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.

Down to the final touches

We are getting down to the final touches on our Casita. I got all the cabinets in and just installed and calked the countertop this afternoon.

I am pretty anal when it comes to these things. It takes me forever since I have to stop and analyze it and decide the better way and the future impact if I need to get to something or change something in the future. What the heck, it’s not like I need to be in any hurry.

We even found time to squeeze in a St. Patties day party here at the resort.

Susan has already made use of her washer and dryer and saved us a lot of money not having to feed the machines in the laundry here at the resort. I figured with the money she is saving we will have the casita paid for in about 13 years.

We are still without transportation. Last I heard they were still waiting on a part for our car. This has put a bit of a hurt on getting supplies for the Casita. Good thing Lowe’s is within walking distance for the little things. We have great neighbors all around us here that have offered their cars and trucks to help us out. I made use of a neighbor’s truck to get the cabinets and countertop. I will be giving the shop a call Monday morning to get another status report on the car and remind them we are without transportation and see if the repairs can be expedited at all.
