Today is the Day
I’ve finally gone and done it.
I threatened it for years…but today I did it.
I’m closing on my house in Dunnellon, Florida today. It’s about 2 miles or so to the Rainbow Springs State Park. It’s a brand new home that hasn’t been lived in which we’re buying directly from the builder (built in 2008).
Nothing fancy. It is 4 bedrooms with just under one acre. Our home in Indiana has 18.5 acres, but you get tired of taking care of that much (even when you hire out part of the work). So I found a property with less land to take care of that is still quiet and near all the parks we’ll visit.
I have a lot of plans for the backyard here to make a very nice outdoor living area. Who knows how much I’ll spend on everything I’m putting in the backyard. It doesn’t matter…as this area of Florida is pretty cheap right now because of the real estate and job problems they’ve had.
People who were on my list years ago remember when I was first looking in Florida and Arizona. It was a common occurrence. Winter time comes. I want to move. Spring comes in and it was so nice in Indiana (fall is beautiful with all the trees in Indiana).
Early April was COLD in the Indiana, although it has definitely warmed up now. It was freezing in Indiana on Easter weekend.
January had a day where it hit negative 15. With windchill it was negative 30.
At the moment we still have our Indiana home, but we will either sell it or rent it out by the winter time. We’ll begin moving down here sometime before then.
I’ll post a couple of photos or a quick video sometime later. Off to go to the walkthrough and closing.
Take a look at this underwater photo of the Rainbow river (looks like I’m going to have to take up canoeing or kayaking with this type of gorgeous water nearby).Related Entries:
