, if I have to turn my heat on, it's winter. The heat is usually on by mid-October and usually stays on until at least late April. In fact this past year, I remember having the heat on a couple days in mid-May. Now that's completely ridiculous.

You may be trading high property taxes for high homeowner's insurance. I know ppl in Boynton Beach who pay about $8k a year in HI. Ancedotal I know but I don't think off the mark too much.
