Re: Boats and the Condos View
We've had flooding from hurricanes along the beach here. Houses are now being built FEMA-compliant, essentially putting them on stilts or posts 10' in the air. (Some have actually taken their existing house and jacked it up. Spit-level houses look really weird this way.) Space underneath is where the stairs & cars go: nothing else. Needless to say, this blocks the view for adjoining houses, so everything is tending to go up. Hellosailor's legged house sounds like it could be left at ground level for bringing in the groceries and then hoisted up to enjoy the view. Put on some solar panels & batteries to drive the motors & things, and it won't matter when they shut off the electricity.
