My Hideout.. and yours too if u like
« on: December 21, 2016, 07:44:53 pm »
Let me introduce you to my hideout... the Lazy R
 

 

13 acres of isolation 1/4 mile west of NCs Pamlico Sound.
Thats a 3 acre man made pond there where NCDOT took dirt out of to use to raise the surrounding roadways.. its called a 'borrow pond'...
The area is 2ft above sea level so drainage is provided by canals..
   I am turning this into a hunting/fishing retreat which will include 3 1bdrm cabins.
The surrounding area is ideal for migratory bird hunts, deer and bear hunting and ofcourse fishing.. either fresh or salt.. inland, coastal or gulf stream deep water...
   What better launch point than the Lazy R?
 More pics and tidbits as we progress further

  Since you are building 3 separate cabins is this a business venture?

The County has strict 130mph construction requirements and the "development plan " has to be okd by FEMA.
    The cabins will raised on pilings 7ft tall.
    Being a  wildlife freak  since i was born.. this is a dream..

Hey, u got a point. I'll ask Boeing.
   That building inspector is a tricky guy...
    Being at the coast of NC the property is in a Hurricane Zone 3 building code area.. and the requirements for habitation is for the residence to withstand 130 mph winds...
Dang... that took longer to 1 thumb type for some reason

My mother's family is from that area.  About 10 miles west of Oriental.  I may still have family in the area.  Went thru my first hurricane down there.
