Our Jamestown TN Property for Sale

Sunday, September 24, 2017

We've had our property in Jamestown TN up for sale by owner for a while now, not sure if we ever sent it out to all our RV friends. Shame on us! We know it will take a unique buyer, someone that wants a ready-to-go place for their RV with room to build a house or cabin, or someone who wants to enclose the existing pavilion and convert it into living quarters. Small town living, good year round climate, no state income tax, friendly people and a beautiful state.

Please share this page with anyone you think might be interested!

5 Wooded Acres, set up for RV or mobile home
plus partially cleared spot for building a home.

Wooded, unrestricted 5 acres on county road in Fentress County, TN (just south of Jamestown). We bought this property in 2009 with the intent of eventually building a house. In the meantime, we added a 12' x 24' double door shed with large exhaust fan and a 24' x 60' (with 14' clearance) pavilion for our fifth wheel trailer and medium-duty Freightliner truck.

There is a septic tank, power, city water and a temporary phone line which provides DSL for internet. View the google satellite map view and the star is on our property. You can just see the roof of our buildings. To the left is our neighbor who owns the surrounding 15 acres. The cleared area is at the edge of our property and belongs to our neighbor.

No building permits are required per the Fentress County website.

Fentress County does not have zoning regulations or special building permit requirements. Please be sure to check the property deed for any specific restrictions that may be required for the property. All state laws for permits and inspections must be followed. For more information you may contact the County Executive’s Office 931-879-7713.
The property is south of Jamestown, TN. Small town living, good year-round climate, no state income tax, reasonable registration & insurance rates, friendly people and a beautiful state full of sights to see.

9/22/2017: Celebrate the Small Things

It's Friday and time to post my Celebrate the Small Things on this blog.

My small things for this past week, some not so small, but all great!

Late this week (but dating it yesterday). Been BUSY!!!

Stu spent the week getting ready to head out on the motorcycle for three weeks. He has several firefighter events to attend and since he hadn't done a long motorcycle ride, I encouraged him to go enjoy! We might have both gone but I have an author event the same day as one of his events. Oops! Besides getting his gear ready, he also did a lot of little things around the house so I didn't have to deal with them - just the dog (that's enough). Cooper helped him prepare on the morning he left!

I've had a lot of busy time, too. First was getting my long awaited wedding ring tattoo. While I absolutely LOVE our gold Celtic wedding rings, mine has gotten too small. Due to the pattern, it can't be enlarged (it was stretched once already. Last summer, we camped with motorcycle friends from Canada and they both had ring tattoos, each different to represent their spouse. I had considered getting one more tattoo, a double heart on the inside of my write, but never got around to it. So, that is my wedding ring tattoo! It's still healing but I love it.

But had that's not all, I just put Almost a Touch, the long awaited third book in my Klondike mystery series. Yippee!! I still have some edits to do in the next couple of days, but on October first, it will be LIVE! Hoping for a lot of pre-orders....[hint, hint]

GREAT week, hope yours was the same.

Ciao for now!

My small things for this past week, some not so small, but all great!

Missed last week and still busy, so this will be short and sweet!

Cooper has had an adventurous week. First up - he discovered he could slip under one of the gates and turned up at our front door, asking in. Stu fixed that as soon as we found where he was getting out. Then on Wednesday, he was neutered and forced to wear the inner tube of shame. (LOL)

Stu has been busy with chores, like the above mentioned fence issue, plus installing new locks on all our west facing windows. The original ones were sun-rotted plastic and now they are metal and will outlast us! We also finally got rid of the HORRIBLE fake wood blinds in the office and put in bamboo Roman shades. I love them. They look so much better than the drooping mini-blinds and will keep out as much light as those did since they never closed up the way they should have.

We've also been working on cleaning up the RV inside, getting it ready for a dog crate (which will become my end table). We reinstalled the dining room chairs, removed the file cabinet and rolling computer cart and sorted through a ton of office supply stuff that is now inside. I have two overhead cabinets and a small tote that will store what we think we will need for office supplies. The lamp that was on the dining table, which was wedged into the corner and became Stu's desk, will go on top of the dog crate as well as our laser printer. Lots of organization going on! We also snagged two nice used chairs for $20 each, they go with our current dining room mish-mash and are quite comfortable.

Me? I finally got Almost a Touch out to my four beta readers. I hope to have everyone's feedback this weekend so I can edit. Then back out to 4-6 proofreaders and hopefully, on to publication at Amazon by the end of the month. Phew!

Other than that, I've been prepping for the book signing/author event on October 7th. I have 24 copies of Not a Whisper, 18 copies of Barely a Spark, signs, postcards, business cards, pens, guest book pages for newsletter sign-up and prizes! Five tote bags (like the one I'm using to carry stuff), one coffee mug, a Dead Fred pen holder, Crime Scene sandwich bags and Crime Scene bandaids. All in good fun! Hope to see some old friends and make some new ones!

Ciao for now!
