Moving forward - week one and two

Greenfield, CA

3 weeks ago we signed a sales agreement
 to build a house in Salinas.

More about the house:

It's in a Century community,
they have homes in areas all over the country.
You can see what our house will be

We have the Juniper model,
the Bungalow.

The house will have more gray tones and a front porch.

 We are having them put
a bedroom on the first floor for Mom.
She'll have her own bathroom with walk in shower,
grab bars, and taller toilet.

The first floor also has a nice great room, dining area, 
and big kitchen with an island.

Upstairs will be the master suite, laundry room,
and two extra bedrooms.
George is making one of the bedrooms a den,
(or man cave to get away from 2 females) :-)

There will be a nice backyard so Cooper will be in heaven.
We plan to have a garden back there, and a nice patio.

Last week the builders built the forms for the foundation...

This week they have the plumbing set up..

The foundation should be poured Friday!

Living in an RV for 7 years means no furniture,
so we went shopping this week!

We bought a bedroom set..

..a dining room set..

..and 2 barstools for the island in the kitchen.

Ashley Furniture was having a great sale!
Walmart was also having a nice sale,
so George bought 2 TV's.
A 65" for the great room,
and a 55" for his 'man cave'.

Things are coming along!

At the RV park it's been very hot!
110° yesterday, going to be 102° today.
The US Open golf tournament is being played
at the Pebble Beach golf course.
It is here every 10 years,
and it is well attended.
The park is full,
mostly golfers wanting to go watch the pros play.

We have the Vilano for sale,
if anyone is interested it's listed here:

George and I will miss traveling,
but it's time for a new chapter.


  1. I’m so glad I had an opportunity to meet you while you were in Oregon. Your home sounds beautiful. I hope you continue to blog.

  2. So beautiful! It looks like a gorgeous location also!! Have a great time watching your home coming together!!

    Good luck with your rv sale. We have had a few nibbles so far. Hopefully we both have good luck sooner rather than later.

  3. Wow! There’s more cabinets in your new kitchen than our entire 5th wheel! Looks like you will be doing a lot of shopping. Hopefully George will put a wine cellar in the man cave for you.

  4. Looks great. I think everyone should have an exit plan, sooner or later.

  5. As I've said...... life is about change. Wow... that house is going up FAST. I am imagine your excitement as I remember your excitement at the start of your RVing years.

  6. Wow, it's going to be gorgeous! You're going to have a lot of fun watching it get built from the ground up.

  7. The home is going to be so beautiful. Wish you and George the best in this new chapter!

  8. Very exciting! It won't be long until they are framing and you can watch it go up!

  9. Very special that your Mom will be able to live with you and have her own space. House is beautiful.

  10. Your new home looks beautiful. We were shocked when we went furniture shopping. Prices had gone up so much and I'll bet you noticed that as well. I know you'll enjoy it.

  11. It's so great watching your next new adventure coming to life. We're so pleased for you! :c)
