  1. Got mine in 6 weeks. Probably still would not have it if I had not called them to inquire about it.
  2. After waiting 6 weeks, I called. Got it one week later.
  3. Renewed for a lifetime on March 17th. Still no permit after 6 weeks.

    I agree, this is the time. Interest rates are going to go up and housing prices are rising. Land around Nashville is going to become harder to find.
  5. Questions on Building a Home

    You're probably going to only do this once. Do it right the first time. Get everything you want. It doesn't cost a lot to upgrade now. It will cost a lot if you decide to upgrade later. I was not really as concerned with getting along with the neighbors as I was with my daughter being able to sell it one day and get most of the money back. The house has to sort of fit the neighborhood.
  6. Questions on Building a Home

    I'm retired and wanted to spend the few years I have left sitting on a boat dock. It's not a big house but it's a nice house for $250,000. My friend built a 1850 sq ft all brick with standard 8 ft ceilings and 6/12 roof pitch for $187,000. It has hardwood and granite with 2 1/2 baths with tile showers and tray ceilings in the great room and master bedroom. . All the house that I would need. I just hated to build it on a $350,000 lot next door to 6,000 sq ft million dollar homes. I was afraid the neighbors would kill me. Anytime you vary from standard size building materials the price skyrockets. If you can live with standard 8 ft ceilings and 6/12 roof pitch you can build a pretty nice 1850 sq ft house for under $200,000.

    That $250,000 did not include the land. Two acres of land on Ft. Loudon Lake cost $350,000. It does include 10/12 roof pitch, all brick, 6 ft wide x 8 ft tall windows in most rooms, 2 and 1/2 baths with tile showers, hardwood and tile floors throughout, granite countertops, two car garage with 8 ft tall doors, 400 amp electrical service, 9 ft ceilings throughout and 12 ceilings in great room.
  8. Questions on Building a Home

    I am in the process of building a new 1900 sq ft home right now. If you can find one you like already built it will be much cheaper. I am building one because I had lakefront property and wanted it on the lake. Mine is all brick, lots of glass, steep roof lines, hardwood and tile floors with 9 ft ceilings. It is supposed to run about $250,000 when finished. My neighbor is building one right next door, same size but stone with giant stone fireplaces and timber beams. Same builder told him it could not be built for the $300,000 budget he is working with. I have another friend who used the same builder and got a 1850 sq ft brick house with 8 ft ceilings and got a very nice house for $187,000. So I would say price is going to run anywhere between $110 to $150 per foot depending on what style home you want and how exotic you taste is.
  9. Once you owe so much that you can not pay your bills the amount no longer matters. If I owed $1,000,000 it would no longer matter if I owed $5,000,000 because there is no way I could ever pay either amount. The debt works out to $166,000.00 per taxpayer. The average amount each family in this country has in savings is $9,600. I'm not an accountant but I can see a problem here. How many taxpayers could come up with their $166,000.00? There is no way this country can ever pay off 2o trillion dollars so what difference does it make now whether we owe 20 trillion or 40 trillion. We are headed for bankruptcy as soon as interest rates return to normal levels either way.
  10. When Trumps debt increases exceed Obamas, I will get concerned. Until then, I am on the Trump train and enjoying the ride.
  11. When you think about it, Think if you will feel like standing in line 45 minutes at the DMV to renew your permit when you are 95. LOL
  12. To quote a famous politician " At this point what difference does it make." We owe 20 trillion thanks to Obama. The ship is going down no matter what Trump does.
  13. You're assuming that they never go up in price. They could pass constitutional carry or politics in Nashville could change and 5 years from now they might be $100 a year. I just eliminated the gamble. By the way Oh Shoot, I'm not taking any financial advice from you since I listened to you before and bet all my money on Hillary.
  14. I got the lifetime at 66, because I am afraid they might not let me out of the nursing home one day to go and renew it.
  15. I just went and renewed today. Bought a lifetime for my wife and myself. At age 66. Had to go in person as they wanted a new photo.
