Last night we hung out with a couple from San Diego. They’re here visiting the Nashville area with the intention of scouting out possible places to live. They’ve seriously considering moving from California to Tennessee — a longtime dream of theirs.
Turns out, they found some helpful information about the area from our Franklin website, and we’ve been corresponding via e-mail for a few weeks now.
When they arrived here in Nashville, we met them at their hotel & drove them downtown. We all spent the evening roaming around Nashville.
How does this relate to our search for land???
Well, in talking with them, Jim & I thought of a whole new angle to our search for a place to build our dream home…
You see, Beth & Bruce are only looking for places on the water around Nashville. They are avid boaters (and Jeepers!… and dog owners!), so they are primarily interested in lake homes in & around Nashville.
Which got us to thinking…
We’ve only considered the possibility of having creeks around our house up to this point. But what about considering LAKES?!
We could be avid boaters. We love the water! And lake living seems right up our alley.
What were we thinking?…
How had we not considered building our log home on a lake?!?!
We've gone through the entire process of designing and planning every single detail of our dream log home! We have the blueprints… and the land… and the contractor… and the goal for our log cabin home to be our retirement home. Before you build (or buy) a log home, I have a slew of helpful tips for you — to plan, design, build, decorate, and maintain your very own rustic modern log home. When I'm not fine-tuning the log home of my dreams, you'll find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
