we live where you vacation: Fiddlers Cove, Tamassee, SC. A private lake community - 04/10/19 07:55 AM
April means Spring in the foothills,  the lakes are coming to life with flowers, and trees in bloom. We love this time of year. One of my favorite lake communities is Fiddlers Cove. While the dam is being repaired, now is a great time to build your seawall and dock on this beautiful wooded lot with a creek along one side and lake in the front. Mountain Views, sunset views and a very private setting among the 50-100-year-old trees. This lake makes a great getaway close to Clemson, Greenville, shopping, and events. Just 1.5 hours from Atlanta, 1 from Greenville,  if you … (2 comments)

we live where you vacation: Your Giant List of Prepping Tips for Tiny House Living - 03/27/19 07:44 AM
In the foothills of SC, we called them "cabins" or hunting shacks. Now they have a style upgrade and called "Tiny Houses". Building on a private lake or in non-restricted (Non-HOA) community can make this dream happen for so many. But you will be down some back roads and in Rurally located, such as on one of our beautiful private lakes.

we live where you vacation: Yes, Virginia, There Really is a Garage!! - 01/17/19 09:08 AM
I feel this way about closets, basements, and garages. 
Yes, Virginia, There Really Is a Garage.

While searching for a house in Houston, I reminded myself of some of the staging posts I’ve written. I have had the “joy” of looking for a house...starting online and then seeing it for real.

One area that always surprises me is the garage. Now in the area of full disclosure, I did not even look at the garages when we were out house hunting. But at least one person (Larry) made sure that it was one of the first areas … (1 comments)

we live where you vacation: Curb Appeal - 01/16/19 06:29 AM
Sometimes we need a little help and Inspiration Station always is there to guide the way. I enjoyed this blog post, it got my gears turning toward Spring, even though there was a hard frost overnight. 
Ahhh Spring, with the blossoming cherry trees and daffodils popping up, it makes now a great time of year to work on one's curb appeal.  After all, we don't want potential buyers cruising by your listing without taking a peek because of a poor first impression!  Set the tone for what's to come...it's like a marvelous path of warm cookies leading to the perfect home.
As real estate pros, … (2 comments)

we live where you vacation: Weltanshauung? It is okay to laugh at me while I try to pronounce it. - 01/09/19 07:21 AM
"Weltanschauung: the guiding principles and philosophy of an organization; a world view"
ActiveRain is based on many of the principles, which all fall under the Title of "Weltanschauung" My favorite being #7 (there are many). "We encourage a dissenting and contrarian points of view because our industry is better served by a continually examining of the status quo."
