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.

Brown White Gray

Our Casita has going from Brown (wood) to white (Styrofoam) to Gray (scratch coat) on the outside. As far as the inside, the drywaller has come and gone. He did the final sanding of the texture coat this morning. I was expecting to get right in and do a primer coat today but the stucco guys showed up.

After they were done with the scratch coat I just had enough time to get in and clean up all the sanding and drywall dust and do a little masking. Tomorrow I will be doing the primer coat. I will give the primer a day to dry then do the final paint. I have the tile guy scheduled for Monday so I need to get the painting done before then. The scratch coat stucco needs about a week to dry before they do the final brown coat. I still have switches, light fixtures, vanity, and toilet to install but it’s getting close.
