    House across the street had the very 1970s hot tub built into the middle of the living room floor. At some point the coke or weed wore off and they just put some plywood over it and left it for the next owners.

    It used to be. A friend had some pretty sweet unused carpet leftovers after a local restaurant redid theirs. So I put it out there for a summer. Pretty nice when you are working on bikes and stuff to just walk around barefoot on carpet. Not so much in the winter when you are parking in there.

    Some mag did that and posted a picture. Looked like a solid party pad.

    You let your wife know that garage hot tubs are just about the classiest thing you can do. Bonus if inflatable.

    I don't mind those houses. Though admittedly, they'd look out of place next to a 200 year old farmhouse.

    The second one probably looks more approachable under the correct aspect ratio.

    It’s from the little known ‘minecraft’ school. Very influential among the 9 year old architects.

    I've been in the second one a few times. Its massive inside and has interior concrete waĺls and floors. There's a lot of floor to ceiling drapes to counter the concrete. Better pic

    I actually kinda like it.
    But I would want wood floors, for sure.
    What are the odds that there are two Teslas in that garage?

    I like it. Everything except the afterthought sticking off the right side.

    I think it might be an architectural ‘tip of the hat’ to the iconic cantilevered houses in the Hollywood hills. But maybe not.

    Looks pretty sweet to me. I’d of wanted more glass especially in the elevated room but…

    That the box on the upper right must detach, and can roam the countryside on its mechanical legs, right? Otherwise, what's the point?

    I like the box, and yeah, it need to be more functional. I hope there's a rooftop deck or something. I would at least put in an escape hatch via fireman pole (which could of course double as a stripper pole).

    We are putting our rental condo on the market and seeing what happens. Market is just too hot right now. Gonna roll the dice and see if we can't 1031 the gains into something better. If not, we will just pay the taxes and move on.

    Underestimated strategy. Cap gains are probably never going to be lower in our lives. 1031 is just tax deferment. If you can afford it, take the step up in basis and start over. Overly simplified but, it is what I'm considering. Exceptions would include if you planned to either move into your rental one day or figure out a reason to not sell it from income ever. There are also some ways to just park the money on dirt and not pay taxes but you gotta hustle to find some property associated income to make it legal. Good problems to have.

    Man, I would think that an asset like a rentable ski area condo that has been locked into an inflation protected cost and is seeing double digit income increases practically every year is a stupid thing to sell. It's like those commercials trying to get you to cash out your "annuity" income (which, yeah, is fixed, usually) for a lump sum. "I want my money now!"
    There are a lot of people in Summit county that bought condos there in the late eighties for what is now pocket change that may be living off the income of a few pretty well. Money machines.

    The world is perfect. Appreciate the details.
