We hope to build in Sunset Point next spring, but we have become very concerned about the lake level

We pruchased the lot last July, the lake water level was fine, but this summer the water level has been as low as 7ft below full.

When complete Sunset Pointe will be a beautiful community . Will you be living full time at Sunset Pointe? Is your house finished?

What builder did you use?

I have land on the lake (Davidson County side) the advice I would give to anyone thinking of buying land on the lake is to look at the land when the lake is down about 6 feet or so. If the waterfront still has good water you are looking at a good pice of land. I looked at my lot when the lake was down 8 feet and the waterfront at my land still had about 5 feet of good water. If the land is on a shoal you may lose your waterfront with the lake going down even a few feet. Also you will need 200 ft. of waterfront on your lot for a private dock to be allowed.
