Loftus Land Search***Virginia | The Journey Continues…

Home Sweet Home???

Beautiful Virginia!

The last stop of our spring break scouting trip was the beautiful state of Virginia.

We were pleasantly surprised at all of the scenic and spectacular views of Eastern Virginia! We loved it so much so that we have narrowed down our search to a small area in Virginia as well as North Carolina. So although we did not find our exact land this time, we are hopefully much closer to building our home!!

Stay tuned…

Loftus Land Search*** North Carolina | The Journey of Building Our Home

Gorgeous North Carolina!!!

After scouting land in Kentucky and Tennessee we scooted on down to North Carolina. Starting off near the North Carolina / South Carolina border, then headed up towards the beautiful inner banks. North Carolina quickly shot to the top of the list!!! Stunning.

Loftus Land Search***Tennessee | The Journey Of Building Our Home

After looking at property in Kentucky we then headed on to Tennessee where we met the nicest people, Realtor Julia White and her Husband. They had a few different locations to show us and we are so grateful for their hospitality, research and patience.

Loftus Land Search***Kentucky | The Journey of Building Our Dream Home

Wow what a fast blur the last 12 days have been! We made it back safely, thank goodness, from our cross-country road trip. Our search for land to build our home proved successful in the fact that we believe we have narrowed down our search for locations. There were 2 or 3 areas in particular that we could definitely see ourselves planting roots.

It was an amazing and eye-opening experience and I am grateful to have been able to explore different parts of the country and meet new friends! We looked at several properties in Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina and Virginia after dropping our boys of at Grandma Gaga’s House in Palos Heights, IL. Along the way driving from Boise Idaho we stopped in the following states: Utah, Wyoming, South Dakota, Iowa, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina and Virginia.

Ace and Kingston had a wonderful time hanging out at Grandma’s House and doing all sorts of fun things including going to the movies, Going to Fun zone, playing with their cousins Jack and Dylan and going to the Museum of Science and Industry.

I will be blogging a few separate posts covering the entire trip. This first post will cover some pictures from our time in Kentucky!! Kentucky had Thoroughbreds, Distillery’s, friendly people and a deep love for the University of Kentucky…
