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.

More changes

Some rough plumbing went in today but now I want to make some changes.

Not too serious and this is the time to make them since the walls are still exposed. The original plan was to have the water heater in a cabinet so we don’t have to look at it.

The plumbing for the water softener, since I don’t intend to install one was going on the outside of the water heater cabinet. I wasn’t too concerned about the plumbing location of the softener since I wasn’t going to install one. Well I found out that I may be able to stack them both in the Water heater cabinet, which makes more sense, and if I ever do want to install the softener it will be out of the way. Tomorrow I will break the news to the plumber so he can make the changes. Hopefully it will be acceptable.
