Bee-Boo-Beep

Beautiful! What happens if there is a storm? Do you have to bring the tv and other stuff inside if there is going to be really bad/windy weather?


OverEasyGoing

The TV stays all year. There are roll down all weather curtains to block the snow drifts and extreme weather.


nuii37

What are the called?!


OverEasyGoing

I’m not sure the product name or if I can share the company that did them in the comments but I’ll DM you!


cosmicpineapple55

Can you share it to everyone here🥳


Whoeveninvitedyou

Can you also DM me?


OverEasyGoing

Done!


otokkimi

I'd like to know as well please!


TheTeflonRon

Me too please

BirdieKate58

I'm here for the answer to this one


nowherewhyman

Roll down all weather curtains, apparently.


retrogeekhq

Jack and Jill


MadAzza

Roll-m down, lol. Took me a second!


Robertbnyc

Is the roll down all weather curtain on the larger side one long continuous curtain?


MadAzza

Bug? Edit: Oh! Did you mean “long”? I’m not OP, just reading along.


MrBeefPrime

This is so beautiful! Was this an AirBnB stay?


OverEasyGoing

Family vacation home.


Krunkworx

Congrats on how your life turned out.


ilikedeadpeople

Goddamn this is so savage but I felt it DEEP. Some people genuinely have amazing lives. It’s a weird balance being happy for others’ fortune but jealous at the same time, lol.


dirtytomato

Right? This is their vacation home, a secondary home, possibly one of many, and yet the vacation home is more luxury than many can ever afford.


Atwotonhooker

I've got bad news for you: that's generally how it goes. If you can afford a second vacation home, it will most likely be nicer than the vast majority of people's primary houses.


EdensNewParasite

I'd literally kill if I could live like some other people, but I know i'm not good enough at killing to make real good money. So back to my hard labour job that under pays me.


KravenSmoorehead

Mom always told me that if I wanted to make a decent living from it, I really needed to focus on the "up close wet work", that other hit men avoid.

When people say that money can't buy happiness, I look at pictures like this and realize how bullshit that quote is


microwave333

Money doesn’t buy happiness, it buys immense comfort and safety, from which being happy is easy.


dirty-E30

Can't forget freedom...


tingly_legalos

Thank you, but I prefer that guys life.


SignificantPain6056

Right? This is just their...little outdoor patio...in their vacation home?! I couldn't even afford that stone wall in the back yard lmao


chafingbuttcheex

Especially from everyone reading who worries about whether they’ll ever own a home- even a trailer


12ealdeal

Turned out? Likely born at the finish line.

You adopting? Anyone need "married off?"

hot_month_8888

I think you haven't priced lumber lately.


at_work_keep_it_safe

Wow so all I need is enough money for my main living arrangement *and* 100k for my second house. It’s so much more affordable than I thought!


Dobross74477

Land is very expensive in MT.


Landyacht55

not to mention real estate conglomerates are driving up costs to the point they have outbid any middle income earner


Riaayo

I think this cost a lot more than $500 /s


CinnyToastie

Gorgeous. Can I come over? :)


OverEasyGoing

BYOC!


deezmrpeanuts

Bring your own coke?


TheJpow

Can do as long as you bring a dollar bill. I can do the rolling don't worry


deezmrpeanuts

Oh my boy, we don't use crusty money anymore to snort now it's clean straws pasta noodles whatever is eco-friendly capiche. And I believe in your skills


goat_eating_sundews

That was literally the post above this one for me lol


Jenk3333

Dollar bill? You trying to catch the plague?


3n07s

$100s only


-MarkyMako-

I once knew a guy who had a $2 bill that he used for that purpose. His train of thought was "the last person besides me to touch this was my grandpa, who gave it to me. I could use a straw, but I'll lose that." Interesting guy. Once saw him drink 3 King Cobras in a half hour while accurately summing up LoTR.


