Saturday Steps

Once again, following in the footsteps (or is it stairsteps!) of George the Lad , is another installment of Saturday Steps. 

These pictures were taken last weekend while we were down in Myrtle Beach. These are the front entry steps to a house that was built a couple of years ago, about two blocks from our condo. We can see it from our balcony. Why, you might ask, would I be so nervy as to plop my boys on someone's property? Well, this house was built by a developer just around the time the economy crashed. No one has ever purchased it. It has sat empty and for sale this whole time. We've climbed the steps, peaked in windows, etc. because it is certainly a striking house, just one block off the ocean. You would think it would be snatched right up as it is a gorgeous house with views of the ocean even from a block away. What's the problem? Simple! This baby is listed at somewhere around 1.2 million dollars!

Now, to give a better idea of the size of this house, I stepped back a bit....a good bit at that, to get in most of the house. The boys are just small dots on those steps!

To the right of this house are two more vacant lots, both for sale, that the developer has wisely NOT built on yet! I have a feeling it will be a long time before this house and the adjacent lots are called home by someone!


  1. If I win the lottery tonight I will buy it! Everyone is invited to come visit and let your dogs play on the beach!

  2. If you don't win the lottery tonight (because I think I'm going to -- in which case I'll buy it and everyone can come visit), perhaps we can all pool money and buy it as a joint venture. It would become the first Group Home at the beach.

  3. Wow, that's a pretty risky spec house to build even in good times! Well, I hope y'all will let me and the boyz come play at your new beach house!

  4. Only 1.2 mil? Bwaaah! Yeah, I'll need to be purchasing a lottery ticket, too...

  5. Wow, what a house I can see why its is so much, it must have a stunning view from the top! Moms just said big house more rooms to clean lol!!!
