Thanks for the replies. I was hoping that a buyer gets a chance to review all terms and conditions ahead of time, not under the gun at closing.....

Hey Susie,

Is all this stuff in the one same home? That would seem weird to me - to have a home with a metal roof AND an eco-friendly gravel roof. But I'm guessing from your question that these are various features from various homes.

I have a Victorian home and many of them do have metal roofs. Mine has various areas of original tin roofing, newer standing seam metal roofing and original slate roofing. I even have a small area with asbestos tiles in the back (last forever). Metal roofs are extremely durable. With a bit of easy maintenance here and there they can last MUCH longer than any other roof. What they typically need, if you it right is the occasional (7-9 years) power-washing followed by 1-2 coats of Calbar WB roof paint. If you wait too long then they need some scraping as well as the powerwashing. The trick is just getting on a nice proper schedule and not waiting too long so that it's nice and easy. There does not have to be cooling issues with metal roofs. A combination of insulation and a Radiant Barrier will be very very effective and keep your utility bills way down. Radiant barriers can be installed after the fact and for not much money at all - figure $500 or less and to do it yourself.

The fiber cement exterior will also be good to keep the sun from overheating you through the walls.

I'm not a huge fan of Pergo floors. But I'm a big fan of real wood floors. But hey - check it out and see what YOU think. That engineered floor stuff has come a long way and perhaps it's really tasteful? Or limited to an area where it's appropriate?

The flexible piping used for plumbing now is very good, much easier to maintain and add onto than traditional copper. Nearly all new plumbing is done with this stuff.

The "bedroom might not be to code" is interesting. Provided that it has a window, is heated and has a closet, it's usually a "bedroom". Is it missing the closet?

the "lake easement" stuff is a GOOD thing - that means you have direct use of the water from your property. I have this too but it's called riparian rights where I am on the river.
