Cottage #2 is underway in lovely Thunderbolt, Georgia!
Grading and silt fence are up in Thunderbolt!
Besides having the coolest name of all time for a town, Thunderbolt offers an amazing location for those who like easy access to downtown (its 4 miles, Tondee and I have run it) and to Tybee (14 miles). Not only that, but you don’t hear ANYTHING except crickets and birds at night — a little bit of Mayberry right here in the Savannah area.
View of the ICW from the Thunderbolt public pier
Thunderbolt is smack dab on the Wilmington River (the ICW) and still has a few shrimp boats left that call the “Tbolt” home. There is a great little park right across from Town Hall where I walk Tondee most days.
Bahia Bleu Marina is a stone’s throw away as well — with dry docking fees around $250/month for a 17′ McKee Craft (not that I’ve done the research or anything!). If you like to kayak or SUP, there’s a boat ramp on the other side of Highway 80, next to Desposito’s Seafood. Easy, easy, EASY living. And property taxes are much less than if you are in the City of Savannah.
Thunderbolt Coastal Cottage Charm
As I’ve mentioned before, as a single gal with an active pup, I’m only willing to build my cottages in finishes I’d choose for myself in areas I feel comfortable with. This cottage I’m building happens to be about a tenth of a mile from where I live currently. I’m so pleased to be building a home that fits into the coastal cottage style — I hope the home will help contribute to the community of Thunderbolt and bring in some good new residents with energy to get involved!
Thunderbolt cottage being built
I am changing things up and working with Van Tyson on this home. The finish levels will be comparable to the Isle of Hope home that closed this past February. Asking price is $235,000. Weather permitting, we should be complete around mid September 2015 and able to close by the end of September.
