Haven't seen the contract yet, but I'm assured that it's all signed and done as of this afternoon. We signed it a week ago. Never buy real estate in NY unless you have nerves of steel.

I can well imagine. Lucky thing you have nerves of plasteel and unobtanium, isn't it?

Nice house. Elegant.

Yes, but no patience! And a house here to sell, too! Look, Ma, no trees! (Four more will come out on the end of the house where our bedroom is...pines leaning in toward the roof.)

Wow. Impressive. I do love the shade, but for safety and sellability, openness around the house is a Good Thing.

We loved the shade, but I have to admit, his dressing room and the hall bath are now much, much brighter. And we can make the front door appealing, dress up the walkway. Kid has ideas of what should go there. One wonders if she's going to do some of the planting, yes one does.

And the trees in front of this house? They're also making the house too dark. East facing. On the right, it's hitting the electrical to the house. On the left, it's just making those bedrooms really dark. No view to speak of to the east. All the water view is to the north, the right hand side of the photo, dining room and kitchen (and where, in back, my office will be built).

It's the same design as our current house, but without the addition...that living room we all sat in one night, flying laptops. It's a big rectangle and because it hasn't got that addition, it's smaller. But we have plans to try and put our own addition on, making use of the water views on the north side.

This is the one you showed me pictures of in the kitchen, yes?

Yes, this would be the house we first offered on, the one right on the north shore, but not water front.
