Nope, no snow there! Could you send me a PALM tree for my back yard? Maybe UPS has special tree boxes??

I really like the natural look of the wood. It looks peaceful too.

They look livable to me--I'm moving in. MB

I guess our respective types of white stuff on the ground are of a different nature. Delightful!

I really like the look of these, Lois Anne. You make them appear serene and inviting. I think I could be quite content to spend a few years there.

Dear Safe Leif - I have contacted UPS on your behalf re: the shipping of palm trees from Florida to MinneeSota. UPS says they could probably do it if you could pay for it. I said that would probably be a problem.

But, and here's the bad news: UPS said one of Florida's palm trees, accustomed to balmy breezes, would not survive the trip from the airport to your place in a UPS truck what with the bone-chilling cold that is typical of MinneeSota this time of year.

Nice try, though.

They look old indeed and it seems there's a fantastic view from there!
God bless you!

Jacob said...

@ Cezar - They are actually just a few years old! Inside they're quite nice and modern.

Art thou posting Lois Anne's beautiful photo to spite those of us who slip on ice, cough in the cold and want a palm tree over their heads right now? ;-) Just kidding, I like cold weather!

Tricia said...

Ok is there a 1st floor to that place or is it just built up that high due to hurricanes?

Jacob said...

@ Tricia - The most damage from hurricanes comes from storm surge. Thus, new building codes generally state that a building along the coast must be built to certain specifications which includes stilts or pylons ... in this case I'd guess about 12 feet ... so the water can wash underneath and not wash the building away.

Boy this is a beautiful place.

Tricia said...

My goodness, Jacob, that IS really high - but I would imagine it's necessary, though!

Hilda said...

This was a mill?? Or was just the location of one? Whatever, I like the architecture!

Jacob said...

@ Hilda - Yes, these condos are built on the site of the Old Fenimore Mill. I posted on this before here (which includes a link about the history of the place):
