Since I had yesterday off my husband and I had a nice relaxing day, just the two of us. It was so nice, we even got to see the new Captin America movie! After the movie we took some time to drive around to all the mobile home parks in Edmond to see if we could decide where we'd like to park our tiny house when we do get enough down payment to order it. I have to say, I was very disappointment with the options available. Of the 4 neighborhoods we saw only 2 of them looked as though they had any open lots and none of them looked like they were nice enough neighborhoods to commit to for the next 5 years. Dreams = temporarily crushed. Where are we going to park our home???
The only answer I can think of is to purchase the land first and then buy the tiny home whenever we can after that. Land is a big expense we were hoping to avoid right away but I'm just not going to be happy living in any of the parks in Edmond. My husband and I have decided to contact a Realtor for help locating land. Ideally we want to find land that's 1 acre or less, near the OKC or surrounding area, that is zoned for mobile homes, and that already has access to water/sewer and electrical. That's a tall order. We have no idea what something like that will cost in reality but we can't afford more than $300/mo in payments if we are also going to be making payments on the home itself. BUMMER! This week the only day I have off is Wednesday so I will be calling around to find a realtor who can give us a better idea of where and how much we are looking at for this project.
More kinks in the master plan, but where there's a will, there's a way.
