if you have 7 ackers off land then why did you put your RV where you did? Couldnt there be a better place? how did you get 7 ackers, if I may ask

I am not sure I quite understand your question, or what you mean by “a better place”; but I will try to answer it. When we bought the acreage we looked at the lay of the land and tried to figure out where the best place would be to put a workshop and a home. At that time, we were hoping to get a workshop built and put a small apartment at one end of it.

Our land has a creek near the road, then a meadow, then a hillside. We cut two flat pads on the hillside…an upper one for the workshop and a lower one for what ever we would do in the future. Since we only had enough money to run the power, water and septic to the lower pad, that became the place for the motor home. It is right above the meadow, which, personally, I like better than being on the upper pad. I would not have the same view up there as I do here.

When we moved to this part of the country, we discovered that all the houses in our price range were not really fit to be lived in. Most looked as if they needed to be bulldozed and rebuilt. They had weak foundations and other structural problems. The only thing we could really afford was acreage. Of the land we considered, this was by far the best suited for us at the time.

I hope that answers your questions. Thanks for coming by. 🙂
