Our New House

It was brought to my attention that we haven’t updated our Blog since 2013. Since we have become stagnant and haven’t really traveled for a while I didn’t have much of interest to post. Not that our life isn’t interesting, there just isn’t much RV Travel going on.

Well recently we have turned another page in our lives. We decided since we like our lifestyle so much that buying a house wasn’t in our plans. However we have pretty much outgrown the RV so…

We bought a Park Model home in the same resort where we have lived for the last 11 years in the motor home. If you are not familiar with a Park Model, it is a small 400 square foot manufactured home. Ours however is a bit more than a simple park model. First off ours is set in the ground so it is ground level, then a 200 square foot addition was added making it 600 square foot overall and the whole thing is stuccoed and the roof is tiled. There is also a 117 square foot building on the property, which serves as a laundry room and a shop. This building is attached to the house by a covered patio with outdoor kitchen. Along with the real residential appliances they topped it off with an air conditioner that can turn the house into a meat locker in the 120-degree Arizona summers. You can see more photos by clicking on the link in the left column.

I have added a link to the photos of our house HERE.

So, although we are keeping the motor home, it looks like we are not Fulltimers anymore.

Best wishes to all our readers and I hope your travels are as enjoyable as ours.

I will leave the Blog up because I know others enjoy reading about our travels.

It’s time

I have been putting off and putting off building a Casita even though Susan has been wanting one for quite a while now. The reason is because it will take up a lot of space on the lot and most of all, because it will block my views of the river and California mountains.

Well as you can see in the above photo, since my neighbors have taken care of the views, it’s time I build mine.

This is pretty much what it will look like except we are not going to do the side door and do French doors in the patio instead.

This is my tentative layout with a bath in the back and laundry in the front. The construction will start when we head for California for Thanksgiving and Christmas and should be done when we get back for New Years.

When we got back to Havasu this time I noticed our patio furniture has not survived the intense sun. Even though we cover it while gone just the time we are here and it is not covered has taken its toll. So since it is the end of the season (somewhere, not here in Havasu) Sears had all their patio furniture on sale for half off.

We snatched up a pretty nice set and hopefully since it is mostly metal it will last more than the two seasons we got out of our last set.

  1. Dan that will be so nice. Not sure if you have thought about it but front loading Washer and Dryers are well worth the Money and they are stackable. It will also provide a place for Susan to store all her Jimmy Johnson Stuff. Ha ha ha
