Default Laaaaaaand HO!!

We now own a very, very, very, VERY small piece of Texas! We bought 10 acres outside of Walnut Springs in a new planned multi-acre community. For those that don't know, Walnut Springs is outside of Glen Rose. Glen Rose is famous for Dinosaur State Park, which some may have heard of. That, in turn, is about :30 minutes to the SW of Grandbury. And Granbury is about :40 minutes SW of Ft. Worth, which is about 953 miles SW of the Stevens Convention Center where MCACN is held..... just to put it into perspective

What's this all mean? Kelly gets horses in the backyard, and I get a shop that will visible from space! I'm coming up with plans for a multi-stage building with a parts room, metal room, bodyshop, paint booth, and a clean assembly room. This should encompass 6 of the 10 acres. Oh... they'll be a house on there somewhere too!

Bad news? I'll be broke so there won't be any cars in the shop...... but it sure will be clean and nice!!

Cheers
Dave

Dave,

Congrats to you and Kelly. It will be fun to build the house, shop and stable. And, even more fun to use it all. Looking forward to the "property build".

Phil W.

Thanks guys! We're pretty excited! Oh no, Dan. That's the beauty of this. The only down time I'll have in building the cars will be the actual move to the new house. The builder we've selected can do everything we want, so when the time comes to move in, everything will be ready to go! Well.... that's the theory, anyway. You know how some builders are... Mustang will be done late Spring and then it's onto the T/A.

Thanks for the well wishes!
Cheers

Dave
