Re: Small / Economical Build

I'm looking for the same thing.
It will be on a raised slab.
I like a decent front porch, don't want the expense of any masonry half columns and won't need any guardrails.
I'm stumped in this regard.

Re: Small / Economical Build

Corner lots here have the extra tax liability forever of the streets and sidewalks.....

As someone that is paying over 3% a year on taxes and insurance, almost more than my 15 year mortgage's payments were. Homes aren't quite the investment asset they should/could be in our current tax and spend governments era.

the trick is choosing options that increase your homes value to you and yours and resale value, but aren't taxed at their true worth.
