Re: The Riveteer Pulls Up Stakes!

Gina, I know how much owning this piece of land means to you. It's wonderful owning your own piece of the earth, living on it, and being able to change it to fit your needs.

My Memorial weekend was spoken for a long time ago. Perhaps you will need more help in the future. Weekdays are doable for retired folk.

Going to Katy TX for high school grad stuff. Y'all will have a good time . What's for lunch? hotdogs and chili are easy, good and inexpensive.

Congrats - Might want to take a look at this website, once you select spot for the Riveteer and start clearing - it provides some information on setting up a fire safety zones. https://www.ready.gov/wildfires

Your other place looked nice so I am anxious to see how you develop this one.
Keep everyone posted on your progress. Should be interesting!

Re: The Riveteer Pulls Up Stakes!

Big day, big change!





Rushed over straight from work. Got to watch the crew finish up the New Driveway.




Hard to believe what a huge change the driveway makes

Re: The Riveteer Pulls Up Stakes!

Congrats. There's something about owning land that's not totally coiffed and still wild. Peaceful is the best word that comes to mind. I hope you enjoy yours as much as I do mine.

Thumbs up Re: The Riveteer Pulls Up Stakes!

man, you are really doing it up nice. you weren't kidding about the trees and cover...massive. i suppose you have water, electric and sewer arrangements worked out. lots to do i bet. you can even get one of those keypad gates to keep the rif raf out. Is this picture looking from the road or the other end? (i would guess its from the pad site)

Re: The Riveteer Pulls Up Stakes!

if its a square lot or so , i'm guessing its about 250 foot per side. good room to spread out and buffered from neighbors.
