I wanted a property on the coast, ocean view, pole barn frame, open concept, spectacular views.


Well, it didn't happen.

Instead got a 1 acre lot with a boat barn, a separate shop with it's own 100 amp service and a nice home. 3 beds, 2.5 baths. A weak view of the Pacific and a 3 mile commute to work.

We shook on it last night.

Signing the paperwork in a few days.

When the house is right, it's right.

The 5-burner gourmet stove, new flooring, new roof, new paint, what else can one do?


I will be dancing for nickels in local parking lots to pay for the insane mortgage.

Congratulations!

I would love a place like that, bu I am too afraid of Mother Nature to purchase a coastal property. My mother had a place on Lake Huron with the lake as her backyard. You can’t beat the views on the water.

We can smell the ocean, but have to look out the second story windows to glimpse it.

I'm pretty jazzed.

The owner is even leaving me his 1 year old Cub Cadet riding mower!

We plan on it! Chillin' by the fire pit in the back.

Planning on digging a pond at some point.

Love the Zen of a Koi pond.

Using the VA home loan program for it.


Now I know that'll kick up some dust!

It is.

The wife approved so it was a done deal regardless.

I was. I wanted to. Could never find anything that "checked all the boxes".


But we did find it.

Congrats on the new home. Maybe you should build a lookout tower (man cave) connected to your shop.

I have a big lake in my back yard surrounded by trees.
I built a fort/man cave in my back yard in the trees tall enough to see over my trees in my back yard and I can see the whole lake. I even ran an outlet up there and a pulley system to bring up the cold beer! I love it, I spend a lot of time up there just thinking and soaking in the scene of the lake and the stars.
