L is for Lake
Hubs and I are water people. It's our happy place. We love looking at it, swimming in it, and boating on it. Our plans for someday have always included a house on a lake. A house with a dock, and a deck from which to sip our morning coffee. A spot where the view inspires deep thought or no thought. A place where our sweet girls and their families could look forward to visiting when life allows.
Someday is now.
Well, almost now. We're on our way to now. The house isn't built, but we've got more than a plan. We purchased a lot on our favorite lake and we'll build a house there. South Carolina.
We've never built a house from scratch.
I hear it's kind of a big deal.
That first photo was taken standing on the lot. Our realtor snapped this photo from his boat when they were out checking water depth. Water depth matters to boaters. Also- where does the sun set and do skiers turn around here and is the lot a gentle slope and a whole bunch more.
Our lot is more or less center there. We're on a point at the edge of a cove, which is exactly the sort of lot we hoped to find when we began looking in earnest. The house you see on the left in his photo belongs to our future next door neighbor. Hi Neighbor!
I'm kind of all about the view.
Which is lovely.
Our lot is still thick with trees, many of which will come down in the house build. Those that don't come down will be limbed halfway up their trunk to open up the view. We're pretty excited, but are keeping that in check
