    I thought of this but that is where the mechanicals for the house currently and to relocate them upstairs is not an option as space is limited. My other thought was to attach a garage and move the mechanicals in there and weatherize the underside of the house I stated in the post above, but...

    I'm sensing this is common theme to everyone.

    I believe I understand. Due to work I am also marooned in MA for another 3-5 years as I start slowly transitioning my life away. I am envious of everyone here who seems to be so far ahead of me in this change. I wish I had started this process sooner. If I may ask what happened to your driveway?

    I have not been looking at the counties as I have been doing my search. I have never really paid attention to the counties as a visitor so thanks for that info. Is county government important like in states like NY or is county government not as important like MA?

    Is the 3hr drive comment a begrudging 3 hour drive comment? I am contemplating the long drives and I know with snow it can be slow going. Is the long drive off putting or do you just get used to it for the reward?

    I wouldn't normally look so close to civilization but the properties are fairly large with acreage (farms) and so it may provide me the independence I am looking for. Like everything else its going to come down to the Cinderella moment. If anyone is interested there's a nice project property in...

    Were going back up to look at the 3 season camp on Friday and then swinging over to the Campton Thornton Lebanon Newport Grafton (not in this order). Land. farms. and camps. Any thoughts on geothermal heating? Costs? Anyone have experience?

    I've been an outdoorsman my whole life and good steward of the land. I know lots of people move places and retire or move and try to bring their baggage with them or move next door to a horse farm/gun range/ etc and complain, that is just foolish. I am a military person and have lived all over...

    My kids are all enthralled with your progress from the little ones to the bigs. The anticipation is really exciting to watch as they envision their own project. Thanks for sharing.

    I think the hardest part of decision making is assuming (hopefully) this is the last house we will own is the fact this will be the last place we will own. It's 50% knowing is this the perfect home/land and 50% I can look at pretty much anything and go "I can do something really awesome with it...

    You folks have been really awesome and have given me a lot to digest. Hospitals are important as my youngest has type 1 diabetes and from time to time we need to see the doctor to update his condition at least for the next 12 years or so ( he was a surprise late in life ). Some of the locations...
