The lot next to us

There are two lots on our dead end street that haven’t been built on … one was sold a while back but the other one just came up for sale … and it’s right next to us… I’ve convinced Keith that it would be nice not to have anyone living/building next to us so we’ve put an offer in on the lot. The downside is that there are POA fees the upside is not having anyone on that side! Wish us luck.


  1. I totally understand not wanting more neighbors. We’ve (currently) got woods beside us, but the lot was sold a while back. We’re guessing it’s just a matter of time before the new little neighborhood goes in. :o((

  2. My Grandpappy (what we called him….) always said “buy land, they aren’t making anymore of it” and I can hear his voice saying just that in situations like this.

    I’m enjoying the blue and white quilt you are working on – so crisp and clear in the current soggy weather!


  3. We live on a dead-end lane with a cul-de-sac. We were thrilled to hear that our neighbor owned the empty lot across the street – and intended to keep it that way! No fees or upkeep for us. And no neighbors across the street. Wishing you luck . . .

  4. Your mom’s blue and white quilt is striking. I don’t know the name of it . Do you have instructions for it.

  5. That would be great. It looks so peaceful where you are right now. Hope you can keep it that way. Good Luck.

  6. I so wish we had the finances to purchase (if it was ever offered) the land next to us… It was such a blow when the forest it nurtured was cut down and now I fear a factory is going to go up… But at our age I wonder how long we’re going to be here anyway….
