Ok so ... the decision was BUILD! We have bought a 1.62 acre plot in a small new subdivision (50 parcels, 49 houses) in an adjoining town. Only one person has started building and we intend to build in a year. We're going to pay off the land first and take this year to design, interview builders and finally begin the building process. This is a really nice piece of land - it's 176 feet across and in the back, has a creek. There are 9 water lots in this neighborhood and we got the last one. I am really excited to say this is not a manmade creek or lake - it's a natual creek, made by the joining of two larger creeks. It has a lot of vegetation and a lot of wildlife. We are very excited and so relieved to have made a decision. So ... there you go ... let the plans begin. I'll post more as the roads are built (this summer). We close on the land May 3rd. Then it will be OFFICIAL! Let the adventure begin!
