spiragui...following your lead, I looked at the WIKI for Ruxton Island. That was a pretty sparse writeup, so I added a whole bunch to it so now it looks like there might even be people living here!

Thanks again for the search tip...I don't think anyone has mentioned that before.

I guess that means you found Trevor's ad for the house.

But hey, you've seen it all before anyway Jim!

Thanks for the kind words anyway!

Yes I did find the ad, I have seen it all before but the way he has it in all the photos just makes it all the more beautiful. Your home is yacht quality Keith, you really did a fantastic job. Not really kind words, just the truth.

Thank you Jim.

I have just posted my sincere thanks to everyone involved on the vote thread, no sense in repeating it here.

Maybe we should have an online party when you depart the island for the final time.

Hey Jim:

I tried taking a 10' stepladder down to no man's land and getting a pic of the whole house.

Didn't quite make it far enough away to catch everything on the first try.

So I moved the ladder back to where I was only about 20' away from the neighbour's property to the south.

First two pics will give you a view of how the house is situated on the lot and the last one is looking at the ladder from the master bedroom deck. It's quite a distance away!

The camera was close to 13' above the ground on the first two shots.

Wow, absolutely beautiful, it is just like I envisioned it all together. Seeing it all just amazes me how you built the biggest majority alone. Thank you for going to the trouble to take the photos buddy, I appreciate it.
