So, I've finally made the decision to move from Green Bay to somewhere in Kentucky. Will be checking out a few towns in a couple weeks.

I've been looking at homes for sale online and most of them don't have basements or garages. Where do people store things?

What part of the state? Nearly every home here in the west has a garage, but you only have a basement if you want an inside pool.

Size does matter. Depending on the age of the home you are interested in, most non-basement homes will have a garage and/or extra closet space. In the 1960-70's many homes were built on a poured pad, especially where there is a high water table. Most homes older will have a larger lot with plenty of room for a garage. There is no doubt that the tornado outbreak of April 1974 resulted in an increased number of basements. In some parts of the state, shallow rock makes basement construction very expensive, too.

I haven't seen a house in Northern KY without a basement. I guess they exist but I've never looked or seen one without a basement. I live in Florida and we store things in the garage or a storage unit.

Default Kentucky Storage

"I've been looking at homes for sale online and most of them don't have basements or garages. Where do people store things?"

I've never seen a house for sale without one or the other, basement or garage. Our house does not have a basement, and I'm fine with that, we have a garage though stacked to the ceiling with boxes. LOL.. no car in our garage only 'things'. <grin>

Good luck!

We've been looking in the Lex area at homes (via the internet, and two trips this year) and all the houses we saw have a basement and a garage.....although the garage is usually detached.

Is anyone on this thread familiar with the Lancaster area? Found a place on the internet, but we didn't get to visit Lancaster when we were there. We have a few questions, if anyone can help!

Thanks! I'm trying to get an aerial of the property, which is on Adkinson Way, but Mapquest and Yahoo Maps etc. don't recognize that road/street. Any ideas?

Try this ...
Flash Earth ...satellite and aerial imagery of the Earth in Flash

Use Microsoft VE Labels to find the street then switch between maps, google, yahoo to get a better image.

Thanks Davart .... I tried Flash Earth (cool!!) but it doesn't recognize the road name either. I'm beginning to think this is a private road, not a county road, since there are only two houses on it.
