You might want to check out the first part of this thread: NYers retiring to TN

With Google Maps' Street View function you can take a virtual drive through downtown Saltillo...just don't blink! Keep in mind that the nearest hospital is in Savannah, a half-hour drive from Saltillo.

FWIW, Hardin Co. allows retail package stores but not liquor by the drink.

We almost bought in Saltillo - I loved that house but the inspection came up with too many issues. Eh, I thought it was the end of the world at the time we looked, but a year later, we bought a house at the end of the world that made Saltillo look like a busy place.

Hubby and I have to renew our CPR and first aid certs before the move.

Thank you for the info!
Right now we are in WI and are fed up with the cold! We have 4 horses and like the country living...we have 5 acres here and are approx 15 min from a small Walmart and small hospital..the home we found on Newton Rd is exactly what we are looking for it reminds us of our Cabin we have in the northwoods here!
Need to find jobs still and gather a litttle more info!
thanx

Jobs and Saltillo ARE mutually exclusive. Good luck though.

We dont need basements. We dont really have a "frost line" so our utilities dont need the protection that a basement offers. Plus, many Southerners have storm cellars or, as us old fogies have. "root cellars" where we store our canned and preserved foods and seek shelter from tornadoes.

There is also an issue with rock - it isn't to dig a basement in shale, I've read. Besides, with enough land, you can build your basement on the main floor! What do you keep in a basement - stuff and water heater/furnace/laundry room. Put stuff in the attic and create a utility room. You mostly need central air and that goes outside.

We are opting for hot water on demand rather than a tank. Right now there's a small tank sitting in a closet. Heating the water right at the faucets makes more sense.

I don't see a Newton Road in Saltillo.

Unemployment is high in that area. I think driving 30 minutes to get to a job is being very, very optimistic.

Be careful of those on-demand water heaters. Most people dont realize that the faucet has to be turned on full force before the heaters kicks on.
I have installed a timer on my water heater, and have it turn on only 6 hours per day. We rarely notice the difference with it being on 24/7.
