I continue to think about that property. The more I think about it, the more possibilities I see in it. It would make an excellent first step, opening up the mail order and delivery side for me.
It would give me a permanent storage location for stock.
It would provide a living space that would be enough for me and these kitties.
It's close enough to a "main drag" that UPS and FedEx could find me regularly for pickups.
It's on a corner, easy access.
Plenty of parking for at least 6 cars.
Security grates on the windows of the store area.
If it should snow at all, access for trucks is cut off (but most of the town shuts down anyway)
No fencing around "private" areas.
No Garage, only a carport.
I still haven't seen the property. I guess I'll have to call the agent again and see what he can come up with to get us in for a viewing. I need to see if the apartment will need a lot of work for me to live there.
Fencing can be purchased and put up. That is a mild deterrent, and there is a chain-link on the one side. I didn't look at the other because I was going the other way.
The carport still gives shelter from rain and snow. That also is not a great deterrent. Also, lattice can be put up for privacy.
I've almost got myself talked into this property. I need to do a little more research. I hate that! I really need to see it, I guess.
