future homeHigh School and college teach absolutely ZERO life skills. There should be a course on life skills. In fact, your senior year courses should all be “Life Skills”. I am responsible for the marketing budgets of a $150 million a year sales force, I have been a chief architect in some of the most advanced automotive seo and automotive social media marketing strategies in the marketplace today and yet when it comes to buying my first home, I am completely lost.

It’s no secret that I probably couldn’t hammer a nail straight in to a board if my life depended on it, but I never knew there was so much to know. Is it to this code or that code? Heights of stairs from beams? Length of span on a cantilevered deck? Joists and hangers and WTF!? And Radon… F’ing Radon! Some people say it is complete BS, others say you’ll become radioactive overnight! Air mitigations systems and air make-up systems and AAAAAARRRRRGGGGHHH!!

I just want to buy a sexy house on a lake! OK, there is no doubt, the house is sexy. I just want to get past this “problem phase” and in to the “buying phase”… The pictures really don’t do it justice, but here are a few more:
