Hi janeAnne, yes I see and we have a lot of homes on top of mountains here.  But this home on top of this slope is definitely in a precarious posture.

JaneAnne.. This is one of the best "local" posts I have seen in a long time.  Very creative... good job.

JaneAnne, I'm with Valerie.  I love the foremat of this post!  It also looks like a good place to get a deal on some land for a future home.

Perching on a cliff may not be the most attractive choice to many home buyers and builders...

It's hard to describe the feeling of this land...the word "remote" comes to mind...

Steep Slope is certainly the perfect name for the development!  Nice post.
