Q: Did you have to downsize your possessions?
A: I still have a little bit more than I should have. To come out of a five-bedroom, three-bathroom home with a full basement into this home, and to be able to do it fairly easily, I thought was a test to the planning of the floor plans.
Q: Did you add in any energy-efficient features?
A: I wanted the low-e [low-emissivity] glass in my screened porch to keep down the heat in the summer, and they did that. We have a tankless water heater.
Q: How would you describe the relationships in an active adult neighborhood like yours?
A: We look out for each other. We have get-togethers monthly at the clubhouse, which has a fire pit and a pool. We have one family who has a houseboat on Lake Lanier and we all had a meal together on their houseboat.
Q: So, was this a good move for you and your husband?
A: We want to live here the rest of our lives.
