In a permanent structure, hopefully well insulated.

I don't really know ,I've lived here in Maine for over ten years ..as far as a good job market ,it'd probably be Portland, most affordable is where I am in far northern Maine ..

As far as the people ,they're alright...I see mostly kind people when I go out

They pump your gas at a couple stations,and the stores bring your grocery bags to your car ... Taxes wicked cheap and most everything else is too as far as that stuff

A lot of French people ..

Winters are usually brutal ,summers are usually very mild though

Have lived in Maine during college summers and worked southern Maine mostly as a sales rep. I luv Maine. If you like the ocean the coast is gorgeous and seasonal. Portland is a cool city-liberal, open-minded and weed is legal. If you want more specifics PM me.

Near lobster docks is best. In fact on the docks is best — that’s where most of work is, but not necessarily jabz.

Beware. It is highly conservative & a woman I knew had this romantic view of the state. She was back within 6 months complaining about the narrow mind set. But the lobster was cheap.

Nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there either for the reasons you stated...plus, it is so cold...two friends of mine moved there looking for a simpler life and moved elsewhere in less than a year...same thing happened to me when I moved to coastal Alabama...beaches were nice, but....

Too expensive and too close to California

My friend who goes there all the time likes Portland (Maine)... it's the most progressive part of the state. Depends if you want isolation, coastline, living on an island or just an affordable, civil place to live. Large parts of the state are extremely conservative and provincial (especially the areas bordering on New Brunswick. Another friend grew up in Presque Isle in the Northeastern part of the state and couldn't wait to get the hell out of there and is not a fan. The coastline is gorgeous.

Lack of manufacturing can be a negative. High tourism jobs around bar harbor freeport etc. I am not from there, my ex is. Spent many vacations traveling around Maine.
