My name is Glenda and this is my semi-retirement adventure. I know many of us dream about owning a second home on the beach, in the mountains, near a lake, on a river or at one of our favorite vacation spots. That will happen for some of us. For others it will always be a dream. This site is for those achieving or desiring the dream. It is my goal to share tips and my learning about design and real estate to help you make that escape or special place to happen. It may include packing the car, purchasing tickets or escaping to a space in your home, you can live the dream. I hope to inspire you to move forward and create your sanctuary, be if for personal use or to share for maintenance or profit.
