When we build our home in Port Severn the trail runs directly in front of the property. Go to the end of the driveway and you're on the trail.

Have you figured out the floor plan yet?

Got a floor plan and going through applying for a variance from the township. They changed the setbacks recently. My neighbour just applied for and was granted a variance that is almost exactly the same as I will be looking for so the timing is good while it is still fresh in the minds of the planning department and the committee of adjustment. Once the variance is approved I can get my drawings required for a building permit. I hope to start construction in the spring and move in next fall.

My wife is still flip flopping between moving and not. Selling the house in Toronto shouldn't be a problem. Houses on our street have been selling in 2 to 4 days with a line up of people the day they go on the market then selling for well above asking.

She hasn't bought in yet?  You might need a backup plan then.  I would dump the TO home in a heartbeat and move further north.  

 

We are in the same dilemma, sure the wife wants to move north but might need to have a buffer zone property like in Barrie to keep it civil.

No sledding near my house! Bought a camp in the UP and keep the sleds there. The trail is a block away and boondocking is right outside the door.

On a good season I can leave right from the door hit the lake and be on the trails in minutes. Mostly I leave right from the deck of the cabin though.

I bought that camp instead of a new Suburban and saved 20k. Sad but true story. The dog is only 40lb and stays on top. Lol

We had to once almost. Our golden took a step off the deck and disappeared. I just finished pulling my boots on and a head popped up.

Once it starts getting deep, he shits on the plowed driveway and doesn't go out into the yard.