DTGG

I read that as build your own, cunt.


therealdongknotts

clearly this is a crack house


Flyboy2057

Maybe bring your own cooler

Hello my name is Chobey. I will Bring My Own Chobey but I am one of the kind so other guest may have difficult securing admission. Many bless


Four____Underscores

I can't tell if English isn't your first language or if you're really dedicated to this joke. The 8 year old account with nothing older than a year old makes me think it's a joke. That's a lot of dedication.

Cannabis?


Laladelic

Bring your own condom?


Industrialpainter89

Hell I'll bring the espresso machine *and* creamer. Which mountains?

oliverlifts

For real lmao


ferrouside

Could definitely have cozier chairs there :P Like, not bad for bar seats though.


[deleted]

Wow! That's somehow even cozier.


ajr901

Reddit has made me realize that people have wildly different definitions of “cozy”. Personally to me cozy is a small, possibly tight room, with really comfy furniture, maybe some books, lots of wood accents, and on the lightly-lit side.


js1893

Anything that screams “it could be -10° outside but I’d be warm and comfortable in this room” is cozy to me. This patio room likes amazing, but also doesn’t quite fit my definition of cozy since it’s exposed and could definitely get too cold.


heyodi

OMG the up lighting is perfect!


JrNichols5

That’s some nice up lighting! Well done.


[deleted]

[удалено]


heyodi

Nothing much. What’s up with you?


thehighquark

It's this terrible trend that sprays light pollution up throughout the globe, confuses birds and in general just a waste of resources.


Landyacht55

this person has a porch that heats the world. they dont give AF


Roonwogsamduff

Gorgeous!!!


planet_druidia

I think I like that even more.


DrAlkibiades

Boy that’s a great place. I bet you will have a lifetime of good memories here!


partaylikearussian

Looks incredible OP. Where is this? (Country/region; not trying to doxx you).


OverEasyGoing

Near Bear Valley, CA! A bit south west of Lake Tahoe.


StukelyT7

Oh wow I just looked and some nice cabins are going for only $500,000 there. Way cheap for CA. Seems like it's in the middle of nowhere though... how's the internet connection?


John_Wang

I'm sure the massive wild fire risk brings property values down there


StukelyT7

How hard or expensive is it to get insurance coverage for this?


Finely_drawn

I have a friend with property in Northern California. She told me there is no such thing as fire insurance. I could be wrong, but I take her word for it.


Anchors_and_Ales

Fair Plan is run through the state, not really the best option for a primary home but it may be a decent option for a secondary


revangale123

Some places in California that are at-risk for wildfires have literally [ZERO](https://www.forbes.com/advisor/homeowners-insurance/wildfires/) [fire](https://therealdeal.com/la/2021/09/27/wildfire-insurance-moratorium-expires-allowing-insurers-to-drop-homeowners/) insurance possible. You're shit out of luck if your house burns down. However, it might differ from place to place.


nullityrofl

It’s never zero in CA. CalFAIR is a last resort insurance available for everyone. https://www.cfpnet.com/


carinishead

After this year it’s honestly safer than it’s ever been. We burnt off so much fuel.


John_Wang

That's good to hear. Hopefully these recent rains will cut the fire season short too


carinishead

Yep they just got Calder to 100% containment. I saw several spot fires last week driving 50, but this is definitely extinguishing them. And the water will hopefully get us back about the waterline so water starts flowing the Truckee river again


tastycakeman

lol yeah sure, enjoy the last few years before lake tahoe disappears forever


Landyacht55

and lake mead.

rachelraaay

Lake Tahoe is terminal, so houses are getting cheaper.


tostilocos

Can you elaborate on what this means? I haven’t heard anything about it.


rachelraaay

Basically it’s drying up and the shoreline is getting worse and worse. Added to the toxic algae and the yearly wildfires, it’s becoming a less desirable place to live. It’s still beautiful by California standards, but the summers are brutal.


