All of these houses, which are priced to be affordable by elderly people on Social Security, were adapted to their rural Alabama location by use of features such as being raised on piers, having front and back porches, and enjoying rather high ceilings.

When I read this I alternate between being happy for them and feeling jealous.

Jealous because in the Bay Area not only do I have no hope for a house like this, but I pay more than this in rent very very quickly.

It's a beautiful house, Joyce. Thank you for sharing this.

Or how about, Bay Area prices with no where near the average incomes

That house would sell for well over a million in Vancouver!

Yeah, James, I'm beginning to think the Bay Area has it all wrong.

Oh: Cue the Lynyrd Skynyrd.
