Blog Update and Final Post

Waxhaw, NC  2022 

Some progress is being made with the house.  You can see the plumbing is installed in advance of the pouring of the concrete slab/foundation.  Not a lot of houses have basements here in North Carolina.  Perhaps this week the slab will be poured, if the weather permits.  

I've been working on redesigning my blog, since I no longer live in Connecticut.  Please visit my new blog Notes from North Carolina.  All my future posts will be made there.  Thank you for years of reading Connecticut Diaries.

Lot 65

Waxhaw, NC  2022
It has been a long time since I've posted anything.  My wife and I relocated to North Carolina in December and we're currently renting an AirBnb  apartment in Charlotte, awaiting the completion of our "retirement" home in Waxhaw.  We really like the Charlotte area, and so far I have not missed any of the cold weather and snow that has hit Connecticut and New England the last few weeks.  The picture was taken on January 11, and as you can see, we have a long ways to go before the house will be ready.

Relocation is a big hassle, especially when one does not know when your new house will be ready for occupancy.  The construction industry has been hit hard with supply shortages, labor shortages thus delaying the construction.  Who builds a new house in the middle of a pandemic??  For now, our temporary home is in Clinton, CT and within a few weeks, we'll be travelling to North Carolina.  We'll find some temporary housing there while we await the completion of our new "retirement" house.

I'm sure it must mean something to someone.

Chevy Truck

Niantic, CT  2021

Things have been pretty hectic around here since the start of our move south.  My wife and I took one last walk through downtown Niantic during a fall festival last month.  I'm only now getting around to posting some of these pictures.