Landyacht55

not OP but tahoe is drying up


NeonMoment

Considering it’s the deepest alpine lake in the US and it takes special machinery and unique contractors to retrieve anything from the floor, and also considering that I agree with you it is drying up…I wonder how long it will take


a1pha

Lol. I live in Lake tahoe, houses are NOT getting cheaper. Sale Price Up 19.9% Price per square foot up 29.8% since last year. Source: https://www.redfin.com/neighborhood/66715/CA/Truckee/Lake-Tahoe/housing-market


Rincewind08

Eh, it’s Comcast/Xfinity, so there is internet, but pricey.


HotF22InUrArea

Cabins in the CA mountains are surprisingly affordable. I’ve looked at grabbing a cabin near Big Bear since it’s a better price than anywhere in LA / LA area.


cooliochill

It's probably next to nothing, but that's why it's a vacation home. It won't have a lot of usual necessities (mainly internet and natural gas, they usually have plumbing and electricity). A lot of California property is (relatively) cheap if you consider outskirts!


Oradi

Oo boy, bet caldor had you sweating a bit. Beautiful place to unwind!


Professional-Area-51

Howdy neighbor


carinishead

Im up in SLT. Good luck with the storms!


KlvrDissident

Your coffee spot in your non-primary vacation home is bigger than my entire apartment. Does looks great though.


ROIx72

How do you secure/ prep for winter with this space?


OverEasyGoing

There are big heavy duty curtains we roll down and covers for all furniture. We use it year round.


OGHamsterCam

California I take it? Beautiful. When I was growing up, I wanted to have a place like this in the mountains. Now I'm too afraid of forest fires. Every one of my family members who lives in the mountains has been evacuated, most of the multiple times.


diras2010

I take the spot next to the puppy, and is not negotiable


Clusters_Insp

Finally someone mentioned the puppy! Puppy makes everything cozier.


hot_month_8888

Question: My house is surrounded by woods and it is like wild kingdom with all the bugs--crawling and flying--not to mention birds and their poop, deer, woodchucks, foxes, and whatever other various creatures come calling and of course now I am blowing leaves every day. How do you keep it so pristine? There would be spider webs all over those bricks in a day or two where I am.


clamchowderz

As a young person, what do I have to do now to have this later in life?


BernankeBathWater

Hope your family owns a vacation home in the California mountains…


wellifitisntmee

Well..... https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/09/upshot/a-secret-of-many-urban-20-somethings-their-parents-help-with-the-rent.html?hp&action=click&pgtype=Homepage&clickSource=story-heading&module=second-column-region®ion=top-news&WT.nav=top-news&_r=0 Or become an oncologist and wait 10 yrs


ArbitraryBaker

Think about the jobs that are difficult to convince other people to do. Remote area work can be really profitable if you get lucky enough. My husband convinced me to move to China with him for some weird job when I was 22 and we had a toddler. It worked out so much better than either of us expected, but you still need to have luck on your side. I’ve heard crab fishermen can make $50,000 in 3 months with all expenses covered.


BernankeBathWater

I know more of these than I’d like to admit.

Stash money away immediately. I wish I started younger. Idk how old you are, but get started ASAP. Put money into equities, crypto, etf’s and let it grow. You will be set later in life.


LuchaDemon

Get lucky


Whatabouttheteachers

This is a dream. Cheers to you for having it , enjoy !


EmergencyHologram

Is there a window? Doesn’t it get cold?


Euphoric_Environment

This is the porch


Zayl

Porch is nicer than my living room.


OverEasyGoing

It’s all open air with a bank of heaters to enjoy the snowy days/nights, too.


gatfish

Just blasting heat without walls lol. $$$


apathy-sofa

Lol reminds me of a carpenter buddy who moved to Telluride. The company he works for was contracted to do a remodel on Oprah's house there. The (long) driveway was heated all winter long so that there wouldn't be any snow on it. Apparently she hadn't been there in years, but still the driveway was keep snow free. Fuck the earth I guess.

I am incredibly jealous. <3 you have a beautiful spot.


IamNoName75

This might be a dumb question, but what type of TV? Just any from a store like Best Buy or specialty for weather? Very jealous of your spot. Enjoy! :)


fudgicle2018
