Dacula, Georgia .. our future home.

Thought I'd go ahead and make a record of blogs for the day (and hey, btw - the system sends automatic notices to our family.. so if you'd like to have that removed and just visit our blog at on your own time without the reminder - just drop me a note!). Lots of other cool stuff on my site too!

The big news of the month is we are one step closer to our future custom home! Earlier this month we closed the deal on 6 acres of property located in Dacula, Georgia. (Picture
at right was taken on closing day) Its 20 minutes from where we live .. further up 316 towards Athens. Click HERE for the google map! While it is in a bit in the country, "Waterford Estates Subdivision" was developed into 9 parcels with covenants, so hopefully we'll have a good foundation to keep up the value in our property. The property is 250' wide x 1100' deep. (2nd picture is taken from the back - view towards the road. We were VERY pleased with our realitor Mignon Hooper, and old neighbor of John & Judy Ahlers - she found this property in foreclosure and thus made this all possible.. bring us one step closer to our dream! If you are in search of a realitor that will exceed your expectations.. call her, you will not be disappointed!
The plan ...seriously dependent on the economy/market... is to build a custom home with 3-5 years. While that is a way off, we are already playing with floor plans and discussing ideas so we can save save save UNTIL then! :) Stay tuned! For now.. we need to find a way to 'bush hog' this piece of land - anyone have a tractor nearby ?! :)
