Final Day in my Pa House

The day I did not expect to come for another 10 years is upon us.

Movers show up tomorrow morning to pack up the Pa house. Putting everything in storage for the 5 months the new house is being built. Moving to Lewes Delaware tomorrow! Renting a home that is normally a summer rental while the new home is being built. Will only be 2 miles from the new home so will be able to watch the progress of the build.

Always thought the beach move would be to Corolla, but life comes at you fast, and I had a chance to do this now. Corolla was too far from an International Airport for me to make the move in my working years, but Lewes is only 2 hours from PHL, and 2:15 from DCA. With my frequent European trips (When COVID ends) I needed to be near an airport with Non Stops to Europe.

The good news is now my commute to the OBX is only 4.5 hours not the 7.5 it is now.

Good luck.

Watch out for the DC traffic when you travel that route.

Moving from a long time home is always bittersweet! Good luck w everything. Lewes is a great spot and surprisingly, as you know though, close to so many things!

Best wishes for you Bill. Being close to you're new build, enables you to eyeball the work as it's occurring, which we both know it often critical to keeping sub-contractors from taking shortcuts I was forced into retirement, which for years I believed would occur in Nags Head. Well,man plans and God laughs. I broke my neck at the hangman"s vertebra after a fall from a roof and woke up 3 days later with a halo. So we sold our Pittsburgh house and moved to Wilmington NC. Do what it is that gives you happiness because, one never knows what is in store for them tomorrow!

Congratulations!! How exciting!

I spent a week in the area for the first time in July, quite nice. Have a beer at Crooked Hammock for me! (And another at Dogfish Head if they ever reopen for dine-in service.) Beer

Post pics of the progress. Best of luck!

My rental is about a mile down the road from Crooked Hammock.

All moved into the rental for the next 6 months as the home building gets underway soon

Looking forward to build updates.

Our neighbors in Corolla just moved down fulltime last week from the DC area.
