Hi, my family and I are considering moving to East TN from the gulf coast of FL. We are slowly being forced out by the high cost of living, not to mention the unbearable summers. We love the country and our peace and quiet. My main concern is getting jobs in TN. My husband is a contractor/carpenter currently employed fixing up all the foreclosures around here. I am a horse trainer/riding instructor. So with both of our careers in mind I am not sure of the potential outlook for jobs in TN. We have looked at houses in East TN and the landscape seems beautiful. The cost of living seems much lower (rent around here is no lower than 1200/mo for a decent place on a little acreage, more like 1500-2000). If anyone has any answers for me please feel free to give me your opinion!
