So now, we are entering what I’m calling Phase 2 of our search for a place to build our dream home.
We’ve pretty much exhausted all the possibilities as far as land for sale around Williamson County goes.
Now we’re branching out into all new territory — any lake in Tennessee.
The one and only thing we know for sure at this point:
We want to stay in Tennessee!
I almost had Jim convinced that we should check out Florida again.
We’ve both spent a good deal of our adult years living in various parts of Florida, and I’ve always wanted to move back.
When I showed him we could get a house in Key West for the same price we’re hoping to build one for, he was intrigued. But then we considered these factors: zero-lot lines, trailer park looking dwellings, practically no yard for the dog, and hurricanes — which caused us to quickly change our mind.
Tennessee Will Always Be Our Home
The biggest reasons for wanting to stay in Tennessee:
- NO state income tax!
- Middle Tennessee is 8 hours from anywhere
- Four full seasons, but no bad winters
- The people in Tennessee are truly wonderful
I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV.
