Interesting - wonder if it'll get off the ground? Wonder if there is any more enthusiasm over here in than there is over there back home in the UK?

I suspect not unless it's in the "psychic fair" aspects.... I'm gettin' way too cynical. Crying or Very sad

Hi Mac,

Lis and I would love to own this place, at the price we could buy it and renovate it but the problem would be to afford to live. Love to bring it back into action as it was.

Lovely area there but a lot colder than our winters here.

I think your biggest problem would be getting permission to live here at whatever cost it might be.... Wink

Certainly the basic cost is reasonable but I'd guess the inside would need gutting and renovating - perhaps doubling the original price.

Yes it's a cold area - wouldn't catch me there - don't like it when the temp. drops below 25C and there it goes WAY below that! Very Happy

I suspect a proper renovation could cost even more than that Mac sadly.

Yes we would have to have a substantial nest egg for the USA to let us in

Yes I suspect that's right - old properties are often money pits.

It takes more than just a large nest egg, Jim. You'd also need to invest and employ Yanks to get a permit to live here but even that didn't used to get you a green card.

Ministers and entertainers get different treatment though....
