What a beautiful setting and a great bug-out-location, Rumblon.

Nothing wrong with downsizing, I live in about a 3600 sq ft home now, and am looking forward to moving into the rather small place I知 currently building. The home I live in now will suck a tank of propane a month during a bitter cold winter. But the place I知 building has barely used 10% in over 2 months of heating. It won稚 even use that once I install a wood stove. I plan on high fencing (to keep the deer out) and planting a large garden this spring. I知 also looking into making my own power. I would love to produce my own electricity.

Do you have a "view" of any of the lakes? My parents had, until they passed, a place on the West side of Torch Lake about a mile or so North of the South end of the lake.
Great looking place!

That sounds like it was near the sand bar? That location is still a great party spot:

The sand bar was along Chrystal Beach Road from the Bridge/Breakwater going to the East. Our place was on West Torch Lake Drive maybe a tad over half way to Deep Water Point, on the Lake. I recall that area before the Breakwater was ever installed and the Bridge was one lane. Do not ask my opinion of some of the people that partied on that Sand Bar. It is too bad neither my brother or myself could afford to have kept that place. On the other hand I did not want to listen to Jet Ski's and Wave Runner's 14-16 hours a day from May 'till September.

And the kitchen counter was installed this week. Running water at the kitchen sink is really awesome. No more schlepping water from the bathroom to do dishes.

I need to pour the approach before I can park the purple beast in its spot.

Why was this thread moved here from the General Forum? After all this is not a Surviver or Mopar project as per Moparts thread posting rules: https://board.moparts.org/ubbthreads/show...e=0#Post4831787

Just wondering why?

1Fast, beautiful!
The only suggestion I have is to extend the deck down that side and along the front where the garage doors are.
It will give you some shade in the driveway and you could maybe even include an extra beam so you could lift out an engine or pull a load out of a truck bed. More deck space is always nice too!

Thanks everyone! We had our final inspections last week and passed all of them--getting our occupancy permit. I still need to pour the concrete approach and improve our makeshift driveway before I can take the Chally to its new home.
