Bobby, who did the driveway, was telling me that he worked for the builders of these homes as a draftsman in the 1960's. These homes were built to sell to folks from the northern states for winter and vacation homes. The sales pitch offered a free
week Florida vacation, in their new hotel the first one in DELTONA. He said the sellers bused folk to Daytona and let them on the beach for a couple hours. Then the next day to Silver Springs to ride on the glass bottom boats. Then the rest of the time was high pressure sales.
$300 down and $40 a month for 20 years. The town of Deltona is laid out well. good wide roads and large lots for the smaller homes. Of course larger and more costly homes are here also. We just picked the low end of the spectrum.
WE came back from our walk and sat down in the living room of the house to talk. We have decided (for now) that we will stay in the coach thru Christmas and into the new year. We are taking a 'vacation' LOL in January for a couple weeks, maybe four. Then when we come back, move some stuff into the house until mid spring.
Then another vacation to NC and Pennsylvania (maybe Maryland) before coming home. We like to vacation. ;-)
We really want to take another trip with our sons. They are more fun since they (and we) are older. LOL
House update: We bought a Full size BR suit for $125. It was from the guest room at an Estate Sale at Ormond Beach. The mattress set looked new, it had been antiqued. I refinished it. I hope to put pictures on tomorrow.
