Cute house, Mary Ann. You will be cozy and will fit into a retirement community soon. Looks like work is continuing apace, and will be done on time. There will be some little nit-picking things, but that's the nature of new construction. Yet another new adventure.

How exciting to be that far along on building your retirement dream. Retirement life is certainly different than I ever imagined, but this journey has been exciting to share with you!
No plans on the horizon for us, as we have 8 young grandkids 10 minutes from us, and we have an inground pool in the backyard. Pool is always full in the summer. As they get older, we will move into town and find something smaller and easier to maintain, though still stay in our school district since the 3 GKs we babysit for live in the same school district. Congratulations on your new home and moving closer to your son!

Thank you! Yes- we are excited- but overwhelmed for sure. This has been such a long process that began back in May and the one month living in this rental feels like 3! LOL!

But we are taking it step by step as so many things are coinciding with this- hubby's retirement and all that it entails being the big one.

The small home will work for us being we have such a small family of 3 and will not be entertaining tons of people. The home is actually more spacious than it appears and it is great that it is all one level. Big pantry and washer dryer right off the kitchen, as well as a nice sized dinette area. Two bedrooms, two full bathrooms, the living room, that is it!

If I buy a Roomba my cleaning will be even easier! Ha! Ha!

Your situation sounds wonderful also with your family so close to you and the pool! I love a pool!

The realtor says when we come up in a couple of weeks we should be seeing even more progress. I can't wait to finally see it! And also the other homes he is building that will house our neighbors!

A back deck would fit nicely if there was a door from the main floor.

When we built our house decades ago, we built a ranch because we didn’t even like stairs in our youth.
Thankfully, we did that right and just have 8 acres to maintain. 6 1/2 acres a farmer farms for us and we get 1/3 of the proceeds. We can get all the mowing and trimming done in an hour. I plan on staying in our present house for another 10 years and hubby thinks forever. Lol. Can’t wait to see more updated pics

Yes. Some people have patios in the back and even fire pits and some have a little bit more property there and it is flat. Our side in this section of the development just drops down. Hoping the builder puts a fence there behind all the new homes on our side.

But anyway we don’t care because we expect to sit out on the front porch and not in the back, so we are good with it. We don’t barbecue either. Gotta get 2 Adirondack style rockers and a table to put my wine on! That’s all we need!

The walkout basement would have sold me. Very cute house.

Our home in Wisconsin is 1250 upstairs, we did finish the half basement, but now we never use it, and never even go in there. Unfortunately the laundry is downstairs. 1250 is plenty of room, we actually have three small bedrooms and a great room. The third bedroom has a desk, a futon,a tv, and my sewing machine. It doesn’t have enough closets though. Back when we built it, we had twelve stay for a few days, and my kids had many friends stay downstairs which has a bedroom, bathroom, and family room, about 650 square feet.

Closets will be an issue for us, too. We could have used one or two more closets and/or a bigger master bedroom closet. So more things will have to be stored in the basement as there is no true attic. Hopefully that will work out.
