I don’t love living too far away from a town because of the sheer amount of driving it takes to get from 1 site to the next.
There’s a lot of joy that comes with having most of your needs & necessities within a 10 to 15 mile radius.
Nowadays that is the minimum distance I have to drive just to find a business of some kind. This is the life I chose for myself, in part because I thought I would like the seclusion & lull that comes with rural living. I’ll admit that there are afternoons when I am ecstatic for this really reason, however they’re few & far between. I don’t love all of the bugs that come into our new home either. Once they find their way inside walls, ceilings, & floors, it’s over until you get your new home treated with insecticides. Aside from the rampant bugs, another unlucky side effect from this rural environment is in part the sheer amount of dust & dirt in average outdoor air. It will get inside your home, cars, & business before you recognize it. The air cleaner that I have near our front door is much better than nothing at all, however it cannot work miracles. It collects a relaxing amount of dust that would otherwise end up in our indoor air, however it would be better to own a central air cleaner as well. That way I can have it affect all of the air in our new home while it’s tied up running & cycling. You can avoid needing many air cleaners & putting them in every zone to keep your beach new home protected from airborne allergens & contaminants.
