    This is, after all, Deer Isle. Prices on homes have certainly gone down recently but geesh. You can’t expect something for nothing to live in such a special place. Perhaps you are making a very wise decision to go with a new construction or manufactured home. It doesn’t sound like you’re much into doing your own construction work. Good luck getting what you desire for the price you want.

    True enough and Sunshine, I think, is an exceptional part of Deer Isle.

    At this time, we would not be doing much of the work ourselves (especially the septic system). My guess is that someone who can gut the inside will come along and buy the house. I really liked the property and location… I also liked the simplicity of the cape and wouldn’t change much on the inside… just fix the mold problems and such. Others, I think would do a pretty thorough renovation and update.

    It’s damp there… the paint won’t stay on the shingles… probably should be stained or something like that. Everything I saw on the house, including pretty severe frost damage, could be repaired.

    I also appreciated that it was once a family home and had that vibe. I hope someone will come along, who has way more $$$ than we do, and do something nice with it… a tribute to the former owners.
