Moving south has been a dream for us since our youngest daughter relocated to the Hilton Head area after college; every visit made it more appealing. Never did I think that we would find such a very special community to live in; our cottage met the criteria of downsizing but the location around the corner from the dock that overlooks a creek and the wetlands, two blocks from the pool (hardly anyone there!) which lies alongside the Broad River and another dock complete with pavilion has enriched our lives so much (the golf cart makes it even more fun too!). There is a gorgeous town center with a few nice restaurant, our own Post Office (there are no mailboxes), the Park House next to the tennis courts to house the various community groups and numerous playgrounds; it doesn't hurt that the speed limit is 18 miles an hour - no racing cars and wonderful lush landscaping that makes this the best place to be able to walk, bike ride (and explore with that golf cart!). When we are more settled, we hope to get a kayak too as there are endless waterways to explore. We have already made some special friends that we enjoy very much and Habersham is a great place to develop a social life - everyone who lives here, is here because they want to be here and it makes a big difference; and they came from all over the US. Most found the community by visiting or reading about it and once you come, you understand why you don't want to leave. It also helps to have our littlest grandson just 1/2 hour away - one straight shot! . . and a new one on the way in November. So life is good.
Some more built ins make for a very efficient and functional work room. Room for my book collection was a MUST!
Originally, I had planned to use the cubbies for my wool; however, I decided to continue to store my wool in plastic drawers as it easy easy to see and keeps it safe and convenient. I've since rearranged these to the other side of the room and stacked them higher so they take up less space but you get the idea
