Hail again all,

I was in Wilmington all last week (rented a vintage home in historic downtown). The visit was primarily to meet with old friends and some family BUT also to evaluate builders in the area.

I think I have settled on Logan Homes as the builder and now beginning to shop for a bank. If you recall from my last posts, 1) in April of this year I bought both the lots at the end of the cul-de-sac on Breffin Court (near the end of St. James Drive), and 2) I have a job in Florida for another 1.5 years, then taking a "generous package" and retiring to SJP. Logan seems receptive to leasing back the home for a yield as a model home which would work well for me. Their Banyan III model seems to be the right home for me.

I have some reservations about building while being so far away, but I will try to make it up for each milestone meeting.

P.S. I can confirm the plan for St. James Drive to eventually go all the way west to the highway leading to Oak Island.

Lee Linton

Can someone be kind enough to give me a breakdown of the "neighborhoods" of St James. Housing types, development status, price range, etc. Thanks

If you are looking at existing homes, you can use a real estate site. One example has places ranging from a condo at $114,900 up to a custom waterfront house at $1.199 million. Here's a page in the moderate price range: Brunswick County Real Estate: Brunswick County NC Real Estate - Brunswick County Property For Sale

It may be most useful to plot where the houses are in your desired price range.

Default Gardening in St James Sand

Hello all,

First post after lurking for 6 months. Bought a lot in Woodlands Park in May, and have found tons of useful info here (and some good laughs). Visited St James last week for several days and so excited to be building in a year or two and relocating from Ohio.

One thing keeping me up at night is the thought of gardening in sand. Our lot looks just like beach sand under the pine needles. I'm an organic gardener and know the answer to soil problems it to amend the soil with organic matter.

Any thoughts, advice, word of progress from anyone that has faced this gardening challenge? Any good sources for organic matter? Does the POA permit compost piles, bins?
