tim5055 Posted November 21, 2014 Report Share Posted November 21, 2014 Well, some of you may remember that we have land in the mountains of NC that we plan(ed) on building our retirement home on. We already have a Morton Building with both storage for our RV as well as an efficiency on the side. With our move to SC we are now only a little over 3 hours form the property and find we spend ever second or third weekend there. I have always figured that building would be at least $125 sq ft (low end) to who knows where on the high end. Both the wife & I have a condition which causes us to "make it bigger", like well we can add a few feet to the master bedroom, how about a bigger family room, we could put a gym over here..... I think you get the picture. A friend has suggested looking at existing houses as prices are still way down in the mountains. The is a house about 1.5 miles from our property (same road/same creek) that looks interesting. Nice fit/finish - not custom, but upper end builder quality. The floorplan seems to work for us and I can't get over how much it appears we can save to buy existing. If we bought it we would keep the existing property as both an offsite guest house and our own private campground on the creek. I have extended water & electric and have a nice drive so we can get the camper there. So, what am I missing? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
