Your new home is super and I like it a lot! If you wouldn’t mind, would you sketch the floor plan?

Kelly,its a beautiful home and i know your dream has come true,i love it,didnt you say it had a barn? if so we can get to some serous horse hunting. James

KellyGa    Posted 02-28-2005 at 19:28:06       [Reply]  [No Email]
No James, this doesnt have any outbuildings, but we can get one eventually. Needs to be fenced too. Thanks :) She will have to wait just a little bit for a horse, got to have proper housing for him/her ya know :)

Very pretty. Looks like a great drive for a snow blower.

KellyGa    Posted 02-28-2005 at 18:20:32       [Reply]  [No Email]
Dave, you wouldn't believe it. Ian has passed over looking at this property several times. The reason being, with a paved drive like that, you would think it is close to the road, and we wanted to be way off the road, well, I'll be tarred and feathered! It is way off the road, and paved! The folks must have paid a fortune to have it done, but I sure do like it!

Very nice - Cool porch
Does that lil golf cart come w/ the deal?

KellyGa    Posted 02-28-2005 at 18:18:48       [Reply]  [No Email]
Ya know, I noticed that once I started looking at the picture. Unfortunately, that was nowhere to be seen when we looked at the property, so I guess

We thought we would never find exactly what we wanted, to picky, asking for a miracle. I mean, we wanted a full front orch, a screened in porch, I wanted my laundry room in the house, not under the carport in a little laundry room, freeze your butt off in the winter. I wanted a nice big kitchen. Ian wanted a garage, and he also wanted the porches. SHelby will get the whole upst airs, so you know she is happy! One room up there will be her playroom, the other her bedroom and there is a bath in between the two rooms. She can have it, I hate stairs! Ian says, yeah, and there will be no sneaking out when she is a teenager if she is upstairs, LOL! WHere would she go? There is nothing out there!!! LOL!

Ye done good Kelly. I especially like the style and the porches.

It is not like the tacky south florida style houses with their ortamental little peaks that are being built around here.

You are smart to invest in real estate, Prices are going crazy down here

Thanks :) I am just so excited. Its not the 31 acres, but its enough, and te house more than makes up for the acreage, because at the 31 acers, it was just an old mobile home that we were going to stay in until we could build. So, I am very very happy :) I know Tip will be, she can runa nd run, and the chickens can free range to their little hearts content! I know I won't be able to get us out of that pool come August! Ians mom and dad had an inground pool, and now an above ground pool, and he uses Baquacil (sp?). Do you recommend that or chlorine? The baquacil makes our hair gummy, don't really like it when we go swimming there, maybe he is putting too much in?

(Let all the pics load so you can see all of it)

This is the next door neighbor, just sold for a million dollars. Boy, we think we are moving up in the world, and we are still considered the poor white trash compared to these people, LOL! (Now thats just a joke, I don't really think I am trashy, just messy sometimes, lol)

OH yeah    Posted 02-28-2005 at 18:13:32       [Reply]  [No Email]

Thanks Don, its been a long time dream, can't believe its finally happening :)

Chlorine - is rough on your skin and swimsuits (New-Gen you can insert a joke here). It is tough on everything ... its bleach. It takes more chlorine to keep a pool clean than the alternatives. It also takes more of your time. Chlorine needs daily attention and weekly shock. You can't swim in a chlorine shocked pool for about two hours - unless you don't mind the skin peel that will result.

Alternatives - Baquacil is one of several Peroxide-based pool chemicals. You add/test weekly. Peroxcide is not weakened by sunlight like Chlorine. You shock monthly. You can swim 15 minutes after shocking.

The cost of running chemicals through a pool is about the same between the two options.

You filter is VERY important. Hopefully it is a DE filter as opposed to sand. DE catches a lot more than sand. We'll get into the filter conversation at some point. I am sure of it.

I preferred Baquacil (actually the generic peroxide-based brand). Low maintenance and great results. Never experienced a "gummy" feeling. I would tend to believe there was something else in the water that needed treated too. Water samples and good pool supply companies are great.

Cool, I will be calling on your expertise through out the summer :) Nobody puts a dang cover on their pool out there! Every house we went to, it wasn't closed up properly for the winter. So, its going to have to be shocked good. I will go with the Baquacil then, sounds much better, and more effective. Thanks, be talking to ya.
