@tjbnwi 
I realize now that the sale listing I linked had changed after it was first brought to my attention.  It sounded like the house from heck with every surface damaged or spray painted - even the bathroom sink and tub.  And the unplugged freezer full of meat...  The person who told me of this listing said it would go for far more than the listed price even in that distressed shape.
I guess a complete rip out would let a person have the home the way they like it...  I wonder what it would cost to just get it back to new walls alone..

What employment in the area is supporting homes in the heated market?   Or are there a lot of speculative investors messing with the market?

@Ross Davis

The area has 6 military bases and a lot of government contractors. These 2 things drive the market.

I hesitated on another CT-22 for the Kapex and it sold hours later. I have a bunch of bags for the 22 since getting a long-life bag for it so it would have worked out fantastic. Ended up modding a Steel City mini-inline DC with a chunk of D36 hose to deal with the Kapex. That DC was gold; I dunno why they discontinued it.

Just 2

CT 36 and recently added a CT-15 dedicated to my Kapex.

I will add having one dedicated to the Kapex was a good choice, I didn’t realize how often I was changing but some units you can add an additional outlet but I never really looked into that as an option

CT33/boom arm for use with MFT/3, and a Midi 1 for 'On the go'.

A Midi dedicated to the miter saw
A Midi with Oneida cyclone for bench work and cleanup

Everything else gets attached to the dust collector. In a 1200sqft shop with one person, this is doable. Sometimes I wish I had more, but that just takes up space.

Do have a M18 vac that sits in the trailer for site work, but I rarely use it. Mostly just gets used to cleanup after emptying cat litter trays...

2 older style Fein Turbo I’s (variable speed) with the blue Rockler cyclone buckets.  Not the most space-saving setups but work nicely in the shop or on site.

A CT-sys with CT cyclone.  I feel kinda meh about it.  The systainer integration is nice.  And a M18 vac which is handy on-site or in places I don’t want to lug the bigger vacs.  Did some nasty crawl space cleanup recently with it.

Been wanting to add a CT AC that’s better suited for drywall work at some point but the Feins are doing...fine.
Current systainer to productivity ratio:  very high

Four:
1. Midi usually set up under and dedicated to the miter saw;
2. CT 26 with a Dust Deputy and homemade platform for attachments and small tools, this one roams the basement shop;
3. Oneida 1.5 HP Mini Gorilla on rollers near the heavy sawdust makers (planer, table saw, lathe); and,
4. Milwaukee 18-Volt Cordless Wet/Dry Vacuum for the garage.

CT 22 and CT 26 for me. Would love to have a Mini or Midi to move around the house, but would be overkill. Also a Felder AF22 for big machines.

CT 26 that replaced a dead CT33. Mostly stays in the shop but gets to visit job sites sometimes. Love love love the Bluetooth!
Midi. Shop, job sites and sometimes comes home.
CTL-Sys job sites
I just got a compact DeWalt 20V vac. It’s the quicker picker upper and is proving very useful and is always in my truck.
And if we’re talking dust collectors in general then my Oneida V system 3000 cyclone takes care of the big stationary tools.

Do you have trouble with your foam and paper filter loading quickly and causing the alarm to flash? I loved mine for about a week, and now every time I turn it on, I have to clean the filter.

I had a Midi (older model), that I was very happy with until it was repurposed for generic household chores (including vacuuming cars) since it gets the job done in a jiffy. So, for the shop I had to get the CT36AC with Bluetooth. Now all my workflow is centered around the CT36, and the midi at times does double duty with odd jobs.
