Jerry...I'm shocked. I went to read about the open houses expecting to read your expert opinions on all of them...but alas, no posting. You're slipping. C'mon man.

Just a fun aside to this week's House Hunt — that glorious waterfront house that's at the end of Ferncroft Road has an insane amount of armoring at the shoreline. Do you really need all that to protect from boat wakes?

. Just got back in town Ray- as usual a wide variety of homes for sale. Some are better than others, of course. Non outstanding this week. I really feel saddened by hugely expensive homes on prime waterfront showing the effect of no money whatsover being "wasted on design". I have a new PatchBlog underway on just this subject. Do stand by.J-

. K- It's a "waterfront house" all right- but not so "glorious"- as far as the design is concerned to this experienced MI residential architect. It really does sadden me to see the fewer and fewer remaining waterfront properties used in such mundane ways. Here's a link to a WebSite of mine showing examples of how I've been make island homes a lot more interesting. It takes an expert.
