    Here my little slice of heaven.

    Bought our home last year with this beauty. Just got it opened up for the spring. We are located in South GA

    Re: Here my little slice of heaven.

    We bought the house last year and it was ready to go. Over the Winter I let it completely go. BADDD IDEA! Its took the last month of Vacuuming waste, shocking, floccing, tearing my pump apart to remove rocks from the impeller. lol I finally almost have the chlorine coming down to a safe level. Currently when I test it the water turns orange. YIKES

    Re: Here my little slice of heaven.

    HA yeah I know. I made sure I babysat it very well when burning in it the first couple times. The outside of the blocks stays nice and cool. I always have the water hose handy Just in case. I'm sure my HOI would laugh in my face if i explained this is why my house burnt down.

    BTW I know i need landscaping badly. Hopefully gonna take care of that this season. It was let go as the previous owners bought it from foreclosure. The property sat for a good while.

    Re: Here my little slice of heaven.

    Thanks everyone for the kind words. We really enjoy our location and property its-self. We actually only own .45 acres but we are on a small lake with a canal that goes behind our house. which gives us direct access for fishing etc. The lots on either side of us have not been built on so we feel like we have more space than we do. That may change but I don't foresee that for a while. There is ZERO new home construction in our area.

    Here is an arial view and a few more pictures

    I hope to one day own an area as large as my whole subdivision including the lake, instead of a .5 acres slice. lol

    Thanks. It definently needs landscaping work BADLY. We are currently working on the front of the house now. Only improvement I've done in the back is to spread grass seed and fertilizer to try and fill in the blanks. lol
