We have been very busy selling homes. For raw vacant land,
however, interest in new construction has not been as strong as in the past. Recent land sales
have often involved neighbors adding on to their property (because the adjoining land has become
quite affordable). The decline in construction is a bit ironic because the quality of tools and materials
for what you wish to design gets better with every decade. What people labored over in the past
can now be done faster and safer. The main reason for the tepid interest in virgin land may be the
tempting supply of older homes that can be purchased at a discount and remodeled over a leisurely
financial period. Directly below are two examples at newly reduced prices.
An additional reason for the decrease in new construction could be a generational shift
to be more laid back and less interested in doing improvements and building up sweat equity
in one's home.  For the young, there could also be a skill barrier or a familiarity barrier.
Young boys do not grow up with saws and hammers. Their excitement is not in creating a fort,
but instead in making something virtual and online. Maybe that's a phase that has peaked. 
People can rediscover the satisfaction in dreaming up and assembling real and tangible designs from scratch.
We didn't get the flying cars of the future (they never made gravitational sense), however, we have
arrived upon the the George Jetson button-pushing desk jobs.  Our time at work and play in this
electronic age is moments of stillness punctuated with button pushing (key pressings and mouse clicks).

Mountain Living

Let every weekend be a 4-day weekend!  On Thursday afternoon, you are wrapping up
four power days at the office and telling your friends that you are heading that evening
to Grand Lake, two hours away yet worlds apart. You've got your mobile devices and
are ready to work on the bigger picture. Friday morning, you wake up in your mountain
retreat and already .... you are thinking is more clear as you plan ahead and tie neat little bows
on completed tasks. Saturday dawns and you are fully attuned to your alpine environment
and tingling with life. The great outdoors beckons with its newness, immensity and wildlife.
Or maybe you'll just have it out your window or beyond your deck while you enjoy some
private time with your family ... or a neglected hobby ... or a book. Saturday afternoon or eve,
you are ready to hobnob with some of the other lucky fellows enjoying their extended weekend.
Dine at a restaurant, walk the boardwalk, do some shopping, cruise by the beach ....
remind yourself to have your boat ready (even if its just a kayak) for Sunday.
Sunday morning you do some outdoor church time. Now your head is really stuffed
with plans. You get a head start on them on Sunday eve and then sleep like a rock.
Early Monday morning, you zip back to work ready to hit the floor running.
Traffic is not an issue and everyone is amazed with how much you get done ...
and how young you look!
