Think it was rough? I had all of the needed appliances, a large flat screen TV with surround sound, a deck that looked over the river, a large acrylic dome in the center that opened and lit the inside with sunlight. If you get the chance, take it!
Reading many negative comments peppered with political drama. Folks, I am sure a Yurt can be build based on needs and requirements. For many people it's one place where they can live as they lack resources because of lay-offs, etc. I don't believe that you would allow these people to live in your spare room or backyard. If you are unable to offer good suggestions, I am sure many would not care to read it. Let's stay positive.
Building codes are very strict in the country side setting. People have moved into areas and just thought they were going to do as they please as far as building and have created problems for the local people. Thus building code rules have come about where none were needed before. Yes these agencies need to have temporary homes for these peope to put up in these hard hit areas from Sandy.
The inground homes would be a great idea, but only in well drained areas. I truly feel sorry that this country has come to the place of no homes for homeless when there are so many homes that are just sitting out there empty.
Banks need to keep interest rates low and sell these homes at a lesser price. It is all about greed.
No need to have a country where our elderly have no support, our children are starving in many cases, and we have families so totally homeless. Makes no sense, but try to get some help and it is made so hard. Those agencies that say Oh just go sign up---well it is not that easy. It is in truth in reality very , very hard to get assistance.
The rich flaunt there riches in our faces all the time. Yes they own the biusiness and thought of a great idea, but they also forget that it is the USA citizens that work at there office building or factory etc. that makes the product and keeps the sales coming in. The normal common middle class never get any respect at all. They get all the glory and money while we have to fight for everything we get.
We elect people to go into office to fight for what we want and believe in and what do we get in return---Not a hell of a lot from them. They vote themselves a raise all the time and get all these special things and retire with the same income----we citizens that pay the taxes that pay there wages do not get that and they want to take more away.
So maybe in the long run---people should buy these homes---makes sense and can be moved easily if they have to move to some other place to find employment.
It is sad our country has come down this low---some how we need to learn to care about each other again and find a way to bring all people together as a whole not be divided over every little thing that happens. If we don't start caring who will ???---do you see a foreign country help us when we have a disaster????? Just my opinion----I am retired worked for 40 years and am now for the first time just starting to remodel my home I have lived in 35 years. It is time and costs money and we are doing it a little at a time. Chin up. Life is tough, but it does not have to be as bad as it is---don't let anyone take advantage of you. Take a job even if it not something you want just to have money you need to feed your family or yourself. I worked in a factory for 34 years and believe me it was no picnic.
Good luck to all you people out there without jobs or homes, etc.----life should not be this bad here but I guess we should be glad we do not live in a 3rd world country---we can not even imagine.
I do hope that someday this country gets there sh-- together and gets its people in homes---find a better way to feed the people that have nothing and take care of its own and NOT give to other countries just for there aliance.
It's great to be retired for me---don't have alot but I just love to know I made it that far. I hope you all have that opportunity. Paa
