When I saw it I could only say, wow, a house that's solid and smart, and my inspection found no flaws.
The MLS could read, "Move in ready! Turn key living! Well insulated split level with two master bedroom suites. Large enough for the whole family, and plenty left over when you become empty nesters! The second bedroom can be used for storage! Great foundation, new roof, and able to withstand whatever nature throws at it, from wind and rain, to ice and snow! Special sun-shading canopy provided in summer! All local codes are satisfied, and even exceeded to employ Best Practice construction standards. Residents not anxious to move, so offers need to be real."
Obviously a popular neighborhood (I saw a half dozen of these nearby), this little beauty will not last long on the market.
And a busy family lives there, coming and going while I was watching. Well, it was a Saturday. Maybe they were, um, shopping.
This one and every one of the nests nearby were sitting on a triple-crotch split somewhere on a tree, just as this one is. Not a single one was different. And all of them had residents that were busy, coming and going, carrying things to, and from, the nest. None was lower than 40 or 50 feet high.
Nature, and instinct, is remarkably consistent. None lacked proper standards for longevity, insulation and strength. Would that we Two Legs had such consistency in our building standards!
