we found a campground about 5 years ago that we absolutely fell in love with. So much so, we sold our travel trailer and bought an existing park model (think mobile home), with a 250 sq ft addition. Fast forward, last fall we decided to put up a new unit, and spent literally 4-6 weeks choosing the ideal site. Kind of forced the issue to pour the cement RIGHT NOW (in October). What a great decision that was. Our original plan was delivery on 4/15... thanks to covid that shifted to 6/18. After we poured the cement, we got a knock on our door, is that your cement? Are you selling this place? How much. Wife and I had already decided on a final selling price, and they said SOLD. We agreed on 6/1 turnover, which they graciously extended to 7/1. Even tho we wer barely functional, we held to the 7/1 date. It's been a bit crowded living in 400 sq ft with previously 650 sqft of living space. Construction debris, dust, and noise while I'm working from home. We added more cement, and today added even more. Apparently 100 yds of cement wasn't enough The 400sqft of add on room (stick built) is finishing up the drywall. I've put in surround sound speaker wires for in wall speaker. Added a support board for 65" TV and my reloading room (and safe) are doubled joist with kneewall directly under the safe. We're siiting under the deck overhang listening to streaming music tonight and enjoying adult beverages. Our long term plans are to live here 6-8 months and travel the rest of the time. We're buying a '22 model year Super Duty truck and 5th wheel that same winter/ spring. Sitting out here on the deck enjoying adult beverages, it's extremely peaceful looking over the water. We've made the right decisions. Even the campground owner came by thanking us for being one step ahead of them... not like it's not my profession to manage large scale projects Our long term plans were to sell the B&M house in 3-5 years... that may get pulled way ahead. Covid showed me to be much more effective working from home than even in the office. I still need to go in from time to time. But, it's an 1:45 from the campground. so for now, I plan to be in the office one day a week, still need to check on the house once a week. And besides, golf league is on Monday anyway! Peaceful doesn't even begin to describe this. The risk is, since it's a campground, we're at the whims of the management. The current managing director is very aware of customers, and his partner, heir apparent to being GM is also very aware that "full time" residents keep the park open. Will we ever get our money out of this, absolutely not... but guess what, I DON'T CARE .
