Two houses with no basement? I've never been in a house without a basement. Sometimes finished, sometimes not.

It's not usual to have a basement in the UK. The only houses I've seen with them are multiple hundreds of years old.

Re: Moving Home Guesstimania Reveal Thread

There are about 0 houses in North Carolina that have basements. It varies greatly by state though and ground/soil composition.

In Phoenix and places in Southern Cal most don't have many basements because the ground cant handle water and the basement would be a perfect place to collect flash flood waters.. Not sure about Vegas, but JM3 would know..

I am just south/east of Palm Springs right now and if you are board this is what velentines day brought to the Coachelle valley..

The ground is too hard so basements are ridiculously expensive to make so no one has them.

& no one had them in St. Pete cuz flooding.

Re: Moving Home Guesstimania Reveal Thread

So here's the thing: I sold my house and moved into rented accommodation before looking for another house to buy. I did this because I was moving to a completely different area and viewing houses long distance seemed tough and not being part of a chain made selling and buying easier.

Long story short I've only been in this rented place for 7 months = 0.58 years

irtm has lived where he lives for 1.6 years and Precept has been living where he lives for 9.83 years.

Correct answer = 12.01 years

Re: Moving Home Guesstimania Reveal Thread

My house number is 67, but if the movies taught me anything about American house numbers it's that they're higher than UK ones typically.

I make my guess nice and big, but alas not big enough.

Precept is gonna live at #60 but irtm is going to live at #7741

Correct Answer = 7568

Re: Moving Home Guesstimania Reveal Thread

So I live 188 miles from London.
irtm lives 15 miles from Raleigh
Precept lives 36 miles from Hartford

Correct Answer = 239

I thought that those guys would live further away from their capitals. I thought America was big. I was not alone in these thoughts...

Assuming that luke and PC94 knew what countries we lived in then they must have assumed I was moving to the Shetland Isles and both irtm and Precept were moving to Barrow Alaska

Re: Moving Home Guesstimania Reveal Thread

I remember Precept saying that his daughter wrote a letter to secure the sale which led me to believe it wasn't on the market that long. irtm was the velociraptor I didn't spot

Clever Girl.

irtm = 3 days
Precept = 37 days
xb = 180 days

Correct Answer = 220 days
