A little over a year ago my husband and I purchased a couple of acres in a lakeside subdivision south of Knoxville with the intention of building our "dream home."
Now we have been informed that the guidelines have changed and our minimalist roof slope will not be acceptable. What is most irritating is that my husband volunteered to serve on the architectural review committee but was never given an opportunity to voice an opinion on this change. Even if the powers that be (and that's the problem with most HOAs) reversed the decision, we have such a bad taste in our mouths that we have no desire to continue at that location.
So this weekend we're off to look at some properties further east.
Needless to say the last couple of days have been spent poring over multiple listings and nothing has been accomplished in the sewing room. Wish us luck!
