We also wanted it within a reasonable distance of our septic tank and leech field.

In August of 2017 we had a local contractor to clear the land and the same day install our new septic system. Since no public sewer exists in our area, we were required to seek approval and install a septic tank from the State.

The retirement income was the easy part – The part-time gig took a little more time than I had hoped with the usual background checks, training and waiting.
